top dressing for a lawn

Posted: 06/04/2013 at 11:11

Excuse me jumping in here - I am also wanting to improve my lawn and just wondered if George could share any knowledge of leveling a lawn.  Mine is a bit 'bumpy', it has dips/hollows.  Not major but the mower doesn't roll smoothly over it

Brilliant picture BTB - I have only recently begun to appreciate how facinating the night sky is - would love to get a telescope.

I have been a weather watcher for 5+ years - not because of the garden but to know what to expect when I have to take the dog for a walk.  I don't have to garden if it's not suitable weather but she has to go for a walk.

Would appear you have done all you could then - is the battle still worth fighting - I'd just not use them again.  Here's hoping in another 4 months you get a sympathetic letter of apology and some compensation.

Think you must have used the key word lilylouise - 'disapointed'.  Someone on a differnet thread said they always get a better response/more positive outcome when making a complaint by using the word 'disappointed'.  Probably also helps to be calm and polite as Sotongeoff says.  A degree of patience is also required as these large companies are dealing with huge numbers of customers and in these days of cut back probs don't have sufficient staff to deal.  Just an opionion.

I have one in a pot - waiting to go in the border - and it has quite a lot of new shoots.

The best multi purpose compost this year

What's even more puzzling is that 'Which? Gardening' list Verve from B&Q in their top four - **** /88-91% test score.  Just goes to show its always good to know opionions from those who actually use the product.  I have bought Verve again this year and find it to be much the same as it always is, but in the past I haven't really been a 'serious' gardener, but now I'm paying more attention maybe it will realise its short comings.














Imagine my excitement....
