Laying Turf

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 13:13

We have taken up decking and have a drop of varying degrees.  At some places it is 18" deep.  We would like to lay turf but how do we do it without filling it all with top soil.  Any suggestions welcome please.

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply.  Advice well received.......I think you know what I'll be doing this Bank Holiday!

Lining a Vegetable Trug?

I have bought myself a lovely raised veg trug. It measures 1.8m*80cms*70cms and the wood is treated.  Before I load in my compost do I need to line the trug with plastic, or anything else and should I add stones for drainage in the bottom of the trug? I am new to growing veg and with a poor back the raised trug idea seems brilliant.....I hope it is. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you - brilliant advice.  I will try and find a good gardener to take up the decking and put some paving slabs down.  Again - thank you.

Can I put an 8 X 10 greenhouse on decking?  Can I screw the base onto decking?  Am I heading for disaster?  I will buy toughened glass and bar capping.

Thank you so much for your reply.  I've had the tree pruned but will leave the wound alone and let the tree heal naturally.

I have a 30ft Tulip Tree. A branch has come down and torn the bark of the tree with it.  Should I treat the wound? If so what would anyone recommend, please?

Wow!  Thanks to all these wonderful ideas.  I really do appreciate all your help and will google all the hedges mentioned to find out more.

 Hypercharleyfarley.......we currently have a post and wire fence at the bottom of the garden. (between us and the horses)  The problem is that the owners of the horses insist on parking their cars directly in our line of view.  They also have enough clutter of pallets, material and old rubbish in the field that I've now had enough and want to screen off as much of their rubbish as I can without completely obliterating our view.  Yes, I have tried speaking to the horse owners but they just don't seem to understand!

I would like to plant a 40 foot hedge along the back part of our garden.  I'd like it to grow to about 4 feet high.  BUT I need something that horses won't eat and will give us privacy all year round.  I have tried pampas grass and the horses ate all of that they have also eaten my forsythia.I have sandy soil.  Any ideas welcomed.
