Fences Legal High

Posted: 24/06/2012 at 14:44

How about putting your own fencing up within the confines of your garden at the same height - should only take a few inches away. This way it saves all the hassle and you'll be able to stain it.

I know this is not answering your question, but its a way round the problem.

Anything for an easy life, i say !!

Is the panel in the confines of the boundary fence that divides both your gardens or is a replacement boundary fence. If its inside the confines of their garden, you cannot as it's their property. But if its a boundary fence, possibly....but I'm not a 100%.

Just shout over the fence one nice evening - hey, can I stain this side of fence ( listen to their response) cheers !!

Not sure, if this is of much use....

peas are going yellow

How big is the pot ?? They could be either potbound or hungry. Too much water flushes away important nutrients and too small a pot means no food. Oh, and this cold weather doesn't help.

blanketweed in my wildlife pond

What causes blanketweed - a pond which is high in nitrates and phosphates plus sun.

How to prevent blanketweed - expel nitrates, reduce phosphates and sun.

Another possibility is something which is high in nutrients must be leaching into the water.

Pulling it out is the worse thing you can do, unless it is seriously severe, because this releases more spores back into the water, further adding to the problem.

What kind of compost did you use to plant up ? Hopefully it wasn't garden. If it was that's probably the source of this problem.

peas have yellow !

This awful weather and the possibility that its washed away vital nutrients from the soil.

My peas are just dreadful this year - the worst year by far. There just not growing despite the rain.

Re-felting a shed

Posted: 22/06/2012 at 17:19

Refelting is easy peasy - throw the felt over the roof and nail it on with felt nails, tucking the edges under. Also, there are a zillion vids to watch on youtube, titled: How to refelt a shed roof.

As for the door, build it yourself - just copy the old door using new timber, or call a joiner round. If they are any good, this will be a easy job for them.

why is my pond brown and not clear

Posted: 22/06/2012 at 16:49

Brown water is an accumulation of suspended particles caused by organic matter.

There are far too many fish for starters. That size pond should really hold 17 fish max.

Using the old rule-of-thumb of 1″ of fish per every 10 gallons - 15 fish at 7″ (for example) comes to a 1050 gallons pond.

How long has the water been brown, when did you start having problems ?? And how long you had the pond ??
