Dog Area

Posted: 14/03/2014 at 14:27

how did you get your dog to poo and pee in the same area. My dog will wait even if he needs it to go to the local park away from his house to do this thing. And he will go to the corner of the park where there are bushes and do it there. If you look at him, he gets shy and instantly stops and then find a new place to go when your not looking.

How do I deter/ catch thieves from my allotment

Posted: 14/03/2014 at 14:22

Last year some of us at the allotment Im at complained about theives. These theives not only stole my stuff but also damaged the stuff they wont take. Is there any advice anyone can give with regards to deterring them. There were a few poeple talking about getting CCTV cameras last year but no one did anything seeing it was July August time and there is no point anymore. This year Ive looked around and saw wireless CCTV camera kit at BnQ. I went online and found this one cheaper. The only problem is that it needs power. Im thinking of getting the cameras connected to solor power generator as it is wireless I can hide the DVR monitor, so they scums cant follow the cabling to it.


I was wondering if anyone know how to buy a solor power generator for cheap/ think of another way I can power to the cameras. Any advice would be great.

Anything thats on the flat roof, even algae spores will come contaminiate the water, leading to the discolourisation/ smell of the water. You can pop down to your garden centre, and they will have here are a couple of water purification products you can buy.
