Thanks Dave Just the way it all worked out re landscaping project after a build. However, they couldnt supply turf over Jan when really cold and then started cutting it a couple of weeks ago - though I 'was' concernd it looked very pale! thks

NEW LAWN - NEED TO WATER!!

Posted: 24/02/2013 at 08:23

Hi all - we have had a large area of turf laid - it has been in stages so some has taken quite well even though laid since last Nov - it is a little yellow but been told it will survive. Weather forecast in Manchester is 2 degr max going poss down to - 1 today and having had at least 100 sq m laid last week have been unable to water it due to cold weather. Question is - do I wait for a few more days for warmer weather before I water or do it now even with poss frost? Some areas i.e. under a tree are quite dry du to roots etc and this has been 'down' for 5-6 days now. Many thanks Steve - ps will attach photos asap.

Leylandii Hedge - mixed colours?

Many thanks already have bought some for half the run so just needed to know before I bought the rest - I can either just buy all dark green now or mix them. Thanks for answers - any further much welcomed as will be trimming also. Have beech hedge on other side and these are see through in winter and we need privacy thks steve

thanks again - 'think' maybe best idea is to buy more established light green and lower dark green so they have a chance chrs Steve

Leylandii Hedge - mixed colours?

Hi all - Im about to plant a long line of Leylandii to create a hedge - I know the dark green variety grow quickly - but have 'seen' a hedge where the golden variety are interspaced with the dark ones and it may it look less dreary. However, a leylandii stockist has told me that the dark will out-muscle the golden and advises on just a dark green hedge. Has anyone got experience of this as would much prefer dual colours if poss, though I 'am' having to purchase small ones 1-2ft tall to keep costs down. thanks Steve
