Bricks for lawn edging

Posted: Today at 19:59

I neglected to mention that one side would be lawn and the other would be to restrain some decorative gravel acting as a mulch around the planting (this is all about a pond really) and thus I think I do need stable. Around the outside edges of the land, the bricks are laid on sharp sand and haven't moved that much but you can see they aren't quite level these days!

Ye gads, I'm not skilled enough for that. I might manage to get these just about level...

As this bed is in the middle of the lawn, you may have just made a very good point that I hadn't considered.

I need to put some bricks around the edge of the new flower bed that I have created, are engineering bricks OK and what mix of cement should I use?

MIne went through winter well last year (I suspect as it was mild and I am down South) and I have 10" high seedlings that searching online suggests I should move in Spring?

Rowan tree unwell?

I don't know but our newly planted mountain ash did similar last year and had no flowers or berries at all, this year it has done much better. I suspect it is partly to do with newness and establishing itself.

We have had billions of the bar stewards this year, grudgingly I was reluctantly forced to use pellets sparingly to save the bedding plants and hostas...

The plants are still there, it was just the flowers that seemed to be tasty to someone...

Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 20:55

There is absolutely no benefit to cats in being out at night. It is recommended that they stay in from dusk til dawn as they fight less, are less likely to be involved in accidents and cause less damage to wildlife.

You can also reduce hunting by making sure that cats wear at least two bells on a collar or one of the ultrasonic devices to alert possible prey animals.
