Grass and slabs...

The question is, when the grass sneaks over the damned slabs, how do I chase it back where it belongs without the accursed big scissors..?

I think I might need to lift the slabs and add some more builders sand beneath as I suspect they have slowly sunk a bit hence the encroachment!

There are hanging thingies like bird feeders that you can stuff material into, depends which looks easier to nick it from I guess!

They want the material for nesting, only solution I know of is to provide them with an easier source of something similar and maybe they will leave the baskets alone. Used to happen to me with coir too and I this year I have used a gardman sheet material (which tho fibrous is a little different and the name escapes me totally!) and so far they have left it alone.

Allotments and creatures.

I have an old strimmer kicking around that I don't use. I'm worried it's all in the wrist...

If I had space, I'd have goats definitely. I always found them very endearing during my work with them. These days it is puppies and kittens only and they are no help with the grass!
