All good advise, thank you, sorry if I don't reply individually.
The committee are split on grass paths so we can have then, the choice I face is weeds on bare soil or grass. The bricks on site have been recycled into paths running across the site.
Q...I thought about not being able to walk on the seeded area's before about Feb or March time, would this be about right or would it be longer?
I've not got the fruit tree's yet so this bit was trickier as I'll need to walk on it to plant out but could pot then up at home and wait till Feb/March to plant out.
Thanks, Frank will mark out a section round where the tree's are planned to be planted. I was thinking of just a ft, clearly not big enough.
Having weeds in the grass is expected, me thought I'd get a strimmer, battery operated or manual mower. Jury's out on that one. Q is which would be best, me thinks a mower as it's quicker. if the blades are kept sharp and I do have hand shears and an edger to define the paths.
There are slow worms on the site although they don't eat enough slugs to keep the population down .
Q After sowing when would it need to be cut, would it be March/April and can it ghen be walked on?
