    Thanks guys. You’re amazing.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.

    Hopefully any threat of a hosepipe ban will have gone before you lay your lawn.


    In case anyone doesn't realise this, as I didn't until the other day, be sure to wear good garden gloves if you try pulling up bindweed in your garden as the sap can cause you to suffer contact dermatitis.

    Wish the local council would reverse their decision to only collect garden waste monthly. Two days after the last collection, my bin is already full with grass and leaves, and I’ve already got more waiting to go in. It’s going to be a long month.

    I wear these all the time , You can safely go about your business without them getting in the way.

    As a general rule you wouldn't do any in Summer as the lack of rain can be a killer.
    Cheapest option is Seed but you can't seed until late September or early spring .
    If you don't mind watering it everyday you could turf it now or maybe seed but you would have to water it all everyday so could be impossible with seed.
    Whatever route you chose be sure to get a good base free from stones etc ,Might be worth a ton of top soil if the soil is poor , Then a pre turf fertiliser to finish off before turfing.
    Like I say unless you don't mind the cost of the water leave both until late September.

    What can I do to restore my lawn to its former glory, quick smart.

    Cheers in advance.

    Thanks Lard, I will have a look for a smaller size, the large will probably be too big for me.

    Very disappointed with the Bosch chipper.
    Used it 3 times now, no more than an hour total.
    The blades are already worn, and I've only been chipping the prunings from the old apple tree, and hawthorn hedge trimmings.

    Yes they do several sizes I use the small ones and they fit me perfectly and are nice and tight , I have small hands so I am guessing yours will be the same as in Blackadder "I have a womans hands "

    Ordered a ryobi plusone strimmer, ice got the batteries and chargers already and my old wired one has eaten itself over the years.

    I was looking at one myself as 90% of my work it would be suitable, I would like to try before I buy sadly as I know it won't be as powerful as my petrol one but then I would have two strimmers as I would need the petrol one occasionally, So I thought sod it don't bother.

    They look very practical. Black would co-ordinate nicely with my balaclava as well!

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.
