"Try Lolium perenne or something similar. There's a fair bit of research been carried out on it and it's harmless if eaten. Quite easy to maintain too I am told."

John Baker replied to Gary RK's discussion Tyre sealant for ride-ons, ATM/ATV's
"Had forgotten that. When I first had the Etesia, often found front tyres flat on trailer. Put it down to lateral shake when moving between sites, breaking the tubeless seal, so I had inner tubes put in early on. Very easy to change front tyres..just…"
John Baker replied to Neil Petrie BSc Landscape Mgt's discussion Mauyama hedge cutters - any experience or thoughts?
"Ok, call me ignorant or stupid, but following links from this I find several machines feature 'reverse start', both hedgetrimmers and brushcutters. I haven't a baldy notion what this means....can anyone enlighten me?"

"Regularly got punctures in front wheels of ride-on (Etesia). Eventually got the front wheels 'solid filled' and the problem is (obviously) gone. Cost a few bob, they are fairly heavy and I notice there is faster wear on the tyres, but well…"

John Baker replied to Peter's discussion Have you turned down work on religious/moral grounds?

John Baker replied to daniel's discussion Do I need a spraying licence?
"Grandfather rights only apply to people spraying on their own land so mainly applies to nurserymen and farmers and certainly not to any landscaper operating on a customer's property."

John Baker replied to John Baker's discussion Tree ID?
"Yes, Z. serrata seemed to tick quite a lot of boxes. Longest leaf I could find was 140mm, but most are in the range 70-120mm. Agree about the leaves not looking right, they were why I discounted Cherry originally.  "
