Hi all,I'm trying to figure out a way to hide the pond liner when the water drops due to evaporation etc. The only way I can think is to put soil on top of the liner, the flat section, then lay…Continue
Hi all,I'm thinking of getting a decent trailer this year. I'd use it for transporting waste, tree and hedge cuttings, grass etc. Don't need it for heavy plant or bulk bags of aggregates.What trailer…Continue
HiI'm building a gravel path for a customer and the initial plan was to use brick/stone for the edging. The customer then asked if I could make a temporary edge with wood until he finds the stone he…Continue
"I've never used a grinder, can always get a razor sharp chain with just a round file. Practice on old chains. It's the corner of the tooth that does most work. Be careful how you handle the saw, a split second hitting the ground means…"
"Really nice drawings! I'm taking first steps into garden design and would love to create drawings like that!
As for your tech question, ask your scanner to save it as a .jpg so you have it as an image file. You can then open it in something…"
"I mostly use wolf hand tools esp for weeding as can carry alot of different tools without taking up much space, just a few handles and then swap the tool heads round, when first saw the wolf system didnt think they would be up to much but they have…"

"My Indespension, 8x5, twin axle, with ramp has served me 17 years(with one new floor) of constant use for plant, arisings and aggregates. If you don't want to put equipment on it, consider a tipping facility."
"I have a 8x4 braked Ifor Williams with full mesh sides. You would be amazed how much you can fit in in, cover the top in tarp and strap it down. Had mine for about 10 years +, brilliant trailer I bought new. Looking for another similar this year.…"
"I've got the 6x4 IWT with mesh sides and it's perfect. Holds about a week's waste, so it's cost-effective at the tip. Just keep it secure.
With hindsight the 4-wheeled would be worth the extra, a puncture on my 2-wheel is a pain.…"
