Dusk today found me trying to haul out the last Forget-me-nots from the borders in the back garden. I've been getting a bit fed up of having to spend 1/2 hour afterwards picking the seeds off my fleece, and they give me a rash if I don't cover up, so this time I was stylishly attired in rubber gloves and sleeves wrapped in plastic bags strapped on with masking tape... nice. Note to self: next year pull them out before they set seed. The seed bank in the beds must be in hefty F-m-n credit by…Continue

I have signed us up for Twitter @mprlandscapes.
Currently still getting to grips with it (more of a Facebook girl myself) and 'tweeting' other local business' seems to be going well gaining contacts and getting our name out there.

Picking up pruning’s cleanly and mulching them to a fine degree, even when the prunings are large is something that many users of mulchers want to achieve. Well mulched material breaks down much quicker and helps mowing and harvesting operations. If there are a lot of stones on the floor mulching can be very difficult without damaging the mower.
