has recently been used to restore Old Street in St Helier, Jersey.
In December 2008 Instarmac’s Training Site Support Team demonstrated how Ultrascape Flowpoint could help them complete Old Street’s restoration, leading from St Helier’s Town Hall to the Magistrates Court. Following this, the local council adopted Ultrascape Flowpoint
to grout and finish the town centre, a total of 450m².
St. Helier Parish Council, both client and contractor,… Continue

Hello to you all at Landscape Juice Network from Jan & Paul Rogers!
What a great looking site. When I stumbled across LJN looking for hedge trimming advice I skimmed through a few topics & pages and it was quickly evident that I needed to join the community. I could not believe the posts I saw which were from people just like me i.e. new to the world of running a garden maintenance business, plus experienced people who have been in the game for years.
As a newbie… Continue

Ultrasape is to supply the Mortar Paving System for over 40.000m² external paved areas to the new MediaCityUK project in Manchester.
MediaCity UK will be the first purpose-built media community in the UK, housing over 2,500 BBC staff by 2011. The project will provide a “self-sustaining environment” in every way – which meant that Ultrascape products, with their fast-track use and high specification characteristics, were an ideal addition to the site’s… Continue

Hello all. I am writing this blogg to share my first project with you. My own garden. I moved in to my house just over a year ago. On first inspection the garden did not seem to bad. Basically it was just grass. It did need a bit of a clean up and a trim... so i thought. It was only after a bit of rain that i noticed the garden turned to swap, and never seemed to dry out properly.
After speaking to the old guy next door, i found that were my… Continue

I received a voicemail message at ten past eight this morning from one of my clients asking if I could call them back urgently.
It turned out that they had a “visit” the other day from a gardening company asking if they would like their hedges cut. Now we have previously quoted for this work a few years back but was too expensive as the client likes a bargain so happy to leave it for someone else.
When I turned up at 8:30 it felt like world war three was about to… Continue

We are currently in the middle of two adjacent contracts constructing quays on the edge of the Fal estuary in Cornwall. When we first quoted and tried to gather as much information about quay construction as possible it was difficult to discover much at all. The BS information is based largely on more modern standard construction and concentrates predominantly on the waterproofing qualities of the materials. Using drystone negates much of this… Continue

Not strictly speaking mathematically significant but anecdotally insightful for anyone who has the idea that gardening is a very romantic and easy career:

* Weight of petrol hedge trimmers: 6kg
* Time to cut hedge: 5 hours
* Number of cigarettes smoked: 8
* Estimated calorie usage: 2000
* Calories consumed: 1000
* Number of hawthorn… Continue

Hopefully I'm no so much older than everyone else here that some will recognise the title of this post is the same as the one written by Peter Seeger as a call for peace.
A common misconception is the second verse is 'where have all the children gone?', the actual line being 'where have all the young girls gone?'
So why on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon when all is peaceful and well has this song come to mind?
Memories of yesteryear, and especially child hood… Continue

I was wondering if anyone could help? I've been given this photo and would like to identify the plants and location. Any thoughts?
All entries welcome!

The newsflash of the evening was that the two American journalists had been pardoned in North Korea following the intervention of former US President Bill Clinton (Elvis minus the music). This has very little to do with gardening, I grant you, but it is relevant to LJN's disparate corps of bloggers - we're lucky, really, that we can post and discuss and forum-ise so freely without needing the intercession of an ex-President with a dubious reputation following his marital indiscretions (are we… Continue
