If you see the state of my garden, you will think what I have been up to??? Very sad! Even after I cleared the mess, I had two planter beds and now they are covered with bolted vegs and stinging nettles. I don't even go there .. Need a handyman like you! Or concreting the whole lot!Hi,
Don't you dare alp.
Kind regards, Colin.
Excellent advice Sheal and I for one fully endorse it. I never ever thought I'd even attempt to dig our rear garden over because it's so steep and full of roots and stones; at one time I considered buying an Howard rotavator but friends who use one of these rotavators on their allotment convinced me it would be too dangerous; the roots too would overpower it.
Very nice of you to cheer me up. I'm thinking of hibernating myself. Hope I can get the job and do something worthwhile.
I know I should do that and should post so many off topic threads here and then be told that I don't understand the difference among the structure of the site. I will make this a wish and hopefully you won't see me posting every day. You know Colin, people now favour no dig as they think digging disturbs soil and damage the bacteria and ecology of the soil structure. The damage could be quite bad. So after clearing up, you can just mulch and mulch and mulch and save hurting your arms and legs.. I think I could start a topic dig or no dig.. That way, I wouldn't be off topic.Hi,
Cover your arms; legs and hands alp and show the nettles who is boss; nettles pull out easily but heavy gloves are needed; I always have a dozen pair of rigger gloves in stock and these gloves are perfect for such work. How big is the area you want to clear alp? I think though such a job is now best left until next springtime? Good luck.
Kind regards, Colin.
