We have used copper around the top of our pots for a number of years now and it does work, most garden centres/diy shops sell stick on copper roll. This works well for the summer stuff which they really go to town on. There are hundreds of plants the little critters dont eat so do what we have done ...

Hi robj, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I do not know if the fence is in the "correct position" legally, as it was put up a number of years ago. All I know is that both sides agreed, at the time, that the positioning was correct and short of finding the original contractor and asking him there...

Many thanks for your replies. arborlad, to expand a little, there was no boundary fence many moons ago...only a couple of posts with wires strung between which were so rotten that they were lying on the ground. When the fence was erected the neighbours were consulted and a position was agreed. There...

Question

Hi all....I have a hypothetical question for you :) Someone has had a fence, that they put up and believed was on their side of the boundary, in their garden for at least 14 years. The sighting and ownership of said fence was never disputed by the then neighbours on the other side of it. If new neig...

It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach. One human hair can support 3 kg (6.6 lb). The average man's pen1s is three times the length of his thumb. Human thighbones are stronger than concrete. A woman's heart beats faster than a man's. There are about one trillion bact...

As shown on this forum on numerous occasions, the argument for/against owning cats is never ending. However, hijacking the topic to rail against cat owners doesn't answer the OPs question! elviskadawson ...as has been suggested perhaps you and the other neighbours could speak to the owner of the det...

Curlykaz....thanks for your lesson in electronics but there was no need as I know how an electric fence works :? However you are right, I am a responsible pet owner (although I don't recall mentioning that I have any animals/children!) I also have a garden full of wildlife (alive I may add) and as I...

Cat owners are irresponsible in my opinion, they think as long as you feed them once a day, you can just kick them out all day and night and not give a stuff to what they get up to. Lazy pet owners. Why the generalisation? We found that an electric fence worked a treat. ... to kill the many birds t...

As the dog wandered off the patio into the fish pond I thought I should fence it.
