I have a small rectangular patch with only soil in a long deep raised bed at the end, dotted near the patio door will be planters, also in a corner a water feature surrounded by planters and logs. with no outdoor tap and being disabled, can you get a simple thread system kit which could give a slow watering to my garden/patch areas and yet not waste precious water as i like to be eco friendly and all that sort of thing.
How successful would the Weed wand be on grass seedlings in a gravel driveway ? i know that damaged grass grows again from the roots, so would burning the surface prevent regrowth ?

Hi Gerry, I have a steep bank all around the back of our house. I have planted a beech hedge on top of the bank and am now looking for suitable plants or creepers to sow on top that might grow down to screen off the bank and prevent weeds/grasses from taking hold or alternatively something to sow at the bottom that may climb up. The bank is 8 to 10 feed high so apart from about a foot of topsoil on the top most of the rest of the depth is gravelly. Can you recommend something suitable and possibly fast growing. Thanks.
we have builders in at the moment extending our patio it will be lovely but they have made the garden a mess in a few words no more grass its all lumpy and humpy how do we get it back into shape we are only garden novices weve a lot too learn
