    Hello, can anyone advise me on painting on decks please. I had my decking done last year and this year I wanted to paint. Normally, I use Ronseal Fence paint on my fences, Dark wood in colour. Therefore, I painted my fence with it and used the same one on my decking. I did this so all looks the same, Dark wood in colour. As I was clearing the paints after finishing the whole project, I realised on the tin that not to be used on decks. I have googled it since then and basically I have done a mistake in doing this without realising. Therefore, can anyone advise please if I need to buy another product and which brand to use on top of the paint I have already used so it protects my decking? Thank you for the time in reading and advising.

    Do you always need to add top soil when laying new turf down? Or is it only when you need to level out the area?

    There are partially and fully grown plants in my garden. All was going well but now all of a sudden they are wilting. Do you know what might be causing this problem? How can I fix it? Why would they grow fine and then start wilting at this stage? What signs should I look out for in the future that this problem may still be present to some degree or another?

    Can some of the products used to treat decking to maintain it actually prove harmful? Can this be the case? How can I avoid this or at least reduce the risk? Are some products better to use than others? Thanks in advance.

    I currently have concrete fencing and we recently took lots of trees down from an old pond. This now has created privacy issues. Is there anything that can be done to make the current fence taller on a low budget? I don’t want to replace the fence just as it’s a solid concrete fence.
