    I am looking to have a new path across a pebble area in my garden and currently I am considering block paving and pattern imprinted concrete. Does anyone have some advice or past experience with these over a longer period of time? Ideally, it should be a long-lasting solution to be kept for several years to come. I have heard that imprinted concrete can crack and split over time due to use and erosion – is this the case, and if so, are there any reasonable preventative measures I could take?

    Hello, Does anyone know if it is okay to use Ronseal’s fence paint on decking? They’re both for wood and are pretty similar, but I don’t want to risk ruining my decking. Any advice would be great thanks! Greg

    What is the usual cost for a gardener to re-turf a lawn? I am considering getting my lawns re-turfed soon; Front - 3m x 3.5m Back - 3.7m x 5.5m Would anyone be able to give an estimate for these lawns to be re-turfed of these sizes? Or an approximate guide to estimate the costs involved?

    In my garden I have some paving slabs, laid a few years ago, which have become increasingly uneven since then. The paving itself seems fine apart from some wearing around the edges. Does anyone know why this happens or how it could be fixed easily? Or even, if anyone knows how I can prevent this happening again in future? I have been told that adding ‘sharp sand’ beneath the slabs to fill beneath can help even it – or would it be best to re-lay the slabs with some new sand underneath? Thanks, Mo

    Hello all, We are looking to have a patio-esque area in our garden by using slabs. We don’t know if we are best to use paving on these areas as they are or whether we should have a cement layer applied for the area. If anyone has any recommendation or experience with this type of thing, please let us know. Thanks!

    Hello all, I need some advice for how many bags of postcrete I will need for a new fence I will be putting up. The posts themselves will be 2.4m wooden posts for panels that are 1.8m by 1.8m. The posts will be put in soft and sandy soil. Can anyone give me an idea of what the bag to post ratio would be? Many Thanks, Bill
