    I need shade loving plants ideas because we have a small north facing garden and a 3 storey house. The garden doesn’t get a lot of direct sunlight but we want to line the edges with flowerbeds or something nice. I need ideas for types of flowers that grow in shade. Which types of shrubs or flowers would be best suited to thrive in low light?

    Can someone advise me on how easy it is to lay artificial grass myself? I would need to dig up a smallish back yard which is currently paved with slabs and install the fake grass in an area of roughly 15ft x 20ft. Or is it possible to lay artificial grass on concrete? I’m not worried about the cost for artificial grass so much but is it possible to complete the job on my own in a day and what's the best way do that?

    Need to cut an old oak tree down at the back of our property but my neighbour has told me they think the tree is protected with a Tree Preservation Order and can’t be felled. How do I find out if the tree can be cut down?

    While it is relatively dry I want to sort out my garden drainage. I have a raised lawn, south facing but it never seems to dry out. People have mentioned french drains and sand but not sure of the best course of action. Any help would be great. Thank you

    Hello, I got some timber decking installed and treated in 2015 and was given a 10 year guarantee. After some issues I tried to get in touch with the installer and have found that they have gone into liquidation. Is there anything that can be done in this situation? I'm not even sure where to start?
