HATE it. I've even given up on the grass and hedges now, we have a bloke who comes once a fortnight in summer. Infuriates one of my neighbours, arsehole used to complain constantly about our scruffy hedges and now they're much nicer than his but I don't lift a finger. Haaa. I can tell he judges me for it too. "A real man should trim his own hedges!". No fanks buddy I'm going to pay this chap £20 to do it for me.

Great idea Nicky, love my garden, daffs, snowdrops, crocus and some other bulb I planted under the apple tree are out, Tulips in bud, the grass needs a cut, but it seems to rain every time I want to do it

Two bags of green waiting for the green collection to start

Scott would trim your hedges free of charge.

And he'd take the shavings home.

I found if you use the Google Lens tool on the Google photos app, or photos.google.com with pictures of plants and leaves on trees in your garden, it is good at identifying them.

This is the icon you press...

time to revive this little thread too


we've been working in the garden, we had to remove one giant conifer, because it was getting too close growing onto our fence and to avoid our fence getting broken by the conifer we better remove that giant one, and from few others, cut down couple branches nearest to all sides of the fence-work
