My own cat craps then rips my lawn to shreds but only does it after it's rained as it washes away the cat repellent. I'm not a pet lover but i do tolerate the wife's rabbits.

My current problem is pigeons. I cut off most of the overhanging branches over the winter but there was one i couldn't reach, and that's the branch they are sitting on overnight, causing this mess to my kids area....

Looks like i'll have to get someone in to lop the branch off. It's not a huge branch but it must be 40 feet up.

i put the plum slate down for easy maintenance so i have 3 tonnes of the stuff 5 large beds but you just don't know if the soil underneath needs a watering !
Poloticians and nappies should both be changed regularly for the same reason !
