My bloody phone changes loads of words,then when I try to correct it changes them to a load of Ransome letters!!
I typed random
But what about the road to it? That's much more important.
We've been switched to Pantone 299 coloured bags, not Pantone 300C which is the County Blue.
Look, I didn't sleep well at all last night - I finally nodded off around 0300 am - so I think that in order to avoid a similar situation for me tonight, I'd be very grateful if you could indicate the shade of yellow from the chart below, or its nearest approximation.
I thank you...
We used to have some, for a short period only, that were somewhere between Butter & Lemon on that chart.
just as shitty as ever
I have a question for anyone with experience of digging a new driveway. Right up @MikeG 's street single file track, so to speak.
My neighbour, who I get on with extremely well, is probably going to extend his driveway sideways some time early next year. The lawns here are an odd layout. Not easy to explain, but you may have seen streets with open plan gardens. I mow the lawn in front of my house. Part of that lawn is technically on his land. This is not a problem in any way.
When he extends his driveway sideways, he is entitled to extend it right up to the dividing line between the two houses, still no problem there. My question is this - just say his driveway will be extended sideways by two metres, how much further will they dig up turf, top soil etc, to build/install the border? Do they need an extra foot or two feet or more? This is still not a problem, but I would like to know so that I can think about how many plants, and the shape of the border that will be on the edge of my garden, next to his driveway. If a digger has been used, I can prepare the ground for plants or turf.
I might returf it, at least the part that will be next to his cars, but there are other alternatives.
You might suggest I ask my neighbour, but I do not think he will know the answer.
What sort of drive is it? The "road" surface, I mean.
I think it will be cobbles rather than tarmac. He is redoing his current driveway at the same time.
Then it will need a kerb. It is the excavation for the base and haunching of that kerb which will extend outside of the line of the hardstanding. You should probably allow for 9 inches or so. A foot at most. These will be below-ground works, and when finished, you'll be able to plant hard-up to the back of the kerb, albeit with shallow rooted plants the closer you get to it.
As here. However I have enough discarded bubble wrap and expanded polystyrene to fill the bin already.
Bubble wrap is recyclable.
Only the air in it
From council website:
Bubble wrap - Black household waste bin
Mind I have approximately 100 broken down cardboard boxes as well which will have to be transported to the tip.
