  2. I’ve found Alsatian too small and not very protective also can be bribed with food my two big dogs one is 11 stone the other nearly 14 backed up by very excitable labradors and terriers very imposing and my yard is at home always a help if someone is around

  6. I run a old parmenter contractor on my alpine manages it no problems
  7. I try for 300 MM minimum very well compacted, sheeps foot roller is ideal, timing is crucial clay needs to be dry enough to not rut but wet enough to squeeze tight you cannot over compact the clay. Also dig a cut of trench round the outside of the pond 600 MM deeper than the pond base excavate soil then back fill and compact to cut land drains and stop leaks from old roots etc.
  8. My local council did this to me a while back felled a hedge obviously on my land (they had to climb over a wall to get to it) i recorded all my time on the phone and computer, took many pictures from every angle, and presented them with a bill for the cost of replacement and my time they ignored my first attempt but paid up when sent a solicitors letter, they paid for the letter as well
