    New laws on woodburners

    Reason: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/feb/01/pollutionwatch-wood-burning-worsening-uk-air-quality If on mains gas for the majority of people why do you need to burn wood apart from the stove look pretty or be trendy. Peoples health shouldn't be damages so someone can have a fire as a fashion Lifestyle Accessory

    New laws on woodburners

    I think they should be banned/restricted in cities if the house is on a mains gas supply.

    Recommendations for larger strimmer

    Worst thing iv'e used for vibes is karcher pressure washers. That Kawasaki Petrol looks good 2.0kw @ 6kg http://store.cobragarden.co.uk/brushcutters/cobra-bc530k-petrol-powered-53cc-bike-handle-brushcutter.html alot ligther than stihl of same power? 6kg seems really light I dontt like the FS 460 much as so heavy to use doinh a full day strimming

    Recommendations for larger strimmer

    Anyone tried the new MM4 makitas? 4 strokes seem heavier for less power.... I have a old 2 stroke makita rbc3101 & its the best strimmer iv'e used prefer it compared to similar sized hondas & stihl iv'e also used. Will go though smaller diameter brambles with the bump head line but not old growth or blackthorn or gorse.

    lawn feed and weed

    I hate thoose franchise companies that do this they charge the homeownwe £50 a month etc for less than 10 minutes work spraying the lawn. I like moss & daisys in lawns rather than monoculture unnatural looking grass.
