    This is a repost since the last time I asked this it got no replies. I live in a high density housing area in a Victorian terraced house. There s virtually no gardens where I am, it s virtually all just concreted back yards. But I do have a small garden, it s about the size of two parking places, it s mostly lawn but has bushes round the edge. The problem is all the local cats come to use it as their toilet, & most of them don t bury their pooh. I don t mind the cats visiting my garden, but is there something I can do to stop them poohing in it? Maybe like spraying areas with lemon juice or vinegar - or anything else? Any advice welcomed. Thank you.

  • What would you do?

    I signed up for a lawn mowing service to mow my lawn weekly. I went with a company that offered automatic payment. They told me that it would be 35$ a week for my lawn mowing.

The first automatic payment was 65$. Then they told me a 25$ credit would be applied the following week. So for the past 2 months my weekly charge has been 10$! What would you do. Inform them or leave it alone and keep on receiving 10$ mowings.

  • Which is true? that you should keep all leaves off a lawn while new seed is germinating or leaves help the seeds germinate?

    Best answer: I think the leaves would initially help. They would keep the seeds damp. If they are small leaves, then the grass might grow between and around them. However, large leaves would block the light and the grass would die.

  • Neighbor lady copies everything I do. She is decades older than me.?

    Got a new bike and she say me out riding. The next week she has a bike riding too. Never saw that before. Got the driveway cleaned, then she does hers. Planted new grass and I look up, she's there asking what am I doing? Duh! Planting grass seed. Guess what-the next day she is and even got lawn care. ... show more
    Got a new bike and she say me out riding. The next week she has a bike riding too. Never saw that before. Got the driveway cleaned, then she does hers. Planted new grass and I look up, she's there asking what am I doing? Duh! Planting grass seed. Guess what-the next day she is and even got lawn care. Planted new bushes and flowers. She does the same. You get the idea. I could go on and on. There's a lot more. She always asks where I bought things if I got something new. OK-the thing is that now I truthfully find it annoying- like a tick I want to pluck off me. A parasite!! Why in the world do people act like this and they aren't even embarrassed about it? I would be. I would think others would thing I'm a moron with no brain of my own. Ideas-have you experienced this?

  • How much full sun can hydrangeas tolerate?

    Best answer: That doesn't sound like too much sun, but it can be a sign of lack of water. Try watering them deeply and regularly and see what that does. You could also try some fertiliser. Young plants do have small root systems and need all the help they can get. As they get older they do indeed become more... show more

    Young plants do have small root systems and need all the help they can get. As they get older they do indeed become more resilient.

    It also depends on the climate wherever you are. Her we are deep into autumn and the hydrangeas are stopping. We tend to leave the dead heads on over winter to help protect the new shoots forming underneath from frost and only deadhead in spring when the frosts have gone and the plants are back in full swing again.

  • Rotting tree limb stub?

    Best answer: Concrete won't help...in fact it will make things worse, Water will eventually seep around the concrete and make the rot worse. Just cut the rot out of the tree. Since the existing stub is "near flush", you may need to cut a little bit into the trunk. Maybe even a giant "C" shaped cut. ... show more
    Best answer: Concrete won't help...in fact it will make things worse, Water will eventually seep around the concrete and make the rot worse. Just cut the rot out of the tree. Since the existing stub is "near flush", you may need to cut a little bit into the trunk. Maybe even a giant "C" shaped cut. That's okay, the tree will survive. Just be sure that this time you shape the wound so it can't hold water. It's not totally necessary, but if you feel better about it, you can treat the new wound with a commercial tree sealing compound. A cheaper (under $5) alternative is to buy a wax toilet seal at the hardware store and use a spatula to spread the wax on the wounded area.

  • How to stop my marigold sprouts from wilting?

    Best answer: You're watering them far too often (this seems to be a very common mistake of people new to raising plants). Seedlings don't need much water. Water them only once the surface has dried out, and even then don't give them much. Also, if you have some sort of clear plastic cover over them, remove it once... show more
    Best answer: You're watering them far too often (this seems to be a very common mistake of people new to raising plants). Seedlings don't need much water. Water them only once the surface has dried out, and even then don't give them much.
    Also, if you have some sort of clear plastic cover over them, remove it once the seedlings have appeared. You only need the extra heat to germinate them in the first place. Once they actually start growing, it's not necessary, and the extra humidity inside it only encourages fungi which causes them to rot.

  • When you cut off a branch from a tree, does it grow back?

    Best answer: Not from where it was cut off, if that's what you mean. You may get offshoots from near the stump, though.
