The task ahead!

Sorry, I wasn't questioning it. It sounds quite feasible I suppose for a house of that vintage. :th: I've heard of horse hair sofas.

What colour to paint the fence???

I'm not sure I'd bother if you're planting in front anyway. Is it a standard paling fence or lap and cap? Do the neighbours have gardens yet? I know people…

How To Rid Of Neighbour's Cat Pooing In My Organic Garden

That's absolutely true, that's exactly what happens, that's what I've always understood... except the cats aren't behaving that way any more. :? It's really weird.

Not sure I follow your post? I thought you were going to use the green non-arsenic stuff? But anyway "arsenate" in copper chrome arsenate refers to the arsenic.
