    What's making these holes?

    The one's in our garden are trustworthy, but they have no links to money, just the food I put out for them :)To quote Ronny Barker "they dug another tunnel and put the soil down there" :biggrin:

    What's causing these brown patches in my lawn?

    You‘re welcome. Give it a feed then keep us updated. It can be a persistent problem.

    What's this in my lawn... and how do I get rid of it?!

    Look up liverwort. Caused by poor drainage and low light. You don’t need a weed killer for that, you need to improve the area for the grass plant.
