    Curved Garden Deck

    Yeah, I did wonder about that. Not sure I would want to try it out on someone elses deck tho'. Might have a go on my own when I get round to doing it. Recently finnished a 85 square meter hardwood deck. Not sure that method would have worked so well with that.

    I would say best way would be to take it up, re-lay on concrete and re-point it with 3:1, Builders sand : Cement. Then you can power wash to your hearts content.

    Keeping the cats in the garden

    If you let them out they will leave the garden, whatever you do to try to stop them. As far as i am aware 8' is the max height of fence you would be allowed to erect and my cats can get up that height without so much as breaking stride. Sorry I cant be more help. Cats are never ours, if they...

    Best advice to cure flooding garden

    Dont mean to butt in but if you bought the drians yourself and did the work yourself, then it probably wouldnt work out very different in price. Of course it would depend where you ran the drains. If they purely went along the fence on the offending side of the garden then it wouldnt be too...

    Parking (Dropped Curb)

    Sorry perhaps i didnt make it clear. What I meant was that if it bothers people that a dropped curb means two spaces then why dont they get a dropped curb themselves and have two spaces :?:

    Parking (Dropped Curb)

    Firstly, other residents are quite free to get themselves a drop curb and therefore have an allocated space, plus many driveways will take more than one car which frees up extra space for other residents. Very fair in my opinion!
