I don't like doing that but I plead extenuating circumstances, to wit and viz.:
about 2 months ago our small gulag experienced a power cut which lasted all night, came on at 6 am and went off again for the whole of the following night. Much excitement !! Electrical power company vans (17 at the last count) and crews to match.
So, as it happens right next to the wee cave is the dedicated little power sub-station. The Men in the end decided to dig down three feet inside the sub-station fence to change a spark plug or something. Well, when you dig an extremely large hole the soil has to go somewhere, and it went on my lawn .
All was returned to its former condition and the vans sped off. Job done.
So, I find myself with a rich assortment of thistles, creeping thingies, dandies, u-name-it which have erupted for the second time down a channel of bare ground about 6 inches wide 'twixt lawn and electric fence (!).
A little research led me to the long-term solution and the nub and the gist of this tale is that I have sprayed again and then sown the channel with ordinary salt .
I await the outcome ....... and the morale of this story is that you never know what you might be starting when you dig a hole.
Who should I sue ??
