    If you have that time on your hands, wombling at adsa would probably help a lot. People have been known not to need to spend any/much money on grocery's all month.

    Morning all

    Think I need to get some stuff to put on my fence. Anyone know of any good deals please and thanks in advance
    Seen some on Wilko's site http://www.wilko.com/all-exterior-paint/wilko-timbercare-country-brown-5l/invt/0074038
    Anyone know how good that is? Our fence is old. Just needs some colour put back in it lol. Im loathe to change it as it still seems sturdy and knowing my luck if I changed them the new one will collapse at the next hurricane
    too

    I'm normally a bit OCD when it comes to doing things like this - but as it's such a huge task, I'm wondering if it would be acceptable to just paint the fence around the outlines of the established bushes and shrubs. I do realise that the bits of fence behind the bushes would be untreated - but it's really for aesthetic purposes when the time comes for my wife to sell the house
