7 Differences Between Residential Cabins and Brick Houses

In CategoryTim Whitcombe
ByGardenAdvice Tim Whitcombe

It can be difficult to decide what type of home fits you best. Below, I will show you 7 differences between residential cabins and brick houses.

1 Appearance

This seems like a no brainer. However, you want to purchase a home you find aesthetically pleasing. Also, think about the landscaping and décor potential. You want to find a home you would like to show off. So, do you like the look of residential cabins or brick houses best?


2 Sturdiness

Both brick and wood are sturdy. I tried to find information on what choice was best, but there are pros and cons to both. For example, wood can get gross if not adequately protected from water. You need to be applying product once every 3-5 years in order to keep water from ruining your wood. However, brick is vulnerable to mold. I once heard residential cabins can withstand hurricane force winds!


3 Climate

Where do you live? Think about your weather. Is it warm most of the time? If so, a brick home would be your best bet. However, brick is susceptible to certain bad parts of the warmer climate, such as contending with vines. Some other things that break this type of material down are silt and erosion. So, if you live in a climate with a lot of rain and pounding wind, brick may not be the best choice for you.


4 Efficiency

Are you building your own home? If so, there are some benefits to choosing a residential cabin over a brick house. First, building with wood is cheaper than building with brick. In addition, building a residential cabin takes less time than a brick home. So, if you are on a time or budget crunch for your build, the most efficient choice is the cabin.


5 Environment

Residential cabins are considered green homes. In addition, living in a wooden structure can reduce your footprint by lowering your heating and air conditioning bills. Wood is a great insulator. Although brick is not too shabby of an insulator itself, it is not considered green. However, if you add insulation to your cabin it is no longer a 100% green home since insulation is not considered environmentally friendly.  


6 Fire Resistance

Fun fact: logs like these https://www.quick-garden.co.uk/log-cabins.html are natural flame-retardants! How? The char that forms in the presence of fire stops oxygen flow to the remainder of the log. In case of a fire, logs will maintain their integrity far longer than other materials. Not only do the logs slow fires, so does the design. Even after the fire, logs can be more easily restored.


7 Ease of Finding

Residential cabins are relatively new to the real estate scene. In addition, they only recently became popular. Therefore, there are less of these structures. Since there are less residential cabins than brick houses, it is more difficult and potentially more expensive to purchase a residential cabin. Less cabins equals more demand. More demand equals higher prices. Depending where you live, it may be cheaper to build your own.

How to Fix the 5 Most Common Lawn Problems After Cold Winter

In CategoryTim Whitcombe
ByGardenAdvice Tim Whitcombe

The end of the winter season is a particularly important time for your lawn. While the temperatures are starting to warm up, you still have to deal with any lawn damage brought by the last season. Here, we discuss how to fix the 5 most common lawn problems after cold winter.


Vole Damage

Also known as meadow mice, voles usually range between four and six inches in length. These small rodents have a brown and grayish color.  During winter, voles will go underneath the snow in your lawn to hide from their predators. Here, they will consume not only the grass blades but also the established root systems.

Some homeowners tend to blame moles when they see rodent trails in their lawn during the winter. However, this is a mistake since moles are on their dormant period at this time. Moreover, moles make their tunnels beneath the soil surface. In contrast, voles create runways that severely affect the health of your lawn grass.

Thankfully, the arrival of warm temperatures in spring will naturally help the grass lawn recover. However, areas that were severely damaged would benefit from overseeding. For a preventive solution, do mow your lawn while the grass is still in their active period. Typically, the grass will switch to a dormant stage in the fall season. The last mowing operation before this must ensure that the grass blades are just two inches from the soil surface.


Snow Mold

As the snow disappears from your lawn, any damages brought about by the snow mold disease will become apparent. There are two types of the disease: gray snow mold and pink snow mold. The former is also known as the Typhula blight and it only damages the grass blades.

On the other hand, the pink type or the Fusarium patch is more damaging. Apart from harming the grass blades, the pink snow mold will affect both the root systems and the grass crowns. If you ignore the disease, it will keep on damaging your lawn even until the summer season.

To address the problem, rake the affected the areas to speed up the rate of the snow mold drying out. Get rid of thatch layers that are thicker than half an inch once the lawn is sufficiently dry and you’ve mowed it at least twice.

Use a short mowing height as long as the mold is still developing. Shorter grass will have a lesser capacity to retain moisture that encourages fungal growth. Lastly, overseed the bare patches and continue to build a healthy lawn.

Here is a video of snow mold treatment:



Winter Desiccation

Desiccation is primarily caused by factors such as freezing temperatures, strong winds, and inadequate soil moisture. Winter desiccation will lead to the excessive loss of moisture for your lawn grass. The root systems should normally be able to replace this, but desiccation increases the rate of loss. Afterward, discoloration occurs and the grass crowns begin to perish.

The first solution is to deeply water your lawn — enough to reach the first 12 to 18 inches below the soil surface. Placing a layer of organic mulch will also help the grass retain moisture. Regularly check the moisture level as the spring season arrives and add more water if the rainfall isn’t enough.


Crown Hydration

Crown hydration occurs when a sudden and extreme dip in temperature follows a warm period. Lawn grass that has accumulated enough water before they are exposed to sudden frost will have their crowns damaged. One solution to crown hydration is to improve the soil drainage to help the grass get rid of water when it turns cold again. Moreover, the affected areas should be aerated, top-dressed, and overseeded.


Broadleaf Weed Infestation

Finally, broadleaf weeds can take over the lawn during winter as the grass is in a dormant period. Some of these weeds include cudweed, thistles, clover, and dandelions. Thankfully, these weeds can be removed using selective herbicide. If the affected area is small, you can also remove them by hand. Include the roots so they won’t grow again.

In conclusion, the winter season can severely affect your lawn. However, you can it recover if you know the cause. If the area is too damaged, overseeding or reseeding will help bring back lush grass growth. We hope that our guide helped you improve the health of your lawn.

How to successfully pest-proof your decking

In CategoryTim Whitcombe
ByGardenAdvice Tim Whitcombe

Everybody loves spending time in their garden during the summer — but when we neglect our outdoor spaces during the colder months, it could become the hibernation spot for those unwanted pests.

Our decking is lovely to look at, but the shelter beneath can become the main attraction to pests who are looking for a warmer, more stable location. In London, more than 100 rodent complaints are made every day. Although this doesn’t mean that you’re at risk, it’s worth making a few quick and simple preparations to stop potential pests from making your garden their homes.     

We’ve teamed up with Arbordeck, providers of composite decking boards, to bring you some top tips and tricks for keeping those rats and mice far from our gardens.



Think like a pest — what would attract you to decking in a garden? Pests, such as rats and mice, will scout out places before deciding on where to settle down, so try and make your decking as uninhabitable as possible.

We’re all guilty of leaving leftover food outdoors, but it’s essential that you get out of the habit — this will attract all types of pests, so you must make sure that you dispose of it properly and ensure that your bin is tight shut. If you have a get-together on your decking, make sure you thoroughly clear up and clean the decking so that no sauces or dropped food remain which could entice rodents and other critters. Remember; rats, mice and hedgehogs will also eat birdfeed, so make sure to opt for a birdfeeder that isn’t placed on the floor or a table and put it away from your decking.

Hedges and long grass can provide shelter for pests, so you must keep on top of your garden maintenance. If your main pest problem is birds, movement is a great deterrent. Try hanging something that moves — like a wind chime or wind spinner — to help prevent birds from making a mess on your decking.  


Closing the gaps

After you’ve followed our previous guidelines, it’s probably best to block off your decking completely. Pests won’t be able to make a home under your decked areas if they can’t get in to begin with, so investing in extra materials to create a barrier is worth it.

Beneath a decking is the ideal living space for pests — shelter and warmth, they’ll never want to leave. To stop this happening, use wood, mesh or chicken wire and run it along the entire edge of your decking between the boards and the ground. If you’re worried that this will ruin your decking’s aesthetic appeal, you can install a wooden trellis and have the mesh running behind it. Then, arrange potted plants or flowerbeds around your decking to mask the mesh further.

Remember that rats and mice can push themselves through gaps (as small as half an inch), so ensure your decked is sealed correctly.



Woodworm love wood decking. Unless you have composite decking that doesn’t rot, you might want to take steps to prevent this particularly unpopular garden pest.

There are three kinds of woodworm in the UK. The common furniture beetle is usually what people mean when they say ‘woodworm’, but the house longhorn and deathwatch beetles are far more destructive — although thankfully rarer.

To prevent woodworm in your decking and outdoor furniture, try to keep the wood dry. This might be difficult for large areas like your decking, but your tables and chairs should be relatively safe under a waterproof cover. Sealing your wood with varnish is a good shout, too. This creates a barrier that prevents female wood-boring beetles from laying eggs in the pores of the wood.

Are you already a victim of infestation? If you can see small holes across your decking and furnishings — these are usually in a cluster and often about 1mm wide — there might be woodworm present. Although this is treatable, you first need to identify which type of woodworm is doing the damage, so it might be worth seeking professional advice. Common furniture beetle problems can be treated yourself using products that you can buy online. However, if the culprits are house longhorn or deathwatch beetles, you may need to treat by injection.


Capturing the culprits

Pests are cleverer than we think. If you already have pests in the garden and need help getting rid of them, you could consider using non-lethal traps or scent repellents.

It’s always worth knowing that rodents dislike the smell of hot spices, as well as peppermint and garlic. Plant a peppermint tree around the edges of your decking or sprinkle cayenne around potential entry points to deter vermin from nesting. Of course, there are also plenty of commercial rat and mice repellents you can buy that will work to keep pests at bay.

How about using non-lethal traps to capture those pests? But forget cheese; sweet treats work best to lure mice. Place these around your decking and make sure to release the rodent at least one mile from your home once caught. If you prefer, buy an ultrasonic pest repellent. Compact and discreet, these devices are ideal for placing by your decking and emit high-frequency sound waves that rodents can’t stand — and we can’t hear.

If you prepare in advance, ensuring that your garden space is pest-free is achievable!








Guide Lawn Cleaning Lawn Properly

In CategoryTim Whitcombe
ByGardenAdvice Tim Whitcombe

Cleaning the lawn might seem like a tedious task, but it can be done with efficiency if you know exactly what to do. You can save time and energy by using the right tools and products. Here are some tips on cleaning the lawn properly.

Gather the Debris

Look at your lawn and gather all the debris that you can find. These include twigs, branches, dry leaves, rocks, and any plastic or metallic items. You can use a rake to place the lawn debris to the side. Likewise, you can get a lawn sweeper if there is too much to clean. This piece of equipment quickly collects small lawn debris and places them inside a hopper.

To choose a good lawn sweeper, you can read more the reviews article on AGreenHand blog.


Debris that can be composted should be separated from those that can’t be composted. Thus, you will have a compost pile as you clean your lawn. Furthermore, check your lawn for any wastes left by pets and wild animals. Instead of placing animal waste in the garbage bin where you throw every other product, you should have another bin. You can reduce the bad odor in your lawn and in the general rubbish bin if you dedicate one separate bin for animal waste.


Remove Weeds

Regardless of the season, pesky weeds will find their way to wreak havoc on your lawn. Failure to clean these away can lead to your lawn grass competing with the weeds for nutrition. Instead of just cutting them in half, it’s best to completely remove the weeds. Dig into the soil and ensure that the root systems are also taken away.


If it gets too problematic, you can use herbicide. Carefully follow the instructions on the package label. Ideally, herbicides should be sued when the temperature ranges from 50 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. If it rains afterward, conduct a repeat application once ten days have passed.

Here is a video of removing weeds:



Mow the Lawn

Your lawn will look tidy if you keep the grass short. However, don’t mow your lawn yet if you used herbicide. Wait for at least days. Cool-season grasses like fine fescue and perennial ryegrass need to be cut down to just three and a half inches during summer. When it’s spring or fall, the grass blades shouldn’t exceed a height ranging from two and a half to three inches.


On the other hand, warm-season grass varieties like bahiagrass and zoysiagrass should just be between one and two inches in height. Don’t forget to collect the lawn clippings either for disposal or for mulching.


Overall, keeping your lawn clean involves removing debris and weeds alike. Utilize the tools you have for clearing away the debris: rakes, leaf blowers, lawn sweepers. Likewise, exercise great caution if you have to apply herbicide to your lawn. Lastly, mow your lawn and don’t forget to use the clippings for mulching to improve the health of your lawn.


We hope that our quick guide will help you in maintaining the cleanliness of your lawn. If you have any queries, do send us a comment.

The Things You Need to Know Before Building a Fence

In CategoryGarden Build, Tim Whitcombe
ByGardenAdvice Tim Whitcombe

Having fencing in your garden is really beneficial, but before you get started on building your fence, there are a few important things you need to do. Whilst building a fence is a fairly straightforward process, if you don’t do some key preparation beforehand you could really find yourself struggling.


Know the Purpose

When you decide to add a fence to the garden, there’s more often than not a reason behind you doing so. Whether it’s to keep the dog in the garden, keep the neighbors from peering into your garden on a sunny afternoon, or simply add a little privacy to your home, you need to know why you’re adding the fence to ensure you’re doing it in the best way. A prime example of this would be adding a strong, durable fence to keep your dog inside. This fence would need to be high enough for them to not be able to jump over, whilst also being completely secure with no gaps in any of the paneling. Similarly, if you only need to keep the garden separate from your neighbors, but don’t mind it being lower than normal, you may want to opt for a traditional picket fence to add to the aesthetics of the garden over the practical elements.

Research First

Before you invest your money in some fencing from the local timber merchants or garden centre, you want to be sure you’re getting the right thing. There are so many different types of fencing, so you need to do some research to find out what is available to you and what will work best in your garden. You can also research prices to find the best cost in your area, as you may find that one retailer is selling the panels for slightly cheaper, when the material itself is just as good quality wise.

Select a Material

Deciding on the right material for your fencing can be challenging, especially if you don’t know the difference between the options you have. Have a think of which fencing style is going to suit your garden and your needs best, as this will then help you to find a material that looks right, whilst meeting the needs you have at the same time. Investing your money in some treated timber is going to ensure you have durable, high-quality materials that are guaranteed to stand heavy weather conditions for many years to come. Whereas, having a small painted fence may result in cracked or faded paint that may need frequent maintenance after the heavy weather has been.

Be Considerate

Whilst introducing fencing to your garden is going to really boost the safety, privacy and security, you don’t know how it’s going to look to your neighbors. Many people go ahead and add fencing to the garden without giving their neighbors the heads up, and this can often cause an issue or two. By consulting your neighbor and just letting them know your plans, they can prepare for their garden to look different too. They may even want to add a little input to help make the fencing work for both gardens. At the end of the day, you share this area with your neighbour, so you want to be considerate and let them know what’s going on out of respect and kindness.
