Can anyone tell us what restrictions or regulations there are about putting up a garden shed of less than 3m2? Are there any permissions or declarations involved or, as it is so small can we just put it up? We have a building plot with CdU and are awaiting Permis de Construire. Any advice gratefully received. The shed we have seen is metal & would only be used to store garden tools between visits. JanTydying to move but no house built yet

Does anyone know the meaning of being left white pampas grass,outside ones door? Is it a local ritual,or possibly witch craft?Or maybe something more sinister,I know that theres a man in Guilliers called Dave who has lots in his garden. I have contacted Alan Titchsmarsh,he seems to think it's a sign of virility?Tony
We’re in the process of shipping an MFI kitchen out over several car trips. It was designed at MFI Orpington to cover about three 3 Metre wall of our cuisine, and incorporate the original sink although there may be some bodging to make that bit work. My concern is that I can’t see it ever getting finished – I took a whole week to put a wardrobe and cupboards in our UK bedroom, a friend of mine who works from his office at home took 18 months to fit his kitchen! Just testing the water at the moment but are there any French artisans with experience of putting these systems together? Not many I would think as the French don’t generally have fitted kitchens.Ped & Caz

I've been here before. Creating a new garden from scratch. Waiting 3/4 years for everything to mature .. and then had to leave it !! But now I really am getting old and want to see the benefit NOW (or soon !) The house I have just bought has a "virgin" garden. I'm pretty desperate (see posting about Bamboo Roll Hedging).. to get something up and running ASAP along the two sides to give me some privacy. I can't wait (with stamping of the foot!) three years !!! Does anyone have any mature shrubs to sell... how many ... well the estimate from a Paysagiste is 76 shrubs (37ml height?) So,if you are overgrown with small trees or anything suitable .... I'm buying !!! Would really welcome some input from anyone who has had a similar problem! Cheers

My toilet got blocked on Saturday evening. I managed to get it to work again and yesterday it seemed OK but this morning it has happened again.Is it possible to buy a chemical or something to put down the toilet to try and clear the blockage or do I need to call out a plumber. Has anyone had a fosse emptied recently and if so how much did it cost. My Fosse is below the ground with no visible access,it is covered up.I will obviously have to dig down to locate it. How deep are they normally? Help please.
How important is it to be able to advertise your gite with a swimming pool. I am trying to establish if it is worth the cost of putting in a swimming pool in the garden of the gite we are renting out this summer. It seems to me that it is only cost effective if you increase your bookings. I would be interested in your comments and experiences.
