Would be most grateful for any advice on where to buy and the best method of fixing composite decking.  Also which make is regarded as being good value for money. I have so far been advised not to buy the hollow decking, it is prone to impact damage, but to buy a solid decking containing between 50 and 65% wood which is stronger and less likely to warp or look too 'plasticy'. I have read a number of reviews on the french websites.  The reviewers generally do not have many positive comments about the various clip fixings.  I would rather not drill and screw the boards if I can help it but if the other fixings, which do look a bit fiddly, are not man enough for the job, especially for steps, then may be I should. Any advice would be appreciated especially from anyone who has used this material.  Thanks in advance.

I have a detached holiday house near Cours-de-Pile just outside Bergerac. There is an area of lawn approx 30 x 60 metres including the house footprint and the drive, which has not been cut since early November. I had intended to visit this week to do a bit of maintenance work but, for obvious reasons, this has been postponed. Could anyone recommend someone, who would be able to cut the lawn and, if so, could you let me have contact details?David CheadleBathUK

Hi Could I have your help in finding someone who I could hire a petrol strimmer from please. Although if there is someone out there who can repair gardening equipment it would be handy too as i have a strimmer which requires a new head attachment.  Just a bought a house in 33220 Saint-Avit-Saint Nazaire and there are certain areas on the land that are really uneven and a strimmer is the only thing that may work there.  Thank youImtiaz

I have had an Orange internet connection using my laptop and a livebox for about 10 years and it is time to replace the laptop and install the internet connection onto the new laptop. I still have the original installation disk and wonder if it would be possible to use it with the new laptop. It not should I ask Orange for a new disk or is it possible to download the current software from the internet?

Hi All,As a recent mover to France, we had a SOSH Phone/ADSL package set up i.e the normal 19.99 euro option.I bought both a cabled Alcatel Temporis 10 and a Pansonic DECT phone pack.We have only tried the Alcatel so far, but it only seems to work (i.e dial tone) when plugged directly into the livebox.Is this because we have unwittingly just bought an ADSL connection and the livebox adds the phone component? Is there anyway of getting the fixed phone working at the same time as the other phone? i.e both plugged in and both able to make calls/receive them - although clearly only one at a time.Otherwise quite limiting .....Thanks

We have just bought a property near villeneuve sur lot. We are need to change a number of wooden french doors. We will be replacing them with white pvc equivalent doors as a number of the windows had been replaced with white pvc by the previous owner. Any suggestions as to where to source french doors in the Lot area. The french doors have georgian bars on them.

We have an overhead power cable running across our land that feeds our property and carries on to our neighbour. It was damaged this winter during the storms so Enedis want to install some extra poles along the line to make it stronger. They've sent us a plan + description of what work they intend to undertake & asked us to sign a contract (sample here on their website file:///C:/Users/x/Downloads/Convention_Enedis-annexe.pdf). We are off grid so don't actually have the electricity connected but don't have a problem with the extra poles if it's going to make the line more reliable for our neighbour. However we are uncomfortable with some of the terms in the contract especially those concerning 'obligations du propriétaire'. Do we need to sign this contract? Can we pen through the parts we are not happy with! Any advice would be much appreciated.
