Any tips for badgers digging up gardens, or moles popping up hills ?

Never ending circles so far of using mud from molehill to fill holes the badgers have dug.

Garden is starting to resemble Somme battlefield

There are all sorts like stones in the water, ketchup on their food. It’s very much what works for you.

My dad gets the hosepipe out when we take our dog round, it just dilutes the pee.

A good hard kick in the nuts usually works a treat...........but I don't own a dog. It'd be my neighbours dog that's getting it if (or even he) ventures into the garden.

Only one neighbour. The others are brand new!

This is probably the only thing that works

Agree try and dilute it asap. The upside is that you will get some really good green patches in the autumn once the wet weather comes back

Grass isn't looking great. The heat has taken its toll and my garden is in direct sunlight most of the time.

Always comes back during autumn though so I expect no different this year. Taken the weather into account, its doing OK. Still greener than everyone elses on my street

Sometimes I think the odd dry spell helps with grass as it forces the roots down a bit........ or is that an urban myth
