Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best value chainsaw?
I’d recommend a professional heavy duty chainsaw for trees that large. If you’re a typical homeowner primarily doing light cutting then I recommend a bar length under 14”. For medium duty cutting then you’ll want a bar length between 16” to 20”.
What do I have to consider while tree felling?
- Be sure you know how to cause the tree to fall exactly where you want it to fall. Make sure there are no vines growing in the tree that tie it to other trees — this can be a real problem in getting the tree to fall in the right direction.
- Know and understand the dangers of operating a chainsaw. You can cut off an arm or leg faster than you might imagine — thankfully, I don’t have personal experience with this.
- If the tree is full of thorns (osage orange, locust, hawthorn, citrus, etc.), be sure you can get away from it very quickly when it starts to fall. Of course, this applies to any type of tree, but getting knocked by a flexible pine branch is not at all like encountering a locust branch up close and personal.
- Always wear protective clothing. Cover your eyes with safety glasses to avoid any tree fragments from hitting your eyes.
- Perform a good assessment of the situation so that you can be aware of all the hazards that can occur. This includes electrical hazards.
- Be on the lookout for dead branches that can just fall and injure you during the felling process.
Do you have or supply landscaping how to videos
We don’t but there are plenty of landscaping how to videos to be found online. Specifically when it comes to tree felling or cutting techniques. Many courses usually recommend you to buy chainsaw chaps and other safety gear. It is a balance between cost and frequency of use. If you will do this only one or 2 times, I’d hire someone in and let them take the risk, chainsaws can do you a dreadful injury if you don’t feel it about to happen.

Landscaping how to prevent weeds?
Generally weeds will always manifest in the garden or lawn. With weeds, the approach should be to tackle them as soon as they emerge. In a lawn pulling them out using a sharp spike that will uproot the root ball is ideal. In cultivated gardens weeds can be left to grow a little taller and pulled out by hand.
However practice mulching to minimize weeds. When the ground is fully covered by mulch weeds are denied sunlight for germination. Some weeds are as a result of an area not having been properly prepared. Any garden preparation should entain a thorough digging that removes all residue weeds.
Buy a good quality hoe, stainless steel if possible. Keep it sharp. If you hoe regularly, for a short time every second or third day, you should easily be able to control weeds. If you enjoy your garden you probably walk around it regularly anyway. Put your hoe where it’s easily accessible, take it with you as you walk around
If you have a bad weed problem you might have to resort to a glyphosate weedkiller, but this should only be used in extreme cases. I find that if you regularly skim the top off weeds with the hoe, they eventually die back.
