As I'm off for two months each summer, I end up with a long list of jobs. The one I do every year, which I really dislike is painting the garden fence, what you see here plus another 15 or so panels. Anyway finished it today:D
What jobs/chores do you really not enjoy?

I did 9 panels in a day a few weeks ago.

Rewarding to finish.

Hate gardening with a passion, fortunately our lass doesn’t mind mowing the lawn so I normally go and do the food shopping whilst she does that!

Did you treat both sides as well ?
No! It's more cosmetic, they came with a 10 year guarantee. When they start to fall apart we'll get some new ones. We did have a lot of fun when they put the concrete posts in, with me and my wife painting panels on both sides trying to keep up with the fencers.

I'm the same, I keep it neat and tidy, but can't say I enjoy it. Also we just don't use it. I can't remember the last time I just sat out there. My wife has just reminded me that the grass needs cutting and edging!

I enjoy every aspect of my life. Any gardening, maintenance or housework is done by my respective staff teams. I can be away from a home for a few months at a time so they need to be maintained.

Try spraying it on next time, it's a lot easier and much quicker. I go over it with a brush afterwards, jobs a good un.

How long did the one behind the bird bath take and why is it painted to look like a bush?

I did try the sprayer a few years ago, I found it went everywhere and I seemed to actually take more time than just using a brush.

I get behind all the shrubs as best I can, which is also why I seem to get bitten to buggery.

Yeah they were rubbish a few years back, but the modern sprayers are fine Chervil. I used to paint it on, until I saw a bloke doing his, I went straight out and bought one. Cheap too.
