Killing Driveway Weeds FAST with a Pressure Washer - 8 months Later - Did it work?- Block Paving Weeds / Personal_Finance / Home Maintenance

By: N_Walayat

Over 8 months ago I used a Karcher K7 pressure washer to blast the weeds away on our weed infested drive way, since when many have commented that it would not last and that the weeds would soon return, well here 8 months on is the state of our driveway to show the extent of the return of the weeds, to see if this is a good way to get rid of weeds for decent amount of time all without using a single drop of chemicals.

Again the block paving was covered with weeds and too much to use a wire brush to scrub them out so I used our new pressure washer for the first time on full power hoping that it would work, else the power washer would be heading back to amazon. And it did the job at them time all the weeds were gone!

DIY Money Saving Magic with Wood Moisture Meter for DIY Repairs / Personal_Finance / Home Maintenance

By: HGR

Here's how a cheap moisture meter can save you a lot of time and money in DIY repairs. For instance we bought a cheap meter from Amazon for just £14 (https://amzn.to/2GZZnlA) to test the boards on a 10 year old decking so that we don't unnecessarily replace good boards, better to get the job all done in one go rather than having to revisit a few months later.

The Moisture meter has 4 sharp prongs, It basically works by sticking the prongs into wood and then gives a percentage moisture reading, anything over 20% means the woods likely rotting, most wood should read less than 20%. I tested it on a tree and it came back at 40%. The dry deck boards generally gave 0%-5% readings so were fine. 1 board that needed replacing underside was giving readings of over 30%!
