Update on the garden:
The lawn plugs have doubled and look like monstrous green tarantulas colonising the garden. But I went outside and discovered a snaking trail of pushed-up ground winding its way all over our newly composted and planted lawn. A mole!!! I started asking around and checked on Google: What do moles do to a garden, anyway? Do you have to get rid of them? And if you do, how are you supposed to do it?
The internet had some vague answers involving traps, sonar devices, poisons. But the advice of the garden people that had planted the lawn in the first place took the cake. I’ve added punctuation:
Hi,Your mole is so happy because he has a new soft layer to tunnel around in.It’s hard one:-Some say urinate on the area as they are territorial.Some call exterminators.I do not like hurting moles and see this as a blessing.Mole appearances:- http://www.extrasensory-perceptions-guide.com/power-totem-animal.html“Explores below the surface by digging a little deeper therefore he helps us with our subconscious minds. Mole will help you explore the hidden parts of yourself.”My advice, keep flattening out the lawn whilst contemplating the above.
