Our next door neighbours are very heavy smokers and we get a bit fed up with
the smell of it.
Wondering if we bought one of those fairly big house fans and placed it on
the garden table whether it would make any difference or would be it be a
waste of time?
Sometimes a thick hedge between them and you could help. Trees and
shrubs are supposed to absorb pollution aren't they? If not, lots of
strong smelling stuff on boundary like rosemary, pennyroayl, mint, even
curry plants! Sacha and i would recommend Salvia turkestanica :)
You read my mind, you really did!! That's just what I would suggest.
That *and* a fan blowing the 'scent' in their direction! But a thick
hedge would help because it would not only baffle some of the smoke, it
would force it upwards and away from the OP's nose level!
Most likely Dave has already got a life and he is trying to hang on to it
and his health by avoiding passive smoking.
Presumably you are a cancerous vulgarious, otherwise you would appreciate
just how abhorrent the putrid stench of second-hand tobacco smoke is to
Actually there are some areas where ground and location mean that the
smoke and smell lingers far longer than is normal. You sometimes get in
in areas around offices when people are accustomed to smoke . You seem
to get a sudden blast of it as you walk through the area. Maybe the OP's
garden is such an area.
Cook curry or burn lots of toast is my only other advice:)
It is well documented that Roy Castle did die of passive smoking, but if
you are simply going to contradict anyone who doesn't agree with you
then I shall not waste my time with you.
