Soil Removal, small amount of concrete

Posted 1 year ago

I estimate I have around 4 cubes of Waterloo's finest clay soil that I need removed - was hand excavated over the last month or so and is accessible from the driveway and should accommodate a small excavator. Feijoa tree can be 'modified' if required for better access. There is a small quantity of broken concrete pad and a few rocks that I would like to be removed also.

Install post to mount letterbox

Posted 9 months ago

I have a new letterbox to install, but it's a bit big to just pop onto our picket fence rail, so need a post put in just behind the fence. I need a post hole dug, and the post put in and cemented, with the top level to the top of the fence rail so that the letterbox can be supported by both. Depending on the additional cost, if you could install the letterbox too, that would be great. Otherwise I'll do that bit myself.
