MJ's dream dog had always been a Swedish Vallhund. After moving to Christchurch and settling in, the time was finally right to make this dream come true. MJ and her husband, Josh, tracked down a breeder, got themselves on the list, and settled in to wait for their ball of fluff to arrive. Once they got word their new family member was on his way, they went about preparing for his arrival. At the top of the list was "puppy proofing" their backyard gate. The Problem They wanted to feel secure letting Zeppelin out into the backyard without the worry of him escaping, and their existing gate wasn't doing enough in the way of reassurance. The gate was wire mesh, potentially "quite chewable" for those razor sharp milk teeth. This is where Builderscrack enters the story... The Solution MJ, a self conf

Boundary fence

Posted 1 week ago

Hi, Looking at getting quotes for around 100 m of boundary fencing. The land is slightly sloping so that will need to be taken into account. There are also other neighbours that may require further fencing so may be a opportunity for a significant job. I still need to talk to the neighbours regarding this, unless you are able to on my behalf, as they are still building their house as well. I am also looking at purchasing a 3 three rail fence to put around the front of my property...
