Outsourcing Housework Freed Up Precious Time For This Busy Homeowner

Busy homeowner Michelle holds down parenting, full-time work and studying towards her PhD. She shares with us how she used Builderscrack to outsource her housework so she could focus on the important stuff... How It Started To say Michelle is a driven person is an understatement. Sitting across from a woman that packs so much into her days is inspiring, not only because of that drive but the clever way she has arranged her life to make it possible. She tells me "I’m doing a full-time PhD and I’m doing full-time work, so for me, I have lots to do and absolutely no time. I also have a teenager who’s almost 16, who is extremely social.

Hedge Planting

We require 35 Lilly Pilly hedge plants to be planted along our fence line. The plants are around 1.5m high, and the majority of the fenceline runs alongside the driveway therefore the strip of soil where the plants need to go is fairly narrow. The nursery where the plants are being sourced has recommended that each one also has half a bag of garden mix combined in with the soil to be put back around the plant - they are supplying this. The plant delivery is still TBC, but want to line up someone...
