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. Every weekend there are at least five to seven friends invited, and they are having a sleepover. I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard findi

Quote for New Grass or fixing up current grass.

Posted 1 month ago

Hello My back garden grass is practically dead and looking very sorry for itself for the most part. I am sick of looking at it so it needs fixing. I have no clue how or what is the best option so I am open to practical suggestions. I suspect it may need topsoiling too as there are parts of it where there are now rocks sticking out. I don't want the fake astroturf (anything not natural) as my cat loves to get out there and have a munch and a roll around. We have a big front area of gr...

Hello I have a reasonably sized area around the back and down the sides of my house where there are a lot of plants and the bark has over time disappeared. It needs replacing and some of the weed matting will need fixing too. Both banks are quite steep and I don't know if the bark was the best suggestion/idea when we moved in as it is possible it 'falls' down the bottom quicker but perhaps there are suggestions of ways to prevent it or alternative products like rock/s to use. I want...
