Navigating Wet Lawns - One Family's Solution

Hiring Jared, from Firth Landscapes, for a few days work was the ideal solution to put an end to one family's soggy lawn crossings this winter...... The Job Liz needed a garden path extended. One already existed, but it stopped short of the lawn, which meant that every time anyone in her family went to the washing line, or woodshed, they had a stretch of often wet and muddy lawn to cross. Liz had the pavers to match her existing path, she had made the plan and measured up exactly where the path would go, all she needed was to find a willing tradie. The Solution It was during this search that she came across builderscrack.co.nz. She immediately liked the way only tradies interested in doing the job were presented to the homeowner. For Liz, who works full time, it meant she could cut out the time-consuming step of “cold-calling” tradies to see if they were even interested in her job.

An alternative to weeds!

Posted 1 day ago

There's a small ~1.2m wide x ~5m strip behind my place that is currently overrun by weeds. I'd like to turn this into something that's a bit nicer to look at (mainly to the benefit of the neighbour), and is very low maintenance. My current thinking is weed mat + pebbles and pavers, but very open to ideas. The area isn't much use for anything as it's on the south side of the house + so small.
