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.

Karen's odd shapped yard

Posted 2 months ago

I need 11 square meters of artificial grass installed in my small back yard. I already bought the artificial grass. Mitre10 helped me figure how much I'd need for the job. The yard was leveled by DCC employees a month ago; it may need some smoothing out. I have not purchased the tools or tape or glue needed for this job because a person Mitre10 recommended was going to do it all -- he is too backed up, too busy. So I need to hire someone else (who knows what he/she is doing) to get this job...
