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. She decided to give this new way of finding a tradie ago, she posted her job, added

Easy landscaping with opportunity of another project.

Posted 2 years ago

We have a bank on the outside of our fence that has gotten out of control. The area is around 27m long and 2-3m wide. I have purchased some flaxes that should be here next week.

The bank is rather steep so in order for the flaxes and plants to maximise their water uptake, a ledge will have to be made with dirt. On the other side of our fence we would love to have some hedging planted, to mat...
