Don't watch the grass
Sometimes our lawns just don't want to
grow how we want them to. From the
insects who disrupt the initial sowing,
to the myriad of other issues along the way
such as flooding, drought and ''why won't
you just grow!''
We want our lawns to grow in such a way
that its a pleasure to look at. Lush, thick,
green grass growing perfectly edged
around our pavements, paths and gardens.
We want to skip that dirt patch first stage
with plastic bags on sticks to scare away the
So that is where it becomes convenient to
buy grass that is pre-grown. Bought in rolls,
ready to be rolled out and enjoyed,
convenience is at the fore and the hard
work is done for you.
So no more waiting, wondering, whining
over your patch, consider buying pre-grown
grass from your local garden centre.
Start your build today
With the new year
comes the feeling
of starting fresh.
And where better to
express that feeling than in
a bit of home renovation?
We can sometimes out-
grow our homes, but don't
want to move out or move
on, so why not consider an
extension? From the badly
needed extra bedroom to
extra space for the living
area or master bedroom,
building something extra
to your home may make all
For the majority of us, we
grow attached to our homes. The
small imperfections, the oddly
placed cupboard or soft third step
to avoid, it's all familiar and ours,
but as families expand, so too
must our homes.
The first step to take is what you
want to get out of this renovation.
An extra bedroom? More living
space? A bigger kitchen? When
you have decided on that, then
choosing a trusted builder should
be your next step. Word of mouth
is your most powerful tool.
Everyone knows someone who
knows someone who's hired a
builder to complete a job. Find
out who works quickly and
efficiently in your area, and find
out what they are good at. Never
assume just because
someone is cheap, they
are good. Finding a
reputable builder should
be your biggest priority -
not how much they
charge. Sometimes, for
the very best job com-
pleted you may have to
dig deeper in your pock-
ets, but for a job well
done, its priceless. Find
out the time frame it can
be completed in. Some-
times choosing a builder
at a busy time of year isn't
the best move to make. If
the building work will
cause you inconvenience, choos-
ing to make those renovations at a
quiet time of year for the builder
will mean the job will be done
quicker - causing less incon-
venience for you.
This year, make the decision to
make your home into something
you are proud of.
Your roof is important
When we're buying or building a house, the last thing on our
mind is how the roof is going to look.
After-all, we can't see it properly from the
However, unless you want leaks and rust
further down the track, we need to give our roofs the
tender loving care they deserve.
When purchasing a house, not only is the structure
and foundations important, the roof that covers your
belongings is equally as important.
Was it a rushed patch up job by the last owner? Is it
rusty? Have they used rust-free metal? You could
save yourself thousands of dollars by asking yourself
those questions and getting the experts in for a look.
Steel is the most common metal roofing material as it
is sturdy, however it was known to go rusty. Experts
have spent many years finding out the best ways to
protect it from rust and a zinc coating, sealant, and
heavy duty paint was found to protect your roof and
protect your wallet.
However, if you choose stainless steel, you save
yourself worrying about the extra coatings because
this steel is not designed to rust. However, because
of its in-built anti-corroding properties, it is an
expensive roofing option.
If you are looking for something lightweight and
won't rust, aluminium is your metal. This is the most
popular option for residential roofing, however if you
are after a natural look, it will need to be coated.
