Lawn and Garden

Keeping on top of the lawn and garden can be a bit of a hassle, but there's nothing quite like a nicely presented backyard. Keeping the grounds of your property in check is somewhat of a New Zealand weekend pastime.

Lawns - they grow all year round. Summer they'll grow faster, but Winter can be harder to find a day to get them done. When a lawn gets really overgrown, it's a good idea to use a good quality lawn mower to cut it back.

Trimming back trees and hedges are key to enjoying a nicely presented outdoor area. But it's important to have the proper equipment and safety precautions when using cutting tools.

Maintaining your property can be made a lot easier by using the right equipment, correctly.

We've broken down the most common tasks in lawn and garden work, and developed some handy guides to help you get the job done.
