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.

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.
