New Turf in Carramar

Post Image

We haven’t had a heap on over winter, but here’s a job I did last week removing old patchy turf and replacing it with brand new wintergreen. We began by removing the old grass and spreading 40ml of lawn mix all over the 90m to be turfed. With some care we were able to avoid […]

Tricky Access Irrigation

Post Image

Sometimes it can be difficult to install a system when there is no way of running wire from the control box to the solenoids. Maybe the liquid limestone went in too quickly and people hadn’t considered the future problems.  It may not be all over…   There are a couple of battery powered solenoids models […]

Roam Remote Control

Post Image

  I managed to get a hold of one of these babies for home the other day. On a quarter acre block it’s a bit of a pain running back and forth to test the stations so a remote comes in handy – and its even better when you need to change a nozzle. Now […]

X Core Hybrid Controllers

Post Image

This is the control box you would use if you have no access to mains power. It is totally battery operated and does not require a 240v supply. I came across one of these in Butler this week and only realised when we arrived that it was a hybrid. The trick here is that none […]

What’s in Your Bore Water?

Post Image

Check this out! Today we did a job on an old bore in Yokine. It involved removing the elbow from the top of the bore and as I inspected it this is what I saw. The mineral deposits from the water have formed a crusty inner skin that looks a bit like coconut inside the […]
