Laying Turf Well… Laying Turf Badly…

Yep – you can really stuff it up if you don’t know what you are doing! As with all jobs of this kind preparation is everything – after that its ‘green side up’… or so you’d think… But we have seen jobs where the landscaper obviously under-ordered on turf and just left a 100mm strip down the side of the yard.

Grit in Hunter MP Rotators

Recently I installed a new reticulation system running off a bore for a client in Yanchep. The bore was old and not particularly deep and the water supply was not strong.

The video above shows a poorly performing nozzle fire back into […]

What does the fuse message mean? a) You have a solenoid coil that is faulty and causing the controller to fail. b) The controller has a problem and needs replacing. Usually I can tell by looking at […]
