Transforming a Verge

When you live opposite a school your front verge gets parked on more than most, but now that the council have stopped verge parking in the street it was time to revamp that verge that was looking pretty dodgy. It was pretty ugly… Then the bobcat came in Old lawn and weeds removed and 40mm of good quality soil spread. The next day I came in and repaired and reconfigured the reticulation using MP rotators to get the coverage needed. And then the Sir Walter Buffalo went down. The different looking lawn sections are just the ‘grain’ of the lawn […]

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. Or this one where rather than butting the edges up hard he just filled the gaps with soil.   The turf will grow across, but its not what you want to see. A good lawn should be fit for […]

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. It meant we had to reduce the pumping capacity to 50l/min rather than 100l/min to ensure we didn’t suck up too much dirt. Even at 50l/min there was still some fine grit coming thru and getting stuck in the MP rotator nozzles. It was only happening intermittently and the grit was so fine that we couldn’t see it. The video above shows a poorly performing nozzle fire back into […]

I am Getting a Fuse Message on my Irritirol Kwikdial Reticulation Controller

If I had a dollar for every time I hear this… And if you have spent time looking for the ‘fuse’ then you will be frustrated because there isn’t one.. And the battery symbol with the line thru it doesn’t mean that the battery is dead, because there isn’t a battery either… Ok – so whoever designed these wasn’t thinking ease of use! 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 […]
