Re: Add to existing fence height without removing fence

A trellis is the usual solution. Fix 6’x4”x1” treated planks to your existing posts and then fix a 1’ trellis to suit.

Re: Extending exitsing concrete pad for garage

None. Sounds perfect. I’ve poured concrete for 35 years mate and that is exactly what I would do.

Re: Towable digger/backhoe hire

Hmmmm, Carl it seems like I said it would be easier to just dig it by hand than start dismantling and rebuilding plant machinery. A couple of good keen men can move quite a bit of earth in a day. The money and time you are going to invest would be better spent on manpower. Sometimes it is what it is...

Re: Towable digger/backhoe hire

Laying concrete flags on a 6mm limestone screed?

Hi, my name is Jason, a groundworker of 35 years. I need to lay 2x2 concrete flags for a driveway on a sand screed which I cannot do in wet weather. However, I was thinking I could lay them on the 6mm limestone screed used on permeable block pavior driveways. If all the edgings are in place and the ...
