Affordable Garage Carpet Auckland

"John, a director of Affordable Garage Carpets says the garage is now likely to be an extension of the home, not a room where you keep the door closed.
"Carpet in the garage becoming a must-have, rather than a luxury item," John says. "The older generation took a little longer to come around to the idea, but that's changed now as they have seen it laid in friends' houses. Carpet not only makes the garage more useable, it also hides the paint splatters that tradespeople leave behind when a house is finished.
"And because the garage looks and feels like a room of the house, the kids are happy to hang out there. You don't need to worry about kids with allergies or asthma because the carpet stops all the usual dust that accumulates in the garage, and it can be vacuumed."
John also says the elderly appreciate the non-slip benefits of a garage carpet. "So many people have their laundry in the garage today, and there's nothing better than being able to walk in your socks into a clean, dry and warm laundry area."
You can expect to pay around $1000 to carpet a double garage, and about $500 for a single garage."

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Resource Consent For Landfill In Dome Valley

PETER & SUE from Orewa

Noticed on page 13 of Rodney Times March 26th issue, that the Council are calling for submissions to obtain resource consent for this controversial landfill. Submissions opened March 25th and close May 26th. Am I being paranoid about the timing of this when we are in lock down and the Council is closed. Surely this should have been put off until we are out of this crisis. What do others think? How many people know about it?
