We are on the move and need a GOOD clean of our 3 bedroom house. All surfaces need doing and will include: ceiling, walls, and floors (carpet and vinyl) , we have an open fireplace so it does need a good going over. Internal windows and frames, blinds in the kitchen, expelair fan, oven and hob. X1 bath and shower, toilet including fan in the bathroom. Kitchen cupboards, x2 hall cupboards, wardrobes in all rooms. x1 set of stairs. I absolutely need a quote so you or whoever you recommend need to be able to visit and provide a quote, references please. The clean must be completed 16th or 17th November. We are getting a series of quotes together and will decide in the next week. If I do not answer your post it is simply because there are a few and I don't have a lot of time to organise this.
Have you thought of abandoning your lawn. Th Wellington City Council is encouraging people to think about the benefits of meadows.
The council team at Botanic Garden ki Paekākā are putting down their mowers and growing a meadow on Glenmore Lawn (pictured).
Not mowing means less maintenance but also has benefits for the environment. Not mowing saves on petrol and also promotes bio diversity. Bees, insects and caterpillars all love long grass.
What do you think about growing meadows and not cutting lawns?
Since its inception in 1912, and with the support of our Charities team TG Macarthy Trust continues to help New Zealand communities by awarding grants to not-for-profit organisations. Read about what the trust is getting up to, almost 120 years after it was established.
We are a group branched from or an offshoot from the Bell's Track working group involved in restoring our native forests as we worked on Bell's track around Awarua Street station and the reserve in Awarua Street. As coordinator for the last 20 years decided best to split it into 3 groups. Tony Cook will run Bell's Track and Matthew the reserve between 72 and 94 Awarua Street.
We have decided to call our group Railway R`op`u (te reo for group) our aim is to have the Johnsonville line a native plant corridor and people can buy day passes and be given a map showing the walks and cafes at each station.
At the moment we meet every Tuesday morning 11 am at Awarua Street Station but now need more help. Yes you can join us on Tuesdays or adopt a spot or look after a particular species of plant, The attached photos show what we have achieved in 14 years but as our area includes Cummings Park and railway embankment there is plenty to do.
An example of how you can help is we planted 12 Nikau palms and they are now getting overwhelmed by weeds so to care for them would be a real help. Once we get a canopy then that represses the weeds but this can take 4 to 6 years.
I cannot stress enough the importance of our forests in remediëring the damage we have done .
For those interested in knowing more I do a tour at Zealandia every Thursday at 11am talking about our manu (birds) and reforestation.
