Landscaping disappointment - help!

Karolyn from Khandallah

I have to say, I am struggling to find good people to do landscaping work. I had commissioned Red Rocks landscaping to move my clothes line. They never completed the work and left me with a big mess. Is there any companies that would like to do this work for me? Attached is a photo of the mess left and the space I would like to clothes line to go.

Delighted to see karearea

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hullo Neighbours, it is not Friday Feathered Friend but I thought you might enjoy this post from Rosa Marie.

"The morning just got better and better for me, thanks to Nycki Proctor who messaged me to say that a hawk had got into her neighbour's empty aviary through an opened door and couldn't get out again and did I want to come around and photograph it?
Apparently it had got in before through a hole in the wire which had since been fixed up but it was still trying to get out that way!
Luckily it was still in the aviary, even with the door wide open, so I took lots of photos of it before we decided that I needed to climb up the ladder and prise open the mended part for it. After I got down, it was still in the aviary so I just kept snapping away at it till it figured out how to get out again. It then did a bit a circle around the house to say goodbye before it flew off into the distance.
A lovely way of getting myself invited for a coffee and a good old chat!
I have since been made to realise that this is a falcon/karearea."
