  • Limestone wall/garden bed

    Ok, gotta finish off my backyard.. had a few quotes - but have been insane for the amount of work needed..

    I need a couple of garden beds done under my patio from reconstituted blocks.. anyone here a block layer ? or into this ? it's not the great wall of china..

        Hire a kanga if you can get it in the back yard. You can get an attachment for them to lift the blocks.

          they're great if you want to tear up your back lawn. Call D + L Landscaping speak to Daniel on 0410 173 484 he did a great job on my place (limestone garden beds, paving, grass etc) and was a SHITLOAD cheaper than anyone else.

            Not if they've got lawn tyres you goose. We do about 10km of trenching and other things with our kanga eveyr month & dont ruin any lawns.

                How much work is there? is it a single day or more?

                Do you have the blocks/sand/cement already or do you want that supplied as well?

                    Yeah, I _can_ do it.. used a kanga heaps while i was working at csbp, and have experience with bobcat's, fork lifts and front end loaders.. so i know what i need to do..

                    I was just hoping for a more professional finish, cos you know - the difference in the look at the end of the day is a bit better..

                    I wouldnt attempt to be a dentist cos it aint my regular job..

                    It's cool, I'll lay the footing and do the wall myself.. the wife said " I'll help " - but i can just see it now.. me: " push the block " - wife: " Push the bloody block yourself - I'm going inside " LOL
