Pet mesh by the meter?

emilygirl - please let me know how you go with the cat enclosure netting and if it's good :)

Did you mean flyscreen, but really tough, or actual netting so that the cats can't get in/out?

Just a quick question, after handover, do we contact our CSA for any issues or is there someone else we should now be contacting?

Anything, especially fruit. I've tried looking into growing native fruit in the garden, but most of the fruit trees I found were far too big for our block

I'd love to know what native food would be good to plant in a suburban backyard.

Hi there,
I'm currently building with PD. We have almost reached lockup stage, with the roof almost complete, bricks completed and the doors and windows are in. The roof in…

Masonary colouring to repair brick faults?

Did you end up using the company and were you satisfied by the results?
Has anyone else had their bricks recoloured to make them more uniform in colour?

She/he's gorgeous! :)

Render Colour - Any suggestions??

What about having a nice chocolatey brown colour for the windows and then a pale (creamy white?) colour for the portico?

Matching retaining wall bricks to house

You can always take a photo of your bricks to the second hand brick dealers. Might be a bit easier than going back and forth with bricks :)

You can try going to a second hand brick seller. They try and match brick colours :)

Very. Am just trying to find out if it's an isolated experience or something that's happening to a few people.

Definitely reject the variations. I'd also be questioning why they want to vary them.
