Re: SOAKWELLS - How easy are they to put in and install ?

I guess it's possible.
How big are their proposed soakwells and how close are they to your footings?
Heavy Duty trafficable lids?

Improving soil after lawn is laid

Is it 'clumping kitty litter' but? There seams to be a distinct difference between clumping and non clumping.

Plenty of ZioClor at Bunnings Cockburn.
Now to track down some affordable Clay. That stuff from Sustainable Outdoors is not my definition of affordable.

If you want to be more selective with how much you get delivered and what you get and you don't mind a bit of hard work, the Shire of Armadale…

If they have it on their website, then the Special Orders desk should be able to get it in for me.
I'll let you know how I go.

I've been into a couple of Bunnings and I couldn't find it in the pool section. Might have to go to Special Orders.
Yeah I'll just hunt the local supermarkets…

I'm struggling to find Bentonite & Zeolite anywhere thats affordable.
Any ideas?

Actron Air-Thoughts/Reviews from People who already have it

Apologies, in Perth we don't have such issues... different mindset as I was thinking of your problem during Summer :)

Well I paid our deposit on our 17kW ESP+ thismorning.
Can't wait to get it installed in October hopefully!

I'm no expert, but I'd say those temperature are set far too low and your system is probably running at 100% power trying to get the temps to down.

We're looking at getting an Actron system in Perth before this summer and was hoping you could provide me with the details of that quote Johnny?
Have you had it installed…

Very interested, thanks.

Anyone had some rendering done in the back/frontyard at a respectable price?
Not really sure what the going rate is.

Building Piara Waters/Harrisdale/Forrestdale?

I haven't got anything in the mail about verge collection.
When does it come through Burtonia ?

haha we were caught out pointing at it when someone was in the driveway.
Can't help but smile when I walk past it.

I noticed that today... good to see.
I'm waiting for a pathway to the roundabout... too much to ask?

Irrigation questions answered

Looks simple enough, but not so cheap I'm sure.

Excellent news, cheers :)
Would I need to get a fertigation unit anyway to put that chemical through which prevents drip blockage ?

Rather than start a new thread I thought I would give this one a bit of a revival since it has plenty of good info in it already

Canning Vale sand

haha!
We've built in Piara Waters and although we have just sand... I can't wait to apply the advice here and see our grass flourish!

Yeah I considered direct stick, but wasnt sure how water resistant Liquid Nails is... so not going to do that.
Im not going to worry about storage.

Could I have the jarrah slat at the back of the seat screwed down instead?
Im worried that a batten laid ontop of the brickwork will lift the jarrah too high…

I considered making a storage space underneath... put the decking on a hinge so i could open it from the front. Decided this is outside my skill though.

Cheers for the reply mate,
Great idea... I hadn't thought of using timber battens between the brickwork. We'd need solid bricks to screw into wouldnt we?
That Dek-Tie looks great too!

60mm paver a must for area with car on top, sometimes?

Bonita Stone pavers are excellent quality and their 60mm pavers are not much more than 40mm
Well under what 'big-name' companies are asking for

30mm Granite is not the same as 40mm Limestone pavers.
My advice would be the same though, should be fine - but I wouldnt do it for commonly-used driven space like…

Why so many grey driveways?

Grey looks like concrete to me.
We got a 'natural' coloured limestone paver which looks great.
Even though we sealed it properly we still get car-tyre marks a little.
And it's VERY glarey...…
