A new house definitely deserves a level (pardon the pun) playing field to start with. That’s exactly what I was contracted to do by the owner of this house in Gawler recently. All the overgrown vegetation, weeds and tree stump needed to be removed and scraped back to start fresh. It’s actually quite amazing how much bigger a space looks when it’s yard leveled!
I’ll be honest, this shed demolition and removal job turned out to be bigger than I originally thought. Turned out the shed was, well basically a shed within a shed. Completely decked out with insulation and inner wall for a teenage style retreat. Having kids myself (now all grown up thank god) I can relate with wanting to give them their own space away from the main house.
Demo, dig, dump, clear and level! That is exactly what this excavation job was all about and what a massive job it turned out to be. This odd shaped block of land is tucked in between a couple of houses in a suburban area and is destined to be Subdivided by the owner and Developed into two beautiful new house sites. The only problem is it is full to the brim of concrete, debris, rubble and vegetation.
Another backyard renovation today and a big one at that. This was certainly one of those large yards that hadn’t been touched in years, was completely overgrown and would need a far few hours of work thrown at it to get the job down. The owner is looking at putting in a new large shed and therefore needed the area cleared, levelled and ready to go. This required the old run down shed to be completely demolished and removed.
It was all about the Vegie Patch today and I couldn’t have been happier with how the restoration of this giant soon to be vegetable garden turned out. The client was astounded with my work, not only because of how the finished site looked but also the time it took me to complete it. Just a half days work with my Bobcat Hire and this overgrown, raggedy backyard is now screaming for some seeds to be planted.
Now this was certainly are large backyard that needed some serious attention. As you can see from the first picture, there are large mounds of soil that have been overgrown with grass due to them being there for some time. Trust me, these were everywhere and were bigger than they look in the image. The owner was preparing the block for a subdivision and needed to have the mounds and site leveled off.
