Another example of work undertaken, mini fencing.

Garden tidying

A new customer on Balmoral Court in Dunblane hired bibllfixit to weed out some part of the garden.

All done and looking nice now.

I have another appointment soon for more work in front of property.

Garden Airer base

A new property in Dunblane was in need of a base for a washing line, or airer, to be inserted into the ground.

Dug a 60cm (2 feet) deep hole, prepared postcrete and all was done within one hour.

 

Garden Clear Up – Dunblane

A new customer found this website and requested a quote for the removal of a couple of cubic feet of rubble and earth plus old sheds and so on.

I recommended him to hire a big skip, he organised the skip and one afternoon work with two helpers did the job ahead of schedule!

A couple of cubic feet of rubble and earth plus other rubbish destined for the Skip!

Fence posts

A regular customer (a landlord) asked me to secure more of one of his property Garden Fence posts which had snapped flush with ground due to the combination of rot and Winter storms.

Organised new posts, stained them and replaced old ones, which were just planted (no concrete!) with Fast setting “postcrete”.

New pond liner

A customer in Bridge of Allan had a problem with a pond that leaked, the culprit was an old liner that, frankly, looked knackered, so took upon the job to source new liner and replace it.

Some additional work in the way of a new pump and LED lights had to be re-wired, all done and pond back in shape, as per photos below.

Drainage work

A client in Dunblane had problems with his garden drainage, I quoted him for the work and he was reasonably happy to award me the task of fixing it, the plan involved digging a trench around the building, bury a drain pipe all the way (about 25 metres/yards) and cover it with gravel, all the slabs had to be lifted, jet washed and repositioned at 90 degrees, apart from the front of the house that had to be re-levelled.

A total of three bulk bags of gravel, one bulk bag of Sand was needed to complete the work

Flood lights and pictures

A big customer of mine in Dunblane needed a couple of floodlight bulbs replaced, re-sited and some mirrors and various pictures hung on the wall.

I also need to source a small bit of wire to repair the door bell

More fence work – kind of…

Today I made a new garden door! Parts were stained prior to building the door.

See pictures below forĀ  before and after…
