Dig a trench in my backyard and remove the soil


Bondi Beach NSW, Australia

23rd Aug 2023

There is a small garden area in my backyard, and I need someone to come and dig up a trench that is about 3-4m long, 40cm wide and 40cm deep so that I can plant things there. There is a lot of old mulch and roots in the soil that need to be removed from the property, so you will need a wheelbarrow and a trailer to take away the organic matter. You will need a sharper tool like a pick axe to cut away at some of the underground stubborn roots. In the photo, the trench will be against the back wall - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 23 August 2023

I have just had a trench dug with an excavator on my property and it needs to be cleared of any remaining fill etc and we need to place a layer of about 100mm of clean sand in the bottom of the trench. Ideally, 2 strong people who are available to work the whole day for $30 an hour each. This will be a hard day's work so you will need to be physically up for it.

Remove sand and small rocks from a trench channel drain


Coogee NSW 2034, Australia

19th Jun 2023

Using trench shovels and perhaps your hands as well, you will need to shovel a fair bit of sand and little rocks out of a trench drain and into a wheel barrow or buckets. Length of trench is about 12m. See photo. Wheel barrow or buckets are supplied. Shovels can be supplied if you don't have the tools. I have estimated it will take a maximum of two hours work for one person. Therefore, 2 hours at $60 per hour, the fixed price is $120. If the job takes less than 2 hours, you still get paid $120. If the job takes longer, you get paid an extra $30 for every half an hour over time. Suits 2 people or more. Or else one person can do it. Please let me know how many people, if you have your own trench digging tools, and which day you can do it. - Due date: Flexible

Hard worker. Experienced. Job done extremely well.

Dig 8mx1mx0.8m trench for bamboo to be planted along fence line


Ryde NSW, Australia

2nd May 2023

We need a trench dug along a fence line to plant bamboo. It needs to be 8m long, 1m wide and at least 80cm deep. The soil is quite hard/compacted. There is also a small tree stump (already half dug out) for you to remove within that section. A chainsaw could be ideal for removing this, or perhaps it could be dug out. You don’t need to do the planting, just the digging. Soil does not need to be taken away, it can just be put to the side. Ideal dates are Wed 3 May, Friday 5 May or Sat 6 May. - Due date: Needs to be done on Wednesday, 3 May 2023

Jhoyner and his team were wonderful. They worked hard and quickly clearing hard soil and a tree stump, with wonderful communication. Jhoyner is a lovely guy who I will definitely book again.
