Tom was prompt, polite, positive and precise! He did a wonderful job digging our trench (in the rain mind you). He saved our plants and cleaned up afterwards. Would hire again without hesitation. Thanks Tom!

Fill in trench


Algester QLD, Australia

25th Aug 2022

Irrigation pipe was replaced but the soil has compacted and it has now left a trench along the oval. This compacted trench now needs to be filled in and made level with surrounding ground. It is approximately 140 m in length total (both along length of oval and across half width), 40 cm wide, 5-10 cm deep. We estimate that 4 cubic metres of good quality soil are required to be purchased and delivered and then moved by hand along length of trench. Soil must be delivered to edge of oval and moved by hand and wheelbarrow - no machinery can access onto oval. Image is attached showing location of trench along length of oval and half width. Another image shows the current condition of the trench (now with grass growing in it) that requires soil to make it level with the surrounding ground. Soil must be somewhat compacted after placing in trench (not left loose) so it remains level with surrounding ground and does not compact further. Soil must be proper soil from landscaping supplier - "fill" must not be used. No turf needs to be placed on top. You need to supply soil, move by hand/wheelbarrow and fill the entire trench so that it is level with surrounding ground. Site must be left clean and tidy. - Due date: Before Friday, 16 September 2022
