Trench digging


Melrose Park DC SA 5039, Australia

19th Jan 2023

I've received some feed back and so will try to improve my explanation: I need two French trench's dug in my garden and separate to that about 1.5 ton of dirt removed from the property. The trenches, 1 behind a 7 foot hedge(13mtrs) the other in front of the shed garden bed (7mtrs). I am thinking about 200wide x 400mm deep. But am open to recommendations. No access for machinery other than hand equipment. The dirt that needs removal is a) the over burden from the trenches and b) a pile at the back of the yard. -

Stepping stones through lawn and trench dug


Adelaide SA, Australia

25th Apr 2021

Laying bluestone pavers/stepping stones (0.4mx0.6m) through a flat lawn to an outdoor courtyard. The length of the lawn to the courtyard is ~10.8m, each paver is 0.4m long and we are looking to alternate 0.4m of lawn between each paver i.e. 0.4m paver and then 0.4m lawn. 28 pavers to be laid in total, laying x2 wide. All materials supplied. Before the pavers are laid we also require a 500mm trench dug under where the pavers will be to run some conduit.

Unacceptable quality of work: Quite a simple job (laying stepping stones through a lawn area) however Daniel was unable to complete the job to a satisfactory standard. We had issues with the pavers (stepping stones) not being level, odd distances apart and uneven amount of base material underneath - which resulted in pavers lifting if you stepped on the wrong edge. My guess is Daniel believed this was a very easy task (albeit priced at $600 labour, which works out to 1.5 days according to Daniel’s day rate) and arrived to the job on a Friday afternoon which gave himself only half a day to finish. End result is the pavers he started on first are perfect, the ones he was working on in the dark are very poor. It’s not all negative - I can complement Daniel on his good communication and wanting to do the right thing - we settled on lowering the quote to 1/3 the original price (thank you for being flexible) and I’m in the process of arranging a professional landscape company to fix the job.

Gardening: backfill trench with soil for planting


Burnside SA 5066, Australia

14th Oct 2020

We have a 10 metre long trench which we dig to fill with soil for planting bamboo. It now need to be backfilled with approx 2.5m3 of compost and soil (already on site) (My husband started the job but now work is too busy and he can't find time to finish) There are then 8 bamboo which need to be planted in the trench (we can do or you can) There are also 2 planter boxes to be filled with soil which will hold 1 bamboo each. Would love to have job completed next week. Photos of trench, planter boxes and soil attached.

Brilliant job and fabulous communication. Thank you so much!!!

i have 15m x 1m down the side of my driveway (photos available) as well as a 12m x .5m down the middle of the driveway that needs to be dug down 100mm ready for cement to be laid. The side next to the driveway has a downpipe that is almost level with the concrete so will need to dug around it. I would like the dirt removed, can be used as cleanfill. Price and dates negotiable

Dig 38m trench and plant hedge


Tranmere SA, Australia

29th Mar 2020

Dig a trench around my suburban property to fill with good soil and then plant small hedge plants approx 80cm apart. I can source the plants and soil if necessary. Photos show where the hedge is to go, allowing room for where the council may one day put a walking path. Ignore the &10 budget obviously

Retaining wall trenching and preparation


Seacombe Heights SA, Australia

29th May 2019

Have started trenching for a Versatone retaining wall we're building, wan't someone to finish the trenching off before i get someone in to lay the blocks. I still need to trench approx 15m length at 450mm x 300mm in soft-ish ground. Then finish off other areas i've started (hard soil/rock) to get the trenches to the required size. Only 1m or so side access to house so likely pick and shovel work. Hit some rock in places, so if have access to a rock breaker mention that in your offer. Experience in similar retaining wall preparation also a bonus. Have budgeted for 6 hours initially, will increase as required depending on how long expect to take

Thanks for digging the footings for the retaining wall! Surprised you managed to get through with such narrow access, but you found a way (just!!)

Digging trenches and manual weeding


Forreston SA 5233, Australia

27th Mar 2019

I need a few shallow trenches / holes dug (for putting new plants in) and a whole lot of weeding done - removing grass mainly. No shortcuts, just sitting down and pulling unwanted things out of the ground. Updated details : Trenches for rows of bulbs Holes for shrubs Removing grass from Vega patch Removing grass from everywhere else Digging up and replanting bulbs EXtras for the right tasker : Small shed erection Preparing large holes for trees Pruning Photos to come

Definitely a great worker, very knowledgeable and hardworking. Would use again.
