The Dirt – September 2012

Spring has sprung

Well Spring has sprung and the Grass is on the rise as we are heading into better weather – and all the good things that the change of season brings.

To celebrate the kick off into the best part of the year we have a couple of hundred Aussie Hardwood sleepers on sale. First come first served at only $45 00 + GST. That’s a 10% discount off our regular trade price. Standard Mac sleepers are also in all the yards at great prices and more stock is just a phone call away.

Important Information

For walls exceeding the heights detailed, or for retaining walls supporting an additional load eg driveways, buildings, or slopes etc, engineering advice should be sought. Please contact your Engineer or Sales Representative for advice.

In addition, check with your local council for requirements and regulations in your particular area.

Clean fill reminder

A reminder that at Ellerslie and East Tamaki yard we are taking clean fill from dig-outs. This is for Small Concrete (can you pick it up by yourself size), Topsoil, Clay, Turf. No Rubbish, Green-waste or Steel. This is going to a permitted land fill so it can’t have any thing that could contaminate in it.

Staff intros: Jesse and John

Jesse has been with us for nearly 10 years and knows the business inside out and has met all our customers at one time or another. You know him by his easy smile and that nothing is to much of a bother.


John has worked in the business for the past five years entirely at Onehunga and has just taken on a new role within the company. Although still based at the yard he is now out on the road most days. John has visited nearly every school in the area and has a great rapport and manner with the customers.
