Recently moved to the region and currently working on my garden. I would like grow lawn in the garden (size of approx 20m2) but have been advised it's too expensive to maintain considering irrigation costs. Is this true and what are my options? Not looking for a super duper looking grass in this particular area of the garden but more of a wild look. Would appreciate advice soon on this matter as I am trying decide on the way to go by next week. Thanks.
Hello - We are thinking of going away for a month later this year and I'm not keen on leaving the house empty for such a long time. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I don't want to run the risk of coming back to find everything has been stolen. Has anyone here used a house-sitter for situations like ours and how did you find the right person to do the job? Also, what would be typical in terms of remuneration? Looking forward to hearing from you all.
hi does anyone know of a reliable cleaning company in the S'Agaro area ? We would need someone to come in and clean on listed Saturday's between 10-4 pm and from April-October 2016 , take away linen, towels to be washed etc and return them . Many thanks Una
We've been thinking of setting up a (wildlife) pond and wondered if anyone reading the forums has experience of doing this. Information on size, depth, plants..anything welcome. Obviously, i've googled a lot, but theres nothing better than hearing from someone who has "done it themselves".
I had an old barrel as decoration in my house but have found that the metal ring on the base has left some rusty marks on the floor tiles underneath. I've tried scrubbing with hot water and bleach but it didn't have much of an effect. Can any of the forum readers offer an idea of what I can use to get the marks off?
Iam looking to tile over the old floor tiles in my apartment around 90m in size They have passed their sell my date. Has anybody done the same? If so any ideas and help ? Iam looking for a good tiler, who speaks english and will not charge a arm and leg . We are in Pals we are not too far from Estartit.
