Car parking signs in spotlight District council starts review as frustration grows „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding CAR PARKING signage across Selwyn is to come under scrutiny. A district council review will determine how enforceable the time-limit signs it has in place actually are. District councillors met last week to discuss how car-parking issues in high-usage business areas are being handled. Mayor Sam Broughton said the review will examine if the signs are in the right locations, if the time-limits need changing and if signs are there for historical reasons or not. “Parking wardens were discussed as one of the options but first we want to get a stock take of what the extent of our current signage is and whether it can be enforced,” he said. The district council prefers to take an educational approach to change behaviours and issues infringement notices if necessary. When asked by Selwyn Times how many infringement notices have been issued in the past five years, the district council did not have data

available. Mr Broughton said he was not expecting to see a report on signage until the end of the year. Lincoln Club president and Hammer Hardware owner Lynn Townsend said the review is urgently needed.

“They have got to do something. The parking problem is getting worse and worse in Lincoln,” he said. While Lincoln would eventually need parking wardens he wasn’t sure if it was necessary yet.

It comes as more pressure is put on car-parking in business areas. The Black Door Bar and Eatery in Lincoln put up clamping and tow away signs on council 120 minute restricted parking signs outside its Robert St several

weeks ago. The business and council are in dispute over usage of 12 parallel car parks in Robert St. The issue remains unresolved and neither party will discuss it with the Selwyn Times. The clamping signs have been taken down. Mr Broughton said The Black Door situation was not discussed at Wednesday’s meeting. District councillors Craig Watson, John Morten and Murray Lemon did not see the need for enforcement in their main townships. Cr Watson said while he did not think parking wardens were needed for Rolleston at the moment, there may be a time when it is needed as the township grows. Cr Lemon said he could not foresee a time when Leeston would need parking wardens. •Car park funding plan, pg 7 •HAVE YOUR SAY: Is a review of the district council’s car parking signage urgently needed?

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

News............................. 3-12

THE DISTRICT council has shifted into second gear as it looks into its car parking policy. The 5min, 30min and 120min car parks in the commercial areas of the district are not policed. Up until now, it hasn’t been too much of a problem. People come and go and usually everyone is happy. But with more business moving into the district to service the booming population and car parks at a premium, feathers are being ruffled. Selwyn Times lifted the lid on the issue with the Black Door bar in Lincoln and its wheelclamping sign saga several weeks ago. The issue between the business and district council over 12 car parks in Robert St is unresolved. But the issue is wider than that and a district-wide review is under way as we report on page 1. – Barry Clarke

Barton Fields rental angers neighbours

Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A SIX bedroom rented house in an up market Lincoln subdivision is at the centre of a row which could shape the future of the district’s planning rules. Residents living in Carnaveron Dr, Barton Fields, have complained to the district council about the property they claim is a boarding house. The property is owned by a Lincoln University student Harry Crawford, who is currently back in Auckland where he is originally from. It is tenanted by students and professionals. Residents say there is no issue with noise but say the property is generally untidy. Under the current district plan the house is defined as a dwelling and complies with residential activity rules. The district council’s environmental services manager Tim Harris said the district plan does not have a definition of a boarding house. The district plan is under review and Mr Harris has not ruled out potential changes in

this area. Residents want similar-styled houses to be prevented from popping up throughout the district without notification. They are calling for a boarding house definition to be placed in the district plan. Mr Crawford said he did not want to upset residents and had done a lot of work to get the house up to standard to look like a residential home. He said the driveway has adequate car parking for the number of rooms in the house

and the landscaping is being done in spring which is a more suitable time to do it. “We haven’t had a single noise complaint since we have been there. We have been friendly, hospitable and we are not there to upset people and it is never going to be a party house,” he said. Next door neighbour Joan Mawson, one of the residents who has complained, said it wasn’t a witch hunt against Mr Crawford. Mrs Mawson and other

nearby residents Kate MacLean and Lin Tian said they would not have bought sections if they knew the rental house was being built. They were angry at the businessman who sold the section to Mr Crawford. The house sits on the boundary of the Barton Fields subdivision currently under development by Faulks Investments Ltd. Managing director Tony Faulks said the house should not have been authorised by the district council. In Christchurch last year, The Ilam and Upper Riccarton Residents’ Association successfully lobbied for the Christchurch City Council replacement district plan to have a boarding house definition, to stop loose “rent a room” arrangements. This meant a resource consent was required before a boarding house could be established. • HAVE YOUR SAY: Does there need to be a definition of a boarding house in the district plan?

Garry Birch

Fisherman, hunter and now Birchy’s

Your Local Views Garry Birch, 79, has just been made a life member of the Lincoln Club. He spoke to Georgia O’ConnorHarding about his time with the club, his transport company and fishing in remote, crocodile-infested Australia How did you come to be involved with the Lincoln Club? We had a transport business. It was E Birch and Sons those days. We carted potatoes and stuff like that when we grew them on the old Lincoln Club grounds to raise funds to help with its construction. Our company started to build the club on Edward St and that is what has happened. We were involved in building the car parks and driveway. The first meetings we had was initially at our house in Lincoln. It was called the Ellesmere Country Club back then. I have been there since day one virtually. What caused the name to be changed? They changed the name about eight years after we had the club going I think. The district council bought our site. Now we have got the club in the pub of The Famous Grouse.

When were you given life membership? On Sunday at an annual meeting. It was given to me by the Lincoln Club president Lynn Townsend. Have you lived in Lincoln all your life? Not yet, I am not dead yet. No, I have. I was born and bred there. What kept you here all that time? Probably the family business. It is a good town. I quite like it so I suppose that is why we have stayed. It is not so quiet now. There are a lot of new faces and people. Things have changed over the years. It is a lot busier but I don’t mind it. It is always a challenge which is good. Tell me a bit more about the family business you have run? It was started by my grandfather in 1908. My brother and I bought it off my father and

his brother. About seven years ago I got out of the business and my brother sold it out to Ellesmere Transport Co Ltd. It got too competitive for us to stay in business.

a life member of the Lincoln Club For 22 years. I love it, it is excellent. Have you got any exciting tales? Not really, I have seen a few snakes and we do a bit of shooting. We get the odd wild pig and feral cats. The feral cats eat all the wildlife up there apparently, and they want to try get rid of them because they are a menace. It is a bit different in New Zealand. Them and the dingoes of course – they get shot too. I like hunting, fishing and shooting and so forth while I could still do it. I don’t shoot as much anymore. I mainly fish. What is the most exciting fish you have ever caught? The barramundi – we have caught them up to 1.2m long. They are quite a big fish. Was it a battle reeling it in? They fight quite a bit. It takes a while, but when we get them into the boat they get tired quickly. They are one of the better fish for taste. They are as good as New Zealand or Chatham Islands blue cod. We go over to Chatham Islands every second year to fish. My sons go snorkelling for crayfish. I have snorkelled a bit. We have caught groper over

there. We’ve been doing that for 12 years. Have you ever caught anything weird like an octopus? We have had an octopus climb on board at one stage. They are terrible things. They climb under seats and are terrible to get out. Mind you it wasn’t big but still a menace. It was caught on the line. Once it latched onto the boat it climbed on board. They are pretty slimy sort of things. You travel a bit with your fishing. Is there anywhere else? We have been to Stewart Island and Fiordland as well. Is there anywhere you like to go fishing in Selwyn? I think in the Selwyn River a few trout are caught. My boys

used to fish that years ago. We have been out on Lake Ellesmere and caught flounders. I hear you had a re-union last week? These guys were in the New Brighton Power Boat Club. My older brother and I used to race them but he passed away three months ago. There were about 17 of us. We met up, had a couple of beers and food at Trevinos. Peter Knight was one of the racing guys we were with. He has been a world champion. We raced at New Brighton by the estuary. We used to meet every year. Last year they said we are going to meet every six months because one or two are starting to tip over. Since the last meeting two have passed

away. One was my brother and the other was a cousin of mine. Do you have any other hidden talents? In my younger days I used to play ice hockey. I played for Canterbury and was a New Zealand representative as well. We were going to go overseas to Canada and the United States but the money was the thing that held us up in those days. It was too costly for a young fella. How did you meet your wife? Actually my second wife. We celebrated 36 years last Thursday. She is a local girl from Springston

South. We met at the Springston Hotel. Are there any other projects you have on the go? I do the odd jigsaw puzzle. I am waiting for the summer so I can get a lawn down and a couple of fences up. We are in a new house. Our other house got knocked over in the earthquake. We have been living in a portacom for five years. It hasn’t been easy but we got what we wanted and that is the main thing. That is what happens with insurance companies. You are forever battling them.

Joint developer/council car park plan given okay Fashion „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A PLAN for joint developerdistrict council funding for commercial car parking has been endorsed by Selwyn businesses. The district council is considering to partially support the cost of constructing car parks for new businesses. A report on the funding was put to Pat the property comMcEvedy mittee earlier this month. It comes after the district council was approached by a developer in Lincoln asking if it would consider developing car parks in conjunction with them. This was because their development would use the entire site leaving no room for car parking. The district council would not provide the name of the developer to the Selwyn Times. The standard approach is for the developer to provide their own car parking. But the report said there are

financial benefits to a joint approach. Car-parking between The Laboratory and the Lincoln Library and Service Centre is a good example of this. The Laboratory owner Martin Bennett said sharing the car park has worked well. “The district council provides the land, we pay for construction. They are not exclusively ours but we get to use them,” he said. Mr Bennett said district council funding car parks is essential. There is no time line on when the district council will make a decision or on how much funding it will allocate. But councillor Pat McEvedy said he hopes a decision will be made as soon as possible. At a recent district council meeting, Mr McEvedy called for a district-wide policy to ensure businesses across Selwyn were treated the same. In September, Selwyn Times reported a petition from Lincoln business owners was presented to the district council to stop cycleways on either side of

Gerald St from being installed. Lincoln Club president Lynn Townsend, who organised a petition, said he welcomed the idea to have the district council partially fund businesses’ new car parks. “Sense may be finally starting to prevail . . . the very fact they are considering some form of contribution towards provision of car parking in Lincoln is definitely step in the right direction,” he said. The Lincoln Pantry owner Phillippa Boa was also in support of the funding. She said her business on Robert St shares about nine car parks with four other shops. But Mrs Boa said the planned cycleway through Lincoln is the biggest threat to businesses and owners have a united front an alternative route needs to be put in place.

Your Local Views of Blakes Rd becoming a cul-de-sac will have minimal impact on traffic turning right onto Shands. This road has only got busier and I have witnessed a number of accidents on this corner. As mentioned in your article, there have already been fatalities at this intersection. When there is a queue of six to eight cars in the morning wanting to turn right on to Shands Rd, some cars will turn left, go down Shands Rd, then do a U-turn, which doesn’t help the people turning right. I look forward to any feedback on this.

Readers respond to the Selwyn Times’ article on the water meeting held recently:

News

Jan and John Zervos – Revisit the book Selwyn From the Hills to the Sea, published in 1997 by the Ellesmere Camera Club with the backing of the district council. We are now 2017, 20 years exactly have passed. The book makes one aware of the massive acceleration of damage to our waterways since its publishing. Dairying and unbridled growth in what were until very recently small country towns are the main driving forces. Interestingly the book also gives an insight to a possible agenda for certain business conglomerates to be in favour of Lake Ellesmere/Te Waihora complete demise, opening it up for another use. The air in Lincoln tonight reeked of what smelled like raw sewage. It’s really a question of whether we continue our complicity with a system obsessed with computer models, data collecting and forever talking in circles at meetings which are all really just delaying actions, or do we not?

Fashion dangerous intersections in New Zealand:

Gardening

Chris Bartram – As a resident of Jones Rd, whose property has been damaged by cars twice in the last six months, and also a keen cyclist – the fix for cutting the accident rate on this quite narrow access road is simple. Lower the speed limit to 80km/h which will get the trucks and rat runners off this stretch of road and onto the Main South Rd (50m away).

Motoring Readers respond to the article on Selwyn having some of the most

intersection. I turn right from Blakes to Shands Rd heading east every morning. This is an extremely dangerous intersection, getting worse with the traffic coming in from Lincoln. This will get worse again with the new interchange under construction, with even more traffic wanting to turn right from Blakes onto Shands, trying to access the interchange. Suggestions are: To make Blakes Rd an underpass under Shands Rd, and to swing around, merging back on to Shands Rd. Roundabout traffic lights. I see that the north end

David Snook – Shands Rd has become a major thoroughfare for residents of the expanding areas around Lincoln and Rolleston (among others), so in addition to increased traffic volumes, there are increased numbers joining and leaving Shands Rd. Contributors to the “problem” include: Visibility. Vehicles without lights during periods of poor/ challenging light conditions (sunset/rise, fog etc.). A vehicle approaching you out of the gloom is an unlit, dark coloured vehicle which surely should be the first to switch-on for their own safety. The failure of motorists to stop at stop signs. Motorists who fail to indicate their intentions with adequate timing. Failure to

maintain appropriate following distances – especially when road conditions (wet) demand it. Poor choice of route; there are multiple points where you can join Shands Rd, some intersections are busier and are perhaps not the best choice. Right turns are particularly troublesome, perhaps some intersections should have “no right turn” status. Slow moving (farm vehicles for example) should be “discouraged” from using high-flow roads during peak travel times. Due to the number of intersections and driveway entrances, Shands Rd should be considered for “no passing lines”. Selwyn District Council chief executive David Ward – Your Soap Box correspondent Caitlin Miles (August 15, Long wait is almost over) has challenged the district council to provide public transport services for smaller townships. We would like to clarify for your readers that the planning and provision of public transport in the Canterbury region is the responsibility of the regional council, Environment Canterbury. Selwyn District Council staff and elected members continue to advocate for improvements in the provision of public transport in our district.

Volunteer firefighters simply want to help The district is fortunate to have huge numbers of volunteers committing significant time to help clubs, organisations and causes. Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade chief fire officer Jeremy Greenwood explains why firefighters do their bit to help I’M CONSTANTLY amazed at the support volunteer firefighters in the district receive from the public. As chief of the Lincoln brigade I see it every week. I’m unsure the exact reasons but suspect it has a good deal to the fact that fires, emergencies and natural disaster do seem to affect us all. People value the time, commitment and family sacrifice that our firefighters make to help our community. I was once asked by a woman visiting the Lincoln fire station: “Is there a typical time that the alarm goes off?” Before I could answer one of my colleagues interrupted: “Usually dinner time or kids’ bath time!” The comment was made in jest, but the message was simple; you never know when the alarm will sound but it’s often at an inconvenient time.

The fire alarm can go at any time of the day or night, 365 days of the year. The amount of weekly training we are required to undertake is astounding and added to that are additional weekend specialist courses that we’re required to attend or choose to attend. We’re constantly involved in formal initiatives to educate children about fire safety and this sees our crews regularly visiting schools, pre-schools, Cubs, Scouts, Guides and so forth. We also work hard to ensure the fire safety messages get through to other groups within our community; farmers, the elderly, landlords and tenants and the disadvantaged. This help could be as simple as alerting people that they could be eligible for subsidised home smoke alarms, and then installing them at no cost. So, why do we do it? It’s challenging, rewarding and a great way to meet people within the community. Most of all, we simply want to do our bit to help.

Young musicians gear up for Bandquest PUPILS ACROSS Selwyn primary schools are gearing up to unleash their inner music talent for a national band competition. West Melton School, Rolleston School and Prebbleton School will take part in Rockshop Bandquest, a nationwide music contest for intermediate and primary pupils. The regional contest involving schools across Canterbury is to start today and run to Thursday. West Melton has already performed a pre-concert for its school in preparation. The school was given a preview from its band performing Ed Sheeran hits Castle on the Hill

and How Would You Feel. Rockshop Bandquest director Glenn Common said often the competition is the band’s first experience on a fully set-up stage with a light-show and professionally mixed sound. “They’re performing to their peers and families, which puts them under a little bit of pressure, but in a supportive environment,” he said. The Canterbury section of Rockshop Bandquest will be held from today through to Thursday, 7pm, at various locations. Tickets cost $10. For more information go to http://www.bandquest. co.nz/regions

News New irrigation system for domain

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE BACK-FIELDS of the Lincoln Domain are out of action while a new automated irrigation system is installed. But the fields are set to be re-opened in time for the cricket season in October. The district council has decided to install the new irrigation system in a bid to fight the dry weather. The installation of the second stage of the system began last week. The first part of the $161,061 project was completed earlier this year, with the front fields now irrigated under an automated system. “We have already noticed grass growth and cover in the condition of the front fields,” Lincoln Event Centre manager Ginny Bowden said. She said the fields previously had to be manually watered meaning moving the irrigator up to three times a day during dry conditions. The new system aims to save time, money and labour.

Flemington booming SUCH HAS been the demand for sections at Lincoln’s Flemington subdivision, that the developers are pushing ahead quickly with opening new stages to cater for this interest. Shane Kennedy, developer of Flemington, said that stages one to four and 14 are already sold, stage six almost sold and stage eight is selling rapidly. “We only put stage eight on the market a couple of months ago and already we have sold half of the 42 available sections. This means that we have had to start planning the proposed stage 10 earlier than expected,” he said. Set on 58ha, Flemington subdivision is planned for 650 sections, half of which have already been sold. “With its proximity to Christchurch, established schools and businesses, Flemington has attracted a diverse range of homeowners, from those looking to build their first homes to the more mature retirees, attracted by the sense of community and wonderful scenic views that Flemington offers. “The comments we are receiving from those buying

All materials will be provided. The classes will interest those who are keen to relax, enjoy, share experiences and socialise while stimulating the mind through creative expression. Sessions will take place at the Rolleston Community Centre on Thursdays from 1.30–2.30pm, beginning 31 August, with the final class on 28 September.

On the roads this week ON THE ROADS

New Zealand’s first PGC Smart Playground has opened this week right here in Selwyn, bringing a new kind of fun to Levi Park, Rolleston. The park has been transformed into a PGC Smart Playground as part of a 90-day trial aimed at bridging the gap between digital and physical play. New Zealand company Playground Centre (PGC) has exclusive rights to the North American Biba technology that powers the play. At Levi Park six augmented reality markers are now attached to the existing playground equipment which can be easily scanned by parents and children to activate mini-games and unlock new play content aimed at three to nine-year olds. The games can be downloaded free – search for ’playbiba’ in the App Store or on Google Play. To play, the parent holds their phone with a Biba game open, issuing playful instructions based on an imaginary premise (like, ‘you’re a secret agent!’) while the child follows them. The child spends most of their session time playing away from the phone on playground equipment based on game directives. They then return to the phone intermittently to perform a game function, complete a mini game or advance their progress through the game’s imaginary scenario.

Upgrade work at the intersection of Hoskyns Road and Sandy Knolls Road is continuing. Traffic approaching from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop for Hoskyns Road traffic. Care is needed when driving through the site.

Construction of a right turn bay is continuing at the intersection of Dynes Road and Springston Rolleston Road, with traffic controls in place at this location. Care is needed when driving through the site. Flooding repairs are occurring on Zig Zag Road, Leaches Road and Hororata Bridge. Unsealed road maintenance is occurring on Curries Road, Gilmours Road and Tramway Road (Sheffield/ Springfield). Traffic controls will be operating at all sites. Footpath repairs will be occurring on Coaltrack Road (Coalgate), Hoskyns Road (Rolleston) and in West Melton Reserves. These footpaths will be closed. Culvert work is occurring on Pig Saddle Road and Malvern Hills Road. Sewer line installation work is continuing on Hamptons Road, Shands Road and Selwyn Road with the berm tidy up to be completed.

The Smart Playground combines digital fun and physical play as a way to help decrease screen time among children and ensure healthy, outdoor play. Head to Levi Park and try it out for yourself!

Are you signed up to Selwyn Gets Ready? Selwyn Gets Ready is a purpose built online system where residents can securely record their contact details and any special needs, resources and skills they want to share to help their local community look after each other in an emergency. It allows the Council and Civil Defence to share emergency alerts, such as wind, snow, fire warnings, water quality warnings and other messages with members. They arrive as email and/or text. Currently around 7,000 Selwyn households are signed up. To sign up visit selwyn.getsready.net and follow the prompts. Remember, in most emergencies it’s best to stay in your own home if it is safe to do so. But that may mean being without power and water or any way to get supplies for three days or more. Ask yourself: Do you have enough food? What about family members who need medication? Do you have enough food for pets to get through too? And remember three key points: · Light up – Your emergency supplies don’t have to be in a kit, but you might have to find them in the dark. Make sure everyone knows where the torches and batteries are. · Fridge first – If the power goes out, eat the food from your fridge first, then your freezer, before you eat the food in the cupboard or your emergency kit. · Know your neighbours – Get to know your neighbours. In an emergency they may need your help or you may need their help, and you may be able to band together to get through.

The students will have the opportunity to watch events such as the rowing, track and field, netball, rugby, diving and more. While this is an exciting opportunity to see international sport competed at the highest level, the benefits to the students are much bigger than that. This will be an unforgettable trip which will provide adventure, challenge, personal growth and inspiration.

Local manufacturer leads in innovative products Few companies are as proactive in research and development as local Rolleston business, Custom Made Garage Doors. Two recent releases are their architecturally designed, Flush Mounted garage door and the Weatherline Sectional Garage Door. These complement an already impressive range of products. The unique Flush Mounted Garage Door is manufactured to blend seamlessly, at the sides and above the door with exterior wall cladding; whether the exterior is Cedar, Alucobond, flat panel, negative detail or another material. This creates a clean look making it particularly suitable for architecturally designed homes. This design has been extremely popular with Custom Made Garage Doors supplying customers throughout New Zealand, especially homes in Central Otago around Wanaka and Queenstown. For those wanting a Cedar look, the Weatherline Sectional Garage Door is great for those wanting a weatherboard look yet low maintenance finish, designed to resemble a 150mm fold weatherboard profile. Other products in Custom Made Garage Doors’ range include: • glass and acrylic sectional doors, • flat panel sectional doors, • negative detail sectional and multi-rib

doors, • the popular negative detail Smartline flat panel sectional garage door, • flush mounted doors that fit neatly and are almost invisible when shut, • plywood doors, and • roller and tilt doors. With over 50 colours to choose from standard to the large range of powder coat colours, matching your home’s exterior décor will not be a problem. People who spend time in their garage will also be pleased to know that Custom Made Garage Doors can insulate many of their garage doors, and retrofit insulation into existing doors. Insulating the garage door is a great way to increase the warmth in this area of the home while keeping it cooler in summer. It also makes it stronger and quieter in operation, especially with a Merlin Whisper auto door opener, which is belt driven and comes with a battery back-up in case of power cuts, something that can be a problem at times in the district. For smoother operation and a longer life, it is a good idea to have your garage door serviced every two years, something that Mal and the team at Custom Made Garage Doors can take care of, along with looking after any needed repairs.

Still locally owned and headed by this powerhouse team who have a passion for providing the personal touch and knowing their customers by name, Greg and Helen pride themselves on looking after every customer’s individual requirements.

“Juice Electrical represents a fresh new change. It’s exciting, vibrant and the name really stands out,” says Helen. “Our commitment to our customers remains the same with our new name reflecting the energy we put into every job.” The idea for choosing the name Juice Electrical, was sparked by a client builder who called one morning requesting more ‘juice’ to run his floor sanders. Juice Electrical will still provide a full range of services that includes wiring new and existing houses, garden lighting, kitchen refits, Mitsubishi heat pump installations, setting up spa pools, internet and telephone installations, fitting television aerials, office refits, industrial installations, and issuing electrical safety certificates.

This explains why their regular customers keep calling them. They know the team will save them time and ultimately money. With Long serving employee, Jason the change to Juice Electrical, Greg and Ngahungahu and owner, Greg Horton. Helen’s commitment to their customers is still the same.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Enhancing your home Over winter, we spend more time indoors and are likely to notice tasks to be done. Paintwork might need touching up. We might consider ways to make the house warmer or how flow could be improved. As spring emerges, we feel energetic and keen to make changes. A fresh coat of paint will lift any part of a home. Renovating outdated bathrooms and kitchens or converting a window to a doorway for access to a deck or patio will increase the value of a home. The latter might be as simple as removing a window’s bottom trim so a door can be installed. Having double glazed windows retro-fitted will also differentiate one home on the market from another, making it more attractive to buyers. When deciding to renovate, unless you have the knowledge and skill, it is best to consult the relevant people such as a designer and tradespeople so work is properly carried out and meets building code. It will also help avoid headaches and costly over-runs.

When replacing a kitchen or installing new cabinetry, request that the manufacturer measures the area on-site so mistakes are avoided which might leave you with units that do not fit the space. Looking to improve your home’s energy efficiency? First, consider how heat is being lost. Insulating a home can make a big difference as can hanging warm drapes, fitting draft stops to doors, and attaching foam stripping around the inner edge of older windows. Check also that window catches are fitting correctly and each window can be shut tight. Installing heat pumps will also make a difference while a log or gas fire will add ambience. Home improvements help preserve and even increase the value of a home while making it a more enjoyable place for those living there.

If replacing a kitchen request an on-site measurement.

Adding an extension is one way to increase space.

An example is when knocking out walls. Those that are load bearing will need to be replaced with beams to support the ceiling and roof and a structural engineer might be required to design an appropriate sized lintel to take the weight. Of course, the power should be disconnected before hacking into a wall and any plumbing considered. If you like your home though find space is an issue, adding an extension may be the answer. This will involve having plans drawn up and applying for local Council consent so consult a draftsperson, who might also suggest A fresh coat of paint will lift a home. some good ideas. Doors to decks increase a home’s value.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Freshen up and restore your garden With spring just around the corner, there is no time to waste in getting the last of the winter garden clean-up completed. Garden beds may need tidying up, fruit trees and roses pruned, and mulch spread around so moisture is retained and plants protected over summer. If there is no time for working in the garden or it is not your thing, Revive Landscaping can take care of this for you. Whether a one-off job to get your outdoor setting shipshape, regular garden maintenance, or staging a garden for a property sale, they will do a professional job. Revive Landscaping specialise in all facets of landscaping and just love garden makeovers. They can simplify a garden for low maintenance or create a Garden of Eden for you. Revitalisation of established gardens where plants are overgrown or there are gaps is their forte. They will remove unwanted plants while

spreading compost and mulch to invigorate the soil so plants flourish. They will also construct and install decks, fences, water features, pergolas, irrigation systems, lighting and artistic features, leaving you to enjoy what is created. Ross has considerable experience in the industry. He has a high level of expertise and can readily interpret landscape plans to ensure that what a client envisaged is achieved. He will also advise clients on the potential for their garden. The versatility of the team at Revive Landscaping and willingness to work with a customer so their outdoor setting is right for them along with the quality service, value for money, solid work ethic, and tidy approach where rubbish is taken away at the end of a job are reasons why customers speak so highly of them. With such a flexible approach and broad skill set, Ross is the perfect person not ripping out the whole garden. Instead, selectively retaining and shaping trees and shrubs, working with the basic structure to put life back into the garden. With a solid knowledge in horticulture you can also be assured that plants will be given just the right amount of space to grow. “I really enjoy revamping a garden whether it’s working with an existing structure or creating something new,” says Ross Legg who owns and operates Revive Landscaping. Ross would rather retain an old tree that has taken years to grow than cut it down, pruning to enhance its branch structure and even adding up-lighting to enhance its beauty.

Under 15 Rugby 2017 Lincoln High School is about to compete in the South Island co-ed Under 15 Tournament being held in Greymouth. The Under 15 rugby team for Lincoln this season is most of the very successful Year 9 and 10 mid-week rugby team, that won the Canterbury mid-week competition and bolstered with a few Year 11 boys that are still Under 15. They have played the Ashburton College Under 15 team and recorded a win. They will also play Rangiora High School and St Andrews College Under 15 teams in warm up games before they travel away. With Lincoln only having one Saturday rugby team the co-ed Under 15 Tournament is a great opportunity for all players who potentially want to play 1st XV rugby for Lincoln High School to experience Tournament rugby and

test themselves as a team against other schools whose teams play together all year. At least five shortened games will be played during the Tournament. Since Lincoln became involved with the co-ed tournament, we have had some great results. This year’s team is very balanced with strong forwards and backs that know how to use the whole width of the field. Quite a few of the players were in last year’s Under 15 team and those players, coupled with many rising stars, we are hoping that this year we will once again make the final. The Lincoln High team was also named the “Best and Fairest” at last year’s Tournament which is a huge accomplishment as it is voted on by all your opponents and the referees.

1st XI Boys Hockey 2017 2017 is proving to be a stellar year for Boys’ Hockey at Lincoln High School. The team leads the competition in its division and recently beat Ashburton College in the annual exchange. The team lacks the star players of yesteryear but makes up for this by playing consistently as a unit. Players range from Year 9 through to Year 13 with a range of skills and experience. The team’s experienced coach, Brent Norton, has focused on skills development and working as a team on the field. Of note is its ability to score goals this season through good finishing in the circle, with few against. Fitness levels are improving and it is pleasing to see the team finish games strongly as the opposition starts to tire. The team will travel to Oamaru this year for Winter Tournament and will again compete for the Coaches Cup. This tournament is always keenly contested but the team is quietly determined to do well this year.

1st XI Boys Football 2017 Lincoln High School’s 1st XI boys’ football team will again attend the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Premier Football Tournament in 2017. This will be the 3rd time in the last 4 years that the boys have qualified for the most prestigious tournament. The tournament will be held in Napier and runs from the 4th to 8th September and features the best schoolboy football teams in the country. The team have had mixed season locally and often did not get the rub of the green in some games. Still the team finished with 6 wins, 3 draw and 3 losses to finish 6th out of 13 in a closely fought round robin competition. The highlight was Lincoln High School again winning the Connetics Challenge 1st XI Football Team Shield with a 3-1 win over St Thomas of with the Connetics Canterbury College. Challenge Shield after defeating St There will be stern competition in Napier Thomas 3-1. with the team in the same pool as Auckland’s St Peters College, Tauranga Boys College and St Patricks College from Wellington. It will be difficult to emulate last year’s 9th place finish, however Captain Mason Stearn has emphasised that anything is possible in tournament football.

Easy to grow echinops

Motoring „„ By Henri Ham

I OFTEN think it can be nice to have some plants in your garden that don’t require much work. Kind of like a set-and-forget approach – once it’s planted it will take care of itself. Echinops ritro, also known as globe thistle, is one of these easy-care plants. It is a hardy plant that tolerates frost and heat, and thrives just about anywhere. And, because it’s a perennial it will stay in your garden a long time. (For beginner gardeners out there, annuals are plants that only last one year or season. Perennials will keep popping up season after season.) Like the name globe thistle suggests, it looks like a round version of a Scottish thistle in that lovely deep blue/purple colour. However, it’s actually a member of the

aster family and not a thistle at all. Which is great, because this means it doesn’t have any spiny prickles. If you have a perennial garden or want to create a cottage garden look, echinops ritro would make a great addition. It looks nice planted amongst other tall, cottage garden-style plants foxgloves, lupin, hollyhocks and delphinium. It also looks lovely grown with coneflower Echinacea in a border – their similar appearances really complement each other. And, if you still need further convincing about growing echinops ritro, bees love it! Once you have seedlings it’s time to look for somewhere to plant them. I recommend making the most of their hardiness and growing them in full sun. Plant each seedling approximately 30cm apart. When they start flowering in early

summer, you can expect to enjoy stunning blooms for around eight weeks. Echinops ritro make good cut flowers and wonderful dried flowers. As dried flowers they can last for years in a good condition. When they’ve finished flowering I sometimes cut them back to around a third of their height. This gets rid of all the

old leaves and encourages the plants to come away stronger the following spring. It will also stop them re-seeding if you do it early enough – when the colour starts to fade in the flower heads. Otherwise it’s fine to take advantage of their easy-care nature and just let them do their thing.

gardening without guesswork Question:

What do I need to do with my citrus plants at this time of year?

Spring is a great time to fertilise your citrus plants, so get prepared now. The spring growth will begin towards the end of September, so you need to make sure that the tree has time to soak up the nutrients so they can fruit and flower.

Answer:

This will give your tree the best opportunity to reward you with juicy lemons, so it pays to not skip this step each season! Citrus have shallow roots, so during their growing and fruit development season, they need plenty of water and fertiliser. They need fertilising 3 times per year; September, December and February. Plants must be wellwatered regularly, especially during the hot dry weather that we get in February and March – as this is when the fruit is developing. Application rate: For trees in the ground, apply at 300 grams per square metre around the outer foliage of the tree (the drip line). If you have trees in pots, you would be using our Intelligro Topdressing Fertiliser at a rate of 1-2 grams per litre of pot size.

The pruning of citrus is usually done just before they start to grow in early September, so now is a great time to do it if you haven’t already. To do this you will thin out the centre of the plant, removing any thin spindly growth. It is also a good idea to trim around the outside, reducing some of the branches so that air can circulate through the plant. As you harvest the fruit, trim back the branches they have come from. This will help to promote future growth.

Outdoor rooms Just because the outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home. With a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood, and remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle.

FOCAL POINT Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room divider for any outdoor living area. Water feature like a pond with beautiful Koi fish can also service as a great outdoor focal point, creating a tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your

outdoor area can overlook.

IN THE ZONE If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls. Create privacy and soften sharp angels. Living walls, an ever-increasing popular vertical plant system, can be either free standing to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moments notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. GO WITH THE FLOW Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bi-fold doors or windows to create a servery or bar for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the very epicentre of the building with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bi-fold doors. FUNCTION OVER FORM Consider what you intend to use your outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on eating outside, there’s no need for a dining table, but buy some comfortable outdoor seating instead, and if you only intend on sitting outdoors during the

evening, then don’t waste money on awnings and umbrellas, and invest the money in an outdoor fireplace which you will actually use. ATMOSPHERE Create unique and personalised outdoor decor with textiles and homewares from your travels, your favourite antique shop, or make your own shell garlands or wreaths from beach holidays. String up fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive mood in the evenings.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Make your new home street smart When choosing a plan, something that is often forgotten is how the house will look from the street. Developers of residential subdivisions generally have covenants relating to this and will require concept drawings along with a landscape plan to be submitted for approval before lodging a building consent application. Their aim is to preserves the quality of the subdivision, something that benefits all who own properties there. Certain claddings may be specified along with range of roof pitch and an expectation for windows on the side of the home facing the street, as well as landscaping that enhances the overall look of the subdivision. To avoid slowing the process down it is best to plan all aspects of your home’s design before seeking developer approval and lodging consent documents with the Council. In viewing the plans for a home, the developer will want to see a street frontage that is attractive. Garages that have plain walls on the street side may be frowned on with a request for changes to be made. There may even be specific requirements in relation to the garage door. Where a street frontage faces north or west, large windows and sliders are likely. When the front of the home faces south so will not capture any sunlight, there may be less desire to include windows however this is often something a developer requires. An option is to incorporate long narrow windows which give a home street presence yet do not compromise interior wall space. Opaque narrow windows can be incorporated into the garage to break a stark wall with the added advantage of providing light while hiding what is inside. Many covenants have clauses relating to the parking of caravans, motorhomes or boats often requiring these not be on view, back from the street, and screened off. The same applies to sheds and other structures. Even the meter box, heating systems and solar panels often need to be out of site from the street.

While plant species may not be required, height, width and an impression of plant types are often expected to be stated, to illustrate the final look. This is something that a landscape designer or nursery can provide help with. The letterbox too may need to be constructed from materials in line with those used on the home. The type of fencing is likely to be stipulated with any high fences to be back from the street and not over a certain height, something that is also reflected in the Selwyn District Council’s best practice guidelines. Take time to read a developer’s covenants before and after purchasing land. If you have any concerns talk to your builder and developer’s representative. It may save you money and time.

Long narrow windows can give a home street presence. Large windows are ideal with north/west street frontages.

Lifestyle, City Fringe + Income!

2 in 2.8ha of blueberries and 0.6ha of gooseberries and located just minutes from the market it serves, the property has an established presence in its market and provides a great income source not often found in lifestyle properties of this calibre. The property is supported by an impressive amount of infrastructure which includes an onsite water storage pond, full overhead irrigation/frost fighting system, a well with consented water take, bird protection netting for blueberries and a fully automated grading, packing and labelling machine. The owners have paid particular attention to developing systems which increase efficiency and productivity on the property and it is in a good position to hand to the next owner. Whether you are looking to downsize from the farm, make a lifestyle change from the city, or have an interest in horticulture, this property is definitely worth your consideration. Call me to arrange a viewing.

With a collapsed contract and vendors committed to selling, you can’t afford to miss out on viewing this unique lifestyle property on the fringe of Christchurch city. Set up a long private drive, the executive style family home offers a meticulously planned design with a high standard of finishing and extras that set it apart from the crowd. Living areas are large and include a centrally located modern kitchen with large island stone bench top and butler’s pantry, separate formal dining area and a generous media/entertainment room complete with a built in bar and projector. Large sliding doors from all living areas provide a seamless transition from inside to out. Bedrooms are all good size doubles with three of the four opening to the north facing balcony. Other extras that enhance every-day life include: ducted heat pump system, log burner with wetback, internal For Sale Price by negotiation plus GST (if any) vacuum system and generous storage spaces. What really sets this property apart from the rest is its involvement in the ever growing berry industry. Planted View www.harcourts.co.nz/RL1744
