Outdoor range. I have recently bought some outdoor fabric from these girls to do up an old outdoor chair. A great way to add some colour and style to a garden setting!
Ecco Landscapes on site at the Aspiring Lifestyle Retirement Village here in Wanaka. It is deadline day for the completion of landscaping of the first four units and I have to say it is looking fantastic. Seeing the transformation over the past few days from dust to mud to ready lawn, I have to keep reminding myself that the team have been working away at this since January of this year. Further landscaping of the other nine units in stage one will follow but it is very rewarding to see some coming to fruition and to give everyone a sense of what a fantastic village this is going to be! I think I am almost ready to retire!..............

New to our streets is Kate Findlay's quaint little shop found behind the little courtyard on Helwick Street in Wanaka. As an interior designer, Kate has recently branched out to offer selected individual pieces for both indoors and out. The selection has a somewhat worldly theme to it and what I like about it is that many of the pieces are true antiques you will be lucky to find anywhere else. Here is a peep look a some of the things she has to offer. It is fantastic to see interesting pieces available for use outdoors, including pots, Indian dye pots, sculpture and old antique balistrades.... Well worth a visit! You can contact Kate on 03 443 4057 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Natural Pool offers clean, chemical free swimming by combining a swimming area and a shallow planted water region - an area given over to aquatic plants which not only oxygenate the water but along with micro-organisms, act as living filters and organic cleansers, naturally and continually filtering the water through their root system.
These 2 areas are separated by a submerged barrier wall but the water still flows between the 2 regions. There is no need for chlorine or any harsh chemicals only the addition of a filter and circulation pump system.
