Going away these holidays? Consider a remote alerting, self-monitored GSM alarm system for your home, just $999! No need for monitoring service contracts- just use it for whenever you are away, GSM provides a far more reliable service than wifi-based systems so providing excellent peace-of-mind.
Price includes our standard system complete with full battery backed-up panel, motion detectors (2), door sensors (2), and keyfobs (2), installation.
The alarm panel can send texts via SMS to up to three devices alerting you to any motion detection or important updates from the security system as well as remote arming/disarming. Works with any camera system and there are many optional extras to choose from including fire sensors, flammable gasses, perimeter systems, and now the latest technology in fog cannons- if an intruder breaks in you can drive them out of the home from anywhere in the world!

I say #2 as I have written quite a lot about Buckthorn that is rife in Carterton, but have all but eliminated from our property. Now Yarrow. Quite a bit in our lawn and in the berms in Lincoln Road Carterton. Often seen in roadsides when in flower, see pictures below. My research shows it is encouraged overseas and has some redeeming qualities, one is the use of its foliage providing good results on bleeding cuts when no sticking plaster is handy. I have a Lawnboy Sprayer and plan to give my lawn a treatment and have learnt that Dicamba that is in Turfix could have a good result. Hard to remove manually as its rhizomes (heavy stems that grows underground) are hard to remove completely. It was introduced as a component for pastures in New Zealand owing to its high mineral content and drought resistant properties but of course unwanted in our lawns! If anyone has other information to add that could be helpful, let me know.
Hey neighbours, it was great to see so many of you at our live lunch with NZ Home and Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll. Thanks for stopping by :)
If you missed it, you can still drop in for a recap and see if Jo and Naomi answered your questions, here.
