Hardy Green - Canbera Blend Turf is ideal for Canberra, Yass, Cooma, Goulburn and surrounding area.
It is a blend of Tall Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass. A multi purpose grass for people who want good quality turf at an affordable price. It was specifically developed to withstand our harsh climate of estreme temperatures and frosts. It stays green all year round and does not "brown off" over winter.
It is suitable for almost any site, level or sloped and can be successfully laid any time of the year. It feels soft underfoot and yet withstands the rigorous demands of an active outdoor lifestyle.
Canberra Blend is also available with Clover - 5% O'Conner's strawberry Clover added. The inclusion of O'Conner's Strawberry Clover automatically adds nitrogen to your soil and helps deter scarab grub.
Kenda is a greatly improved, fast establishing form of Kikuyu turf with a great drought and wear tolerance. It is lower cost turf option with a good winter colour compared to some other grasses, and it doesn't seed like common kikuyu. It is not recommended around gardens that don't have hard edges, but if you have a large dog, or active kids, Kenda is a good high wear tolerance option. Kenda prefers full sun, or at the most light shade.
It has good disease tolerance, less vertical growth if left unmown for a period, and has a dark green colour and leaf texture.
(Note: all information regarding turf options is a summary guide only. Make sure you research your options based on the area and wear your lawn will get).
Nara Native is an all purpose, beautiful native lawn. Zoysia macrantha is a native coastal grass that is naturally found on the east coast of Australia. This means that Nara Zoysia perfectly siuts the tough Australian climate. It can handle hot, dry climates, humid climates, and cold (even Canberra). Its ability to work Australia-wide makes Nara turf the perfect complement for any native garden or landscape.
Nara Native turf is a no-fuss lawn - it needs less mowing than Buffalo, Couch and Kikuyu varieties. Less edging is another benefit, as there will be a smaller chance of it invading your garden.
A Nara lawn needs two fertiliser applications per year with slow release fertilizer , or more if it is subject to a lot of wear. See naranative.com.au for more informative on care.
Shade Tolerance - Recommended for up to 50% shade in areas with low wear and up to 30% shade in areas with moderate to high wear.
Drought Tolerance - Excellent drought tolerance. It thrives in hot, humid and desert areas.
Cold Tolerance - Excellent cold tolerance. Tested down to -12 degrees Celcius.
Outcompetes weeds. Nara turf is very good at competing with weeds. You can also use any chemicals that work with Couch. Nara is much better that Buffalo with chemicals. For example you can take out Paspalum with a selective spray.
Less thatch. It is a fine textured lawn, but scalps less than Couch when mown.
Establishment. It takes approximately 2-3 weeks to establish. Avoid laying in colder months, as it will not establish well.

Introduction to Masonary Products:
Masonry products are by their nature both porous and have a reactive surface. The porosity varies from manufacture to manufacture and even between products made by the same company. This means any liquid placed on the surface will travel into the paver with less porous (more dense) pavers taking a little more time than the more porous paver. Because pavers are very porous this creates a large surface area within the paver that reacts with and holds onto liquids that enter the paver eg. Red Wine, cooking oil, sunscreen lotion etc. Once in the paver these stains are very difficult to remove.
Similarly if pavers are being grouted then grout smears is difficult to remove for all the above reasons and additionally the grout material is similiar to the body of the paver.
Sealing is important to protect your pavers by putting a layer of "resin" on the surface of the masonry material to insulate it from permanent staining. Sealing will not stop your pavers from getting dirty but will make them easier to clean and help prevent permanent marking of the paver. Sealing is an investment to protect your substantial capital outlay in your new and attractive paved area.
Selecting an Appropriate Cleaner:
Pavers should be dry and clean before sealing. The typical stains and marks you may need to remove before sealing includes efflorescence, organic stains, mineral stains and rubber tyre marks. Envirnonex had developed an appropiate cleaner for each of these stain types.
EFFLORESCENCE is the appearance of white salts on the surface of the paver which are left behind after moisture carrying dissolved salts from the bedding material or from inside the body of the paver evaporates from the heat of the sun. This is why it is important to use road base, washed alluvial sand or a concrete base upon which to lay pavers and not crusher dust which is a major and continuing source of dissolved salts contributing to efflorenscence. Efflorescence is removed with Environex Anti Eff, a special mix of acids that will not harm the pavers. Simply wet the paver, apply Anti Eff that has been diluted with water at 1 to 25 for 30 seconds, brush gently with nylon brush for 30 seconds and wash off with copious amounts of fresh water and neutralize the area for any residual acid with a weak alkaline solution. A weak solution of kitchen sink washing detergent would be suitable.
ORGANIC STAINS include mould, algae, tannin stains from leaves and twigs, bird and bat droppings and timber stains from furniture. We recommend Environmex Maestro, a strong bleaching compound. Dilute 1 part Maestro to 4 parts water and apply directly to the stain after removing any bulk material from the bird or bat droppings. Leave for approximately 20 minutes and the stain will disappear. Wash off the area with fresh water and repeat if the stain persists.
MINERAL STAINS are typically dirt from surrounding areas such as red or black soil, grout smear from grouting the pavers and rust stains from metal objects left on the pacer surface. To remove these marks we recommend Environex Anti Eff.Use the same process as decscribed for treating efflorenscence.
RUBBER TYRE MARKS are removed by applications of S21 Multi Purpose Cleaner direct to the mark, leave for two minutes, scrub with a nylon brush and wash off with water.
BAN RUST is a remarkable blend of mildly acidic cleaning agents designed to easily and rapidly remove bore water and rust stains from most surfaces.
CLEANING AFTER SEALING to maintain the pavers we recommend Environex Refresh. Refresh is designed for use in cold, warm or hot water and will remove and clean food deposits, general dirt, soil and grime build up and will prevent transfer of these soiling agents to other areas such as carpets etc. by foot traffic. Sweep before cleaning, dilute Refresh in warm or hot water at the rate of 20mls Refresh per litre of water and mop or brush onto the surface and mop or hose off after cleaning and allow to dry.
Selecting an Appropriate Sealer:
There are two types of Sealers:-
Penetrating Sealers protect the paver from the inside out. On application they move through the surface and coat the paver immediately below the surface with a protective resin coating. They generally have the characteristic of not changing the surface colour of the paver or the surface texture. The paver will look the same after sealing as it does before sealing. Penetrating sealers also allow the paver to breathe so water vapour can escape from within the paver.
Topical Sealers protect the paver at the surface by having a resin coat across the top of the paver. They generally have the characteristics of darkening the pavers appearance often referred to as giving the paver a "wet look". This is more pronounced on darker coloured pavers. As topical sealers cover the paver surface they generally do not allow the paver to breathe and care should be used if the area has a frequent source of moisture coming to the surface below the paver.
Topical sealers, depending on the sealer that is chosen, the porosity of the paver and the surface texture of the paver, can result in a slippery surface when wet. Check with your Environex supplier for advice on this matter.
Environex has a wide range of both penetrating and topical sealers developed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions. These are described in the coloured brochure Environex Sealing and Cleaning Guide. Discuss your requirements with the staff at Wholesale Sleeper Co so we can guide you in making the correct decision. Generally 1 Litre of sealer will cover 5m2 with 2 coats.
Sealer for Retaining Wall (Segmented masonry block) Environex Clear Seal is a water based penetrating sealer that is easily applied and will keep the wall free from mould growth for up to 4 years and make the rough face easy to clean. 1 litre is sufficient for about 7m2 and only one coat is required.
As Environex does not know all the circumstance in your situation - they recommend you test a small area first to confirm the suggested procedure and to refine your technique. All Technical Bulletins are available on the Environex website - just click on sealers. Please observe safety instructions on the label.

Tuscan Seal TSL is a penetrating sealer formulated to seal and protect all natural, man-made stone and masonry products. Tuscan TSL is a natural sealer that may alter the appearance on some very dense stone but will not alter the texture of the surface and will not create a slippery finish. Tuscan TSL is therefore recommended as a sealer around pools, on paths, sloping driveways and on any surface requiring a non-slippery finish. Always test first. Available in 2 litre bottles.
Endure is a solvent based acrylic resin designed to give a wet look to surfaces where it is applied. It is typically associated with the gloss look of slate floors. Endure can be applied to Slate, Sandstone and most types of pavers. It is not suitable for Terracotta or very dense surfaces such as Porcelain. To apply be sure that the surface is clean and dry. Always do a test patch especially on floors where an unknown sealer has been used. If any strange reaction happens call Enironex for advice.
Hi Lite is a sealer that provides a darkening of the surface without the normal slippery surface that can result (in most cases). It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and is best suited for pavers where a darker look is desired.
Synergy is a new generation penetrating liquid that consolidates, hardens and binds the surface of the porous and friable masonry materials. Synergy also possesses premium penetrating sealer properties to ensure maximum protection of the stone from permanent staining. Synergy has been scientifically developed and laboratory tested against Australian Standards. Synergy has been developed especially for use around all swimming pools to assist in prevention of salt attack and is warranted for a period of 2 years.
Penetrating Plus is a solvent low cost sealer providing protection for 1-2 years.
Concrete Transformations - Charcoal Tint is designed to give tired old paving or concrete a new lease of life. Do not seal under 10 degrees or over 30 degrees. Simply add 1700g of Charcoal Tint to a 20 Litre drum of Endure, Stir well and apply with an Environex Lambswool Applicator and see the difference (First coat add 4 litre of Cyclone to 20 Litres of Endure).

All profile heights above 185mm it is recommended 1/3 of the edging to be buried in the ground.
Lenghts with the profile of 150mm and below, all angles can be bent on site. All profile heights 185mm and above require the purchase of corner pieces.
All profile heights can be curved to a radius of 800mm on site. Tight Curves, special angles and custom work - please call us for help and pricing.
Stakes come in 8 different sizes. Default is 3 stakes per length, but it is recommended 4 stakes per length for straight runs of 230mm profile height and above.
The general rule is the stake is to be twice as long as the profile height (eg 185mm profile height use the 400mm stakes).
When using the 390mm and 580mm lengths for retaining purposes it is recommended that the stakes be concreted in.
Place the connector on your leading end prior to connecting both lenghts.
If working to a line, set pegs approx 1000 above your finished height so you can tap the lengths down to achieve an accurate and solid finish.
When connecting the lengths together use a clamp on the connection joint to make joining even more of a breeze.

Single Axle Trailer
Dual Axle Trailer
Please CHECK YOUR TYRES prior to loading.
Trailers must be a suitable size and type for their intended tasks.
The loaded mass of the trailer must not exceed the lesser of:
The minimum braking system for a trailer depends on the type of trailer, its weight and the weight of the vehicle:
It is important that trailers are not overloaded and that loads are properly secured to or contained within the trailer.
A load must not project more than 150mm beyond the trailers width or be more than 2.5m overall width, whichever is less.
Loads that project more than 1.2m behind a trailer must have a red flag attached to the end of the load. This flag must be at least 300 mm square and clearly visible. To avoid having an overhanging load, you should purchase a trailer that suitably contains the load.
Overall length of the vehicle and trailer combination including its load must not be more than 19m.
To reduce sway, heavy loads should be concentrated toward the centre of the trailer.
Loads should be kept as low as possible to the axle of axles with about 60% of the total weight forward of the centre of the axle or axles. As a general rule, about 5-10% of the total mass of the trailer plus load should be supported by the vehicle through the coupling. The trailer drawbar should be level or slightly ‘nose down’
