Playgrounds

getting

equipment

safety

upgrades

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PLAYGROUNDS identified

as having safety issues across

Selwyn are in the process of being

repaired.

The district council is upgrading

playground equipment at domains

including Courtenay, Sheffield and

Waihora.

It comes after a report on

playgrounds across the district,

highlighting equipment in need of

repairs, was compiled in July.

The report was discussed at the

district council’s property committee.

Reserves operations manager

Jonathan Crawford said the majority

of the playground equipment

needing upgrades has since been

repaired.

Key issues were identified at

playgrounds at the Courtenay,

Sheffield and Waihora domains.

The district council manages

more than 70 playgrounds across

the district.

Seven playground items rated

“very poor” and 37 were “poor”.

Mr Crawford said when the

report came out all affected committees

were sent a copy of the material

relevant to their playgrounds.

But the report bench-marked

Selwyn as having an 80 per cent

compliance for its playgrounds.

NEWSPAPERS SHOULD go into bat for

their communities. Stick up for the little

guy.

Star Media (publisher of the Selwyn

Times) has done a lot of this over the years.

We pulled no punches when there was a chance child killer

Peter Joseph Holdem could have been paroled a few years ago.

Keep him in jail, we said.

We forced the Christchurch City Council to do a U-turn over

its decision to close suburban libraries. We fought BP (and won)

when they gave residents the bird in Edgeware. We fought to the

end over the hospital park and ride debacle.

And now success in West Belt, Lincoln (page 4). The district

council is finally sealing pot holes in the street.

Thanks for the help Junior!

Make-up of quarry

advisory group questioned

• By Anan Zaki

RESIDENTS LIVING near a

proposed Fulton Hogan quarry

are now questioning the

make-up of the company’s

community advisory group.

Inquiries by Selwyn Times

have revealed one member of the

advisory group lives 3km from

the proposed 170ha quarry site,

bordering Curraghs, Dawsons,

Jones and Maddisons Rds.

Curraghs Rd resident Simon

Moore, who lives 600m from the

quarry site, slammed the inclusion

of the member.

“What a farce. How can that

person be affected at all?” Mr

Moore said.

Ian Walsh, lives 3km south-east

of the proposed quarry site and is

one of the seven members in the

advisory group. He refused to talk

to the Selwyn Times.

Fulton Hogan said immediate

neighbours are part of the advisory

group. But Fulton Hogan

refused to disclose who and what

organisations are on the advisory

group or comment on whether

they regarded Mr Walsh as an

immediate neighbour.

Selwyn Times is aware the

Weedons Residents’ Association

is part of the group.

The company did not invite all

immediate neighbours to be part

of the group.

Mr Moore said his neighbours

who are immediate neighbours

have not heard of the advisory

group.

Said Fulton Hogan South

Island manager Craig Stewart:

“The group’s composition came

about from neighbours and local

residents’ inquiries and conversations

with Fulton Hogan about

our proposed quarry.”

Mr Stewart said discussion

with the advisory group is part

of the company’s “on-going process

Mr Moore said it was concerning

that the advisory group’s

consultation could be used in

preparing the company’s resource

consent application.

“If somebody is 3km away,

who can’t even see it or hear the

damn thing, how on earth can

they have any constructive input

into it at all?” he said.

“It’s so farcical, that it’s unbelievable.”

Mr Moore challenged more

members of the advisory group

to come forward and make

themselves known to Templeton

and Weedons locals.

The Weedons Residents’ Association

is part of the group. Association

secretary Gary Doyle said

the meetings did not provide

new detail about the quarry.

The Templeton Residents’

Association refused to be part of

the group, saying Fulton Hogan

should speak to all residents, not

a select group.

Repairs for playgrounds

WORK IN PROGRESS: The

Sheffield Domain playground

is in the process of being

upgraded after it was

identified as needing repairs

in a district-wide report.

•From page 1

It said Selwyn’s playgrounds

were in “very good” condition,

with high levels of use and good

maintenance.

At Courtenay Domain, the

playground’s see-saw was closed

and swing was in poor condition.

Mr Crawford said Courtenay

playground is still cordoned off.

At the Sheffield Domain, the

report identified the fibreglass

slide as being cracked and broken

while the swings and timber

edge were in poor condition.

The Sheffield Domain is in

the progress with the Sheffield/

Waddington Reserve Board

Committee of getting fixed.

For the playground at

Waihora Domain, the boat was

in poor condition and the tree

house had many broken parts

that needed to be repaired.

The Rolleston Domain playground

also had a number of

compliance and maintenance issues

while the fitness equipment

at Prebbleton Domain were of a

poor quality.

Mr Crawford said the district

council is very pleased with the

feedback it received.

“The report was very complimentary

describing it as some of

the best quality of stock in New

Zealand,” he said.

District councillor Pat McEvedy

said not a lot of remedial

work was required because such

a high per percentage of playgrounds

that are compliant and

in good order.

“I am really pleased about

that, we have a lot of playgrounds,”

he said.

It is estimated Selwyn has

about eight playgrounds per

1000 children under the age of

15.

Compared to the rest of the

country there is a median of

three playgrounds per 1000

children.

Ratepayers off the hook over stadium

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

Sam Broughton

SELWYN community groups

and ratepayers are pleased they

will not need to fork out for

Christchurch’s planned sports

and events arena.

But while the news has received

a positive response from

the community, many residents

would have been happy to

contribute to

the proposed

Christchurch

Stadium.

It comes after

mayor Sam

Broughton

was reported

last week saying

financial

support from

the district

council was no longer necessary.

It was due to the Christchurch

City Council confirming it

would spend $253 million and

the Government’s Christchurch

Regeneration Acceleration Fund

has promised $220 million

towards the stadium.

In May the district council

suggested a targeted rate, collected

by Environment Canterbury,

for the stadium sparking

mixed reaction.

But Mayor Broughton told

Selwyn Times at no stage was

Selwyn ever asked to fund the

stadium, he wanted to start a

conversation to make the stadium

happen.

“Now that the funding from the

Government and Christchurch

City Council decision has been

made I can’t see why there would

need to be anything else,” he said.

Dunsandel Community Committee

chairman Nigel Barnett

said if it is fully funded from

other sources it is a good outcome

for district ratepayers.

“Personally I would have been

quite comfortable to be called

upon to contribute something

to the stadium. Quite frankly it

is a benefit to the whole region,”

he said.

His views were backed by

Lincoln Club president Lynn

Townsend, who said while it is

good the ratepayers don’t have

to pay, it should be supporting

the Christchurch City Council

to some extent.

“There are a hell of a lot of

people in Selwyn that will benefit

from and have the pleasure

of using the stadium,” he said.

But other residents are still

unsure over whether it is a good

or bad idea for Selwyn ratepayers

to pay.

FORK

OUT: While

Selwyn

residents are

happy they

don’t have to

pay for the

Christchurch

Stadium,

many would

have if the

opportunity

had arisen. ​

Leeston Community Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen

said did not know whether

it was a good outcome and if

Selwyn ratepayers should be

funding the stadium.

“There is too much up in the

air. You almost want to see a

proposal so you can see exactly

what they are doing . . . there are

too many unknowns to make an

opinion.

Weedons Residents

Association Committee

secretary Gary Doyle said he

couldn’t make a comment until

he had all the information on

the proposal.

Lincoln cyclist battles his internal

Two years ago Keagan

Girdlestone was learning

how to cycle again after

a major crash. Now the

21-year-old from Lincoln

is facing a battle with

post-traumatic stress as

he endeavours to keep his

Tour de France dreams

alive. Gordon Findlater

reports on Girdlestone’s

road to recovery

IN JUNE 2016, Keagan

Girdlestone was feared dead after

crashing into the back of a team

vehicle while racing in Italy.

He severed his carotid artery

and jugular vein, suffered

bruising to the brain and several

strokes, and went into cardiac

arrest on the operating table.

He was told by doctors he

would never ride again. But in

July, the Christchurch rider travelled

to France to race in Europe

for the first time since making a

remarkable physical recovery.

However, what was about to

unfold in France has left the

21-year-old with another barrier

to overcome.

While on a training ride, Girdlestone

felt a kink in his neck

– which was badly-damaged in

his big crash. He had no idea he

was experiencing his first posttraumatic

stress event.

“I started suffering a panic attack,

but I didn’t know any of the

symptoms. I just kept thinking

to myself ‘holy cow, I’m having a

stroke’. It was terrifying being in

the middle of nowhere in France

and knowing if I have a stroke

now, I’m dead,” said Girdlestone.

“I thought ‘is this where I die

. . . did I come this far just to die

on a training ride?’”

“I remember afterwards talking

to my dad on the phone and

I just burst into tears because I

was terrified.”

Shaken by the event, Girdlestone

was unsure what he had

just experienced. The same week,

he got back on the bike and

looked to prove to himself there

was nothing wrong with his

neck by doing a 1min effort ride.

This saw him record a personal

best since the accident and his

fourth best time ever. The posttraumatic

stress would return

just days later, though, when he

was on another training ride.

BATTLE: Once highlytouted

junior cyclist Keagan

Girdlestone, 21, is now

battling with his mind after

overcoming the injuries

he sustained from a major

accident in Italy in 2016.

“I looked down and my heart

rate was 130, and then the next

minute it was 160 out of nowhere

. . . I wasn’t peddling but my

heart rate was through the roof.”

Girdlestone stopped cycling

and waved down a local farmer

who assisted him before he went

to hospital.

“I was reassured that there was

nothing wrong. I had an MRI

done and it came up fine.”

The fear of getting back on the

bike led to Girdlestone returning

home from France a month

earlier than expected. A number

Fire rages, homes at risk

demons after major crash in Italy

A number of other panic

attacks led Girdlestone to learn

that what he was experiencing

were post-traumatic stress

events. This was confirmed after

visiting a psychologist.

For two months the panic

attacks left him too scared to

even ride his bike. “At one stage,

I did think to myself I might stop

riding because I thought there

was no way I could get on a bike

and not freak the hell out.”

“I didn’t want to believe it at

first because I’ve never been

the kind of person to have any

mental issues, even throughout

this entire experience of my

accident. It makes sense to me

now that I’ve had the symptoms

explained to me.”

Girdlestone has little memory

of the accident in 2016 and no

memory of any pain. However,

he believes his brain has linked

the sensation he is experiencing

in his neck to pain experienced

during the crash.

“I think sub-consciously my

brain remembers exactly what

that pain felt like.”

His dream of returning to

competitive cycling this time

around is a whole different

experience to what he was going

through two years ago.

“When I’m riding or working

on my rehab, the physical things

I can just attack full gas and just

work hard, but when it comes

to the mental side of things, it’s

about accepting that you actually

have to take a step back and look

at the bigger picture. You’ve got

to know that, where you are

now, it’s not going to be like this

forever.”

Girdlestone went for a twohour

ride this week – his longest

since returning home – and

experienced only minor issues.

“You just get on the bike and

hope for the best.”

“I make sure I’m in a good

head space before I get on

the bike because I don’t want

riding a bike to be associated

with panic, discomfort and

unenjoyment.”

‘I feel like I’m being surrounded

by a fence that’s holding me back

and all I’ve got to do is take the

blindfold off and realise there is

no fence’ – Keagan Girdlestone

CHAMPION: In

2014, Keagan

Girdlestone

put himself

on the scene

by becoming

the youngest

ever winner

of Le Race at

16-years-old.

“The first priority is to get

my love for riding again . . .

for the moment, it’s been quite

terrifying.”

Girdlestone shot to

prominence in 2014 as a 16-yearold

by becoming the youngest

winner of the 100km Le Race

event from Christchurch to

Akaroa.

In 2015, he finished fourth in

the time trial at the junior world

champs representing his home

nation of South Africa.

He believes a big part in

getting his head in the right

space will involve putting his

focus towards a target rather

than where he was before the

accident and what he used to be

able to do.

“It’s just like a blindfold and

I’ve got to take it off. I feel like

I’m being surrounded by a fence

that’s holding me back and all

I’ve got to do is take the blindfold

off and realise there is no fence.”

Girdlestone has also started

wearing a balaclava around his

neck to dampen the sensation he

feels.

“The wind when I’m riding

really triggers that effect.”

“Hopefully, I’ll get over it in

time for summer otherwise I

imagine I’ll get quite hot.”

West Melton community ‘excited’

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

WEST MELTON’S new

community centre is less than a

week away from opening to the

public.

The $8.5 million facility

located on 1163 West Coast Rd,

will open to the public next

week.

The facility will feature a

community meeting space, an

indoor sport and recreation area

with an indoor court, a scout

hall, Plunket room and play

centre.

There will also be a space for

community group activities such

as service, gardening, film clubs

and any other demands that may

arise in the community.

The centre has been in

construction for the past 13

months.

Property and Commercial

manager Douglas Marshall said

the new community centre is

much larger and a more modern

facility designed to better meet

the needs of a population that

has grown so rapidly.

The township’s population is

expected to grow to 2256 by 2025.

The new facility was built due

the current centre located on the

same site being outdated and

sustaining damage following the

September 4, 2010, earthquake.

Mr Marshall said the old hall

is currently being demolished to

be used for landscaping and car

parking.

A pedestrian promenade will

connect to the entrance of the

new centre which will be lined

with trees.

West Melton Residents’ Association

member Bruce Russell

said people are extremely excited

about moving into the new

centre.

The new facility has been

about five years in the making

after Mr Russell called a public

meeting to discuss what residents

wanted.

He said it was decided at that

stage a facility more suitable for

the time should be built and the

district council was approached.

An official opening is planned

for December 7.

Backyard Critters

Colourful earthworm

thrives on rotting vegetation

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects and other

invertebrates). Each

week he introduces

a new species found

in his backyard at

Lincoln. His column

aims to raise public

awareness of

biodiversity, the

variety of living things

around us. Check

out the full list of

invertebrates found at

http://naturewatch.

org.nz/projects/

backyard-biodiversitybugs-in-lincoln

IF YOU own a compost

bin like me, the most

common earthworm

within will likely be a tiger

worm (Eisenia fetida).

This earthworm has as

many as 130 distinctive red

and yellow alternating segments

along its body.

They thrive on rotting

vegetation, compost or

manure and can eat their

body weight in a day.

HUNGRY WORM: The tiger worm thrives on rotting

vegetation, compost or manure and can eat their

body weight in a day. ​

The tiger worm is from

Europe and has been introduced

to all continents

apart from Antarctica.

Like other earthworms,

they are hermaphrodites

and adults are distinguished

by their thickened,

light-coloured saddle or

clitellum which join with

another worm during

reproduction.

Both worms will pass

sperm and then lay lemonshaped

cocoons containing

several eggs.

Cocoons are yellow at

first but turn brown as they

mature.

Worms take 8-10 weeks

to breeding maturity.

Composting with

tiger worms is a very

satisfyingly way of turning

food scraps, tea bags, coffee

grounds, grass clippings

and leaves into beautiful

soil.

How To.

With Canterbury experiencing

a hot summer after the wettest

winter on record, our weather

has certainly been extreme.

However, brave Cantabrians,

with verandas and adjustable

louvres from Stratco on our

side, we can take back control

of our unpredictable elements.

Steve Cain, Outdoor Product

Specialist at Stratco, is passionate

about their verandas and electronic

louvre systems “they add great

value to a home, families get

so much more use from their

outdoors, and the real estate

market recognises that value as

well”.

Steve says adding an adjustable

louvre system allows you to

control exactly how much sunlight

and breeze in, and protect from

rain as well.

Custom made to suit your

requirements and powder coated

to any colour, the louvre comes

standard with an electronic remote

control as well as a rain sensor

which gives you huge flexibility on

how to use the system.

The verandas are Stratco’s own

Under a Stratco Outback you are protected from

kids or simply enjoying your garden.

unique leading edge design and

componentry. Steve is pleased to

be able to offer a bespoke veranda

at the same price as a standard

product, because Stratco has

the design tools that enable the

veranda to be custom-designed to

your size, layout, and attachment

requirements.

The process is simple: Steve

will talk through the possibilities

with you and then measure and

quote, which is free with no

obligation. Stratco then designs,

manufactures, and installs the

verandas and louvres themselves.

It’s a one-stop-shop, with all the

project management and heavy

lifting taken care of, leaving you

hands free to thumb your nose at

our climate chaos.

WHAT A difference six

months makes in the life

of West Melton motorbike

rider, Hamish Macdonald

(right).

in Europe at the start of

the FIM Enduro GP World

Championships season in

after finishing second overall

in the FIM World Youth

Enduro Championship

on his Sherco 125 SE-R in

Germany, last Monday.

A leading competitor

at the top of the national

enduro scene at home,

Macdonald had already

proven himself an

accomplished rider in New

Zealand.

He was the first Kiwi to

win an event when he took

out the Youth Cup 125

class at the Enduro GP of

Italy, in September.

“Second in the world

feels pretty good,” he said. ​

but I have not won it yet so

hopefully one day I will get

the opportunity to come

back and stand on the top

step of the podium.”

After only planning to

race one round in Spain,

Macdonald said he simply

made the most of each opportunity.

“Doors were opening

and I had some good opportunities

that would’ve

been stupid to turn down.

“One of those opportunities

arose when my

teammate asked me to

come and live with him in

England,” he said.

I had a fractured leg after

a race that didn’t end so

well.

“Mum and dad, being

back in New Zealand, told

me it was best for me to fly

home and repair my leg,

but I said this opportunity

down.”

He said the whole experience

provided plenty of

learning opportunities.

“I hadn’t seen these

factory teams before and I

didn’t know anybody,” he

said.

“I was testing the waters

to start.

“I think the biggest

learning curve for me

has been discovering the

level that I can ride at

during these events and of

course living with a teammate

has been really good.

“To train, ride and race

together, constantly pushing

each other to get better

during this time away from

the “world scene” has been

great.”

Macdonald returns

home this week not

knowing what his future

holds.

“There has been some

talk with the teams

regarding a ride for next

year but I will not know

what the outcome is for a

couple of weeks,” he said.

Take another look at

at rubbish

Where does our rubbish go, what is recyclable and what can you do to ease the pressure on

those who look after our solid waste?

Probably not questions you think about on a day to day basis.

But apart from pulling your wheelie bin out and lamenting the lack of supermarket bags for bin

liners, how much does the average New Zealander ponder their rubbish and recycling? Possibly not

enough according to those who roll up their sleeves and separate the trash from the recyclables.

That’s why the Selwyn District Council alongside 12 other councils across the country have

teamed up to fund a web series of videos called Wasted New Zealand. It highlights our troubles

with trash and where our waste goes.

Selwyn District Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says often there’s a “feel good”

sentiment about recycling, but sometimes our separating needs a little more thought.

“It was great to see this series highlighting some major frustration of ours, such as bagged

recyclables – these are unable to be sorted and are sent to landfill,” he says.

Mr Boyd says there tends to be confusion around takeaway food and drink containers.

“While most containers are made out of plastic or cardboard, they aren’t necessarily recyclable in

the kerbside service.

“Takeaway coffee cups for example should go into the rubbish, and this also applies to compostable

or biodegradable coffee cups – these are not currently acceptable in the organics bin either.”

Mr Boyd says tin, plastic and glass containers need to be empty and clean, with the lids off, if the

container is to be recycled.

Time running out for community grant

funding applications

Applications for the first round of funding from the new Selwyn Community Fund will be closing shortly.

The Selwyn Community Fund was established earlier this year to support events and other activities

that help make Selwyn a great place, and contribute to community wellbeing, bringing communities

together and attracting visitors to the district.

The fund brings together the former Community Events Fund along with new funds, under a new

contestable funding application process.

Community Relations Manager Denise Kidd says they have been happy with the level of applications so

far, but are expecting a late flurry of candidates.

“We have heard from a broad range of community groups about the need for this sort of fund; from

art groups, community groups running events through to parenting support groups and to activity and

social groups for older people,” she says.

“We have received applications from groups located in different parts of the district, as well as at least

one district-wide organisation.”

The Selwyn Community Fund is a valuable way for the Council to support community groups and the

volunteer efforts that do exciting, positive things in our district.

The fund is open to any recognised organisations whose principle functions or activities are of a

charitable (not-for-profit) nature.

Denise Kidd says from the initial response Council received they have been expecting more

applications at this point, but says there is still time to apply and she is sure there are other groups who

could benefit by applying.

“This is a great opportunity to ensure your community group is given the opportunity to seek the

financial backing it needs to continue its growth and development,” Denise Kidd says.

Applications for the Selwyn Community Fund are open year round, with funding allocated in two rounds

each year. Round one closes on Wednesday 31 October.

Full details on eligibility and criteria, along with an online application form, are at www.selwyn.govt.nz/

Cricket set to be a smash

hit in Lincoln

Top class cricket is coming to the heart of Selwyn this week.

A four-day women’s domestic T20 competition will be held at New

Zealand Cricket’s High Performance Centre at Lincoln between 25

and 28 October.

The Burger King Super Smash will feature all six of the women’s

domestic sides, and will be a great opportunity for the Canterbury

Magicians to start the season in a positive fashion.

Senior Events and Recreation Advisor Dave Tippett, says this is a

fantastic opportunity for sports fans living in Selwyn to see some

top quality cricket in the district.

“We are working towards developing a stronger relationship with

New Zealand Cricket, initially with our Summer in Selwyn brand, to

enable both parties to leverage on the huge benefits of having the

High Performance Centre and exceptional facilities in the heart of

our district.

“Bert Sutcliffe Oval is one of the premier sporting venues in our

district and partnering with New Zealand Cricket who own it is

logical from a Council perspective,” Mr Tippett says.

While Hagley Park in Christchurch is Canterbury’s foremost cricket

venue, a number of games are still scheduled for Bert Sutcliffe Oval,

including age-grade competitions, pre-seasons matches and the

likes of the upcoming Burger King Super Smash.

Mr Tippett hopes more Selwyn locals will be getting out and

supporting the range of cricket being played at the Oval during

the summer.

Entry will be free to the four days of Burger King Super Smash

women’s T20. For more information head to www.supersmash.co.nz.

Flush your taps

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces

of metals to accumulate in water standings in the fittings for

several hours.

Although the health risk is small, the Ministry of Health recommends

that you flush a mugful of water from your drinking-water each

morning before use to remove any metals that may have dissolved

from the plumbing fittings.

Assets Manager, Murray Washington says this is a simple measure

to help safe-guard the health of yourself and your family.

“It should only take water users a couple seconds to wash out their

pipes, and while it is only a precaution, it is a quick way to protect

your household, no matter how small the risk is.

We are recommending this simple precaution for all households,

including those on private and public water supplies.

Meet your street coming soon

This summer we’ll be hosting street barbeques to help locals meet

their street. These are fun informal events to help you meet your

neighbourhood, while enjoying some food, music and games for

the kids.

Residents also have the opportunity to apply for a Meet Your

Street event in their street! Four locations are up for grabs – this

year we want you to tell us where you think the final four Meet your

Street locations should be in March 2019. Applications are open

now until 30 November with the lucky winning street announced

early December.

Here in Selwyn we also encourage neighbourhoods to organise

their own local street gathering. If you are interested in hosting

your own, we offer a subsidy of up to $75 per street gathering

(conditions apply).

To find out more and to nominate your street visit selwyn.govt.nz/

Fire rages, homes at risk

Ease the fuel bill with cheeky Kia Picanto

• By Ross Kiddie

WHERE IS it all going to end?

The price of fuel is heading

towards $3 a litre, and there’s no

sign of the cost dropping at any

point.

However, the manufacturers of

small, economical cars must be

happy, when fuel prices surge new

car buyers see efficiency as a key

buying ingredient.

The latest fuel miser to come

my way is Kia’s cheeky Picanto,

a small hatchback with a 1248cc

four-cylinder engine that has

been developed so that filling up

doesn’t need to take place often

and when there is a need to topup

there are no nasty surprises

when it is translated into dollar

amounts.

Everything about the Picanto is

designed for efficiency. Sure, there

was some indication that the newgeneration

model would land with

a tiny turbocharged 1-litre engine,

but the reality is that the 1.2-litre

unit is far from greedy.

If you take note of the fuel

claim figures, the Picanto stacks

up well.

Kia claims a .8l/100km(49mpg)

combined cycle average. My time

with the test car was constantly

listing around a 7.2l/100km

(39mpg) figure, which was a

little distant, but the point is that

KIA PICANTO X-LINE: Quasi sport utility vehicle.

under evaluation conditions I’m

never going to match the manufacturer’s

claims, in ideal conditions

I’m sure that Kia’s claim is

achievable. At 100km/h on the

highway an instantaneous figure

of 4l/100km (70mpg) is on offer,

the engine turning over quite

busy at 2900pm at that speed.

As mentioned, under the bonnet

sits a small capacity engine of

just 1.2-litre. It is a twin-camshaft

type with power outputs of 62kW

and 122Nm. It’s no powerhouse,

but then it doesn’t need to be, the

baby Picanto has a role to serve,

and it does that well given its

design parameters; all that aside,

a standstill to 100km/h time of

around 12sec is possible.

Drive is channelled through a

four-speed automatic transmission,

although if you really want

to go there, a five-speed manual

is available on special order.

However, automatics are what

Kiwi buyers are interested in, and

the driveline in the Picanto is

engineered for smoothness and

ease of operation.

It is also a relaxing car to drive,

and one which appeals with its

simplicity. In terms of engineering,

the Picanto has all the ingredients

to serve its purpose.

The Picanto comes in several

specifications, the entry-level

LX manual gearbox model lists

• Price – Kia Picanto,

$21,490

• Dimensions – Length,

3670mm; width, 1625mm;

height, 1500mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

front-wheeldrive,

1248cc, 62kW,

122Nm, four-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 12sec

• Fuel usage – 5.8l/100km

at $18,490 (LX auto $18,990).

Other specifications include a GT

($21,490) and, in the test car’s case,

X-Line which is the same price as

the GT. The X-Line version is has

quasi-sport utility vehicle styling.

It has a bold body kit which

really looks the part, but with front

wheel-drive only, it certainly can’t

be considered an off-roader.

However, Kia have raised the

X-Line slightly, it has 15mm more

ground clearance than its stablemates.

That’s handy for when

tackling the odd urban jungle

hurdle, and it certainly makes

entry and egress that much easier,

especially for those who aren’t as

agile as they once were.

For its price, the X-Line has

a high level of fitment for both

convenience and safety, the latter

earning it a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment Program

rating. Interior specification

includes most of the essentials

we have come to expect from

the modern car, and many of the

functions are available through a

large central touch screen.

Sitting on a simplistic front

strut/rear torsion beam suspension,

the spring and damper rates

have been selected for the twisty

nature of New Zealand roads,

and they also work well on the

earthquake-damaged surfaces

around the city.

The Picanto X-Line is also a

head-turner, the body kit adds an

aggressive edge, it also has a smart,

fashionable, yet functional interior

that takes in the effort Kia is going

to with its designs these days.

At under $20k, there are many

good reasons why the Picanto

should be considered as a small

car purchase. Kia is making moves

at a critical time, it and its partner

Hyundai are full steam ahead on

electric and hybrid production.

However, the Picanto is there for

those who want traditional petrol

power, and the timing is perfect

for the new model; the only way to

beat rising fuel prices is to use less,

and that’s where trendy cars like

the Picanto come in.

Professional designer can

offer innovative options

Sharon CroftS

LandSCape d e S ign

• Consultations • Design Concepts • Planting Plans

Longer days and warmer temperatures signal that now is a good

time to start planning your new garden, or revamping your existing

one, suggests landscape designer Sharon Crofts.

A good way to start, she says, is with a consultation to discuss your

ideas. From there, Sharon will produce a design concept and a planting

schedule to create a garden that’s unique to you and your lifestyle.

While many homeowners like to plan their own gardens, calling on

a professional designer can be very helpful, as they often have design

and planting ideas or innovative landscape options the home gardener

hadn’t thought of, Sharon says.

At this time of year, too, the plant nurseries are well stocked with

new plants and shrubs ready for planting in all areas of the garden.

Having a landscape plan takes away the confusion over which plants

go where.

Homeowners have the option of implementing the plan themselves,

or alternatively, Sharon can recommend contractors, who will visit

the property and give quotes for the work. The homeowner can then

choose the one they feel most comfortable with.

Having your paving or decking areas professionally designed and

executed will give the landscaping that professional edge, which in

turn will add value to the property.

As the end of year gets closer, contractors are getting booked up

with projects clients require to have completed before Christmas,

Sharon says, so anyone wanting work done before the festive season

will need to act quickly. However, there will be more availability in

January and February, when contractors are not so busy and there are

still several weeks of summer left for homeowners to enjoy their newly

designed outdoor area.

So, to arrange for a consultation on your new garden design,

contact Sharon Crofts Landscape Design, phone (03) 329 6229,

mobile 0274 311558, and she will provide a prompt service and a

garden design to suit your individual tastes and requirements. Or

send an email to s-crofts@xtra.co.nz.

Enjoy the outdoors all year

round with the Bowranda

Patio Roof

With spring in full swing and summer just

around the corner, it is the perfect time to step

back and look at how you can get the most out of

your outdoor living environment.

Whether you are hosting family and friends or

just enjoying some “you time”, being able to utilise

your outdoor space with shade from the harsh sun

or shelter from inclement weather is the dream

lifestyle.

The Bowranda Patio Roof is the ultimate solution

to your needs, providing comfort and protection

through all four seasons. As a permanent outdoor

space that provides shelter from the elements, it

offers a desirable area for anyone who wants to

be outside while avoiding exposure to spoiling

weather extremes.

Tailored to the needs of New Zealanders,

Bowranda’s ingeniously designed roof incorporates

a specialised membrane that eliminates 99 per cent

of UV rays while still preserving ambient light.

This provides reliable protection from harmful

rays without compromising the feel of a natural

sunlit area, and unlike other shade composites, it

will not unduly darken the adjacent interior.

The Bowranda is not just a sunshade; it protects

from all elements, making it a standout among

other forms of outdoor shading. With the ability

to add roller blinds in sunscreen mesh or clear

PVC, homeowners are protected from sun, wind

and rain from any direction.

Made from powder-coated aluminium and

marine-grade stainless steel fixings, Bowranda has

a structural design that was carefully developed

over a five-year period, and comes with a 10-year

guarantee.

The intentional square profile of the roof line

and vertical posts ensures aesthetic conformity

with New Zealand’s residential architecture.

The Bowranda Patio Roof is centrally

manufactured by Unique Outdoors to the exact

specifications and dimensions required by

customers to meet their outdoor aspirations.

Unique Outdoors are a division of MCP New

Zealand Limited, who have been a leader in the

manufacturing industry based from their head

office in Christchurch since 1960.

Pinterest’s top trends for

backyard living this

Do you think about long, hot summer nights and barbeques on the back

lawn? As spring morphs into summer, getting your outdoor living area

ready for the season should be high on your list of things to do.

Here is some of Pinterest’s most significant outdoors living trends for

the upcoming summer season based on Pinning activity. You can find

hundreds of ideas and DIY projects at www.pinterest.com.

Whimsical lights of fancy

Turn your evenings outdoors into nights

of romance or festivity with strings of global

solar lights. For a festive look, string a set of

global lights across your balcony, hanging

from your pergola, or over the dining area.

To create a romantic look, drape a string of

lights over bushes and trees in your garden.

Choose energy-saving solar lights for a

long-lasting glow and watch them twinkle

in the breeze. Solar lights are easy to install

and don’t require any special wiring. Use

them to highlight paths, steps and garden

features.

Take them outdoors

Give your outdoor dining and living

areas a modern, trendy look with European

inspired seating that looks like it should be

indoors. Versatile and sleek, these funky

powder-coated metal chairs are hot for

summer and will add a pop of colour to

your outdoor setting or blend in seamlessly.

Team them up with natural timber, glass

or metal. Choose a design to suit your

style from replica bent wire, old metal,

contemporary wire mesh, or hairpin legs.

To finish the ensemble, add black and white

cushions in geometric and striped patterns.

Go all out for pizza

Buy or build your own pizza oven

and invite guests over for pizza

parties. Tuck it into the corner of

your outdoor living area or include

it in your patio kitchen plan. It will

not only be a focal point for your

guests but will also provide a unique

and fun dining option. You supply

the pizza dough, ask your guests to

bring various toppings – they help

put the pizzas together and even cook

them. Voila! The perfect evening’s

entertainment!

summer

Create your own patio bar

If outdoor parties are high on your list

this summer, then consider incorporating

a beer or wine bar into your outdoor

entertainment area. It could be as simple

as setting up a plank over two wine barrels,

a portable trolley or a full wrap around

counter. To inject a bit of fun into your

social get-togethers, try a themed tiki bar

complete with thatched roof. If that idea is

going too far, build or buy a bar leaner table

with or without bar stools. If space is tight,

choose one with a round table top. And if

the budget allows, incorporate an outdoor

glass door bar fridge or an ice chest into

your plans.

Make your splash dashing

Darker pool surface colours are slick and

fashionable. Black and navy are popular

choices for reflection and heat retention.

Incorporate mosaics in dark blue and

purple hues for extra sparkle. To create

a look of luxury, turn your pool into a

luxurious oasis with natural landscaping

elements - try lush plantings of tropical or

native plants depending on your climate.

You can also make your pool smart

by incorporating

automation into your

pool care system to

control lighting, open

and close valves, turn

on pumps and check

temperatures and

chlorine levels.

And if you are putting in a new pool with

a view, consider a pool with an infinity

edge to create an illusion of a seamless

panorama.

Give your patio floor a lift

Choosing your outdoor living area

flooring is just as important as selecting the

flooring for indoors. Your patio flooring

can blend into the background seamlessly

or make a bold statement. Traditional

outdoor flooring includes slip-resistant

tiles, timber decking, brick and concrete

pavers.

For something a little different try: a mix

of gravel and stepping stones or pavers;

stencil painted patterns onto concrete;

turn recycled concrete pieces into crazy

paving; give your concrete a timber-look

texture; or use colourful, geometrically

patterned tiles. Try your artist’s hand and

incorporate mosaics as a feature in your

design – use pebbles, bricks, or irregular

shaped stepping stones or broken china to

create your masterpiece. And for a quick

and easy option, recycle timber pallets into

a decking – place them at right angles to

each other for an interesting pattern.

Timely suggestions for

spring gardening projects

The arrival of spring and Daylight Saving

brings longer, warmer days, plus the

opportunity to get started on those spring

gardening jobs.

The experts at Intelligro have some timely

suggestions, starting with sowing seeds and

seedlings. For the veggie garden, they say,

now is the right time to sow carrots, lettuce,

peas, courgettes, spinach, spring onions

beans and tomatoes, so you can enjoy

fresh, home-grown produce right through

summer.

Whether you are growing seeds or

seedlings, their Saxon Seed Trays and Seed

Raising Mix will get them off to a good

start, and help to nourish them as they

grow and flourish.

For the keen gardener, there’s nothing

more satisfying than seeing their shrubs

and flowers bursting with life and colour.

Intelligro suggest giving your roses a boost

ahead of the flowering season with a feed

of fertiliser, and you will enjoy a beautiful

display throughout summer and into

autumn. New roses can also be planted

now, with some slow-release fertiliser or

compost added to give them a good start.

Now is also the time to plan your summer

display for pots, baskets and garden beds,

and get planting. For pots and baskets, they

suggest using their All-Purpose Potting

Mix or Patio Plus to achieve top-notch

results. These products are also suitable for

indoor plants.

A bright-green healthy-looking lawn is

the perfect complement to summer colour,

and now is the time to fertilise lawns, or

sow new ones. The experts at Intelligro

can also advise on dealing with pests and

diseases, and have a range of products for

pest control and lawn care and repair.

As a bulk landscaping supplier, Intelligro

stock bark mulch, bark nuggets, wood

chips, garden mulch, screened garden soil,

lawn mixes, veggie garden mix and more,

and there is a delivery service available for

bulk and bagged products, as well as trailer

hire.

For the team at Intelligro, the aim is

to take the guesswork out of gardening

for their customers, and they are always

happy to discuss your ideas and offer

advice. Intelligro is located at 261 Manion

Road Weedons. Phone 347 9415.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday

Make your home

allergy free

Itchy and watery eyes, runny nose,

sneezing, tickly throat…

These are just some of the symptoms

you may get if you suffer from hay fever.

New Zealand is known to be one of the worst countries for

hay fever and with climatic changes in our seasons on the rise, it

could become all year round for some sufferers.

Research suggests pollen is on the increase. This year

pharmacies and optometrists have noticed a rise in hay fever

complaints, even from those who have never experienced it

before.

Warmer winters with fewer frosts may be to blame, as extreme

cold is needed to dampen or kill off some pollen-producing

plants.

Aside from using over-the-counter medications to treat hay

fever and allergies, what else can you do to help reduce further

reactions?

Visit www.allergy.org.nz

to download your free annual

pollen calendar.

10 Tips to a dust and pollen-free home

• Vacuum regularly: Vacuum 1-2 times a

week to keep your house dust mite, pet hair

and dander free.

• Brush your pets outside: If you regularly

brush your pets, do it outdoors away from

open windows and doors.

• Wash your bedding: Wash your sheets

weekly and dry them in the dryer when

pollen is at its worst.

• Regularly clean furnishings: Choose easy to

wash fabrics for drapes, curtains, cushion

and sofa covers to help keep allergens at

bay.

• Hard flooring vs carpet: Choose flooring

such as vinyl or timber, which are easier to

wash and keep clean.

• Keep pollen and dust outside: Shut

windows and doors on windy days.

• Remove your outdoor clothing: Change

your gardening or walking clothes when

you come inside to avoid bringing pollen

into your home and onto your furnishings.

• Stay indoors: Choose your time to spend

outdoors. Most pollen is emitted between

5am and 10am; however, pollen counts do

vary throughout the day.

• In the garden: Regularly remove dead

plants and leaves; stay away from, or wear a

mask, when lawn mowing.

• In the car: Keep windows closed and set

the air conditioning on recirculate to keep

pollen-laden air out.

Tips to smarten your outdoors before Xmas

WITH THE warmer weather

comes the ever knowing

awareness and understanding

that Christmas is really not that

far away. Turn the corner and we

are almost there.

Wise are those who plan and

work in advance.

Unfortunately, most of us wait

until the last minute to work on

our gardens, just before the big

day arrives.

Often we find the task either

too big or too difficult, hence

a lot of us leave it incomplete

or even worse, don’t start at all.

Well, here are some simple tips

to improve your outdoor living

areas.

You can always let the cobwebs

inside take care of themselves, at

least they catch flies.

1: If your garden is too much

to handle then simplify it. Look

at what plants you have. Your

likes and dislikes. Too big or

too small? Leaf droppers or

sun blockers? The list goes on.

Ascertain what has to go and

get rid of them. You may be

surprised at how simple things

make a big difference.

2: Remember, often less is best.

At this stage you may need to

seek some professional advice

to help keep in mind the picture

you want to create.

COLOUR: Paint timber fences and gates, this will give a fresh look. Consider building raised gardens, they will add a point of

interest as well as being practical for growing greens.

3: If your garden and plant

maintenance is high and you’re

finding it hard to cope, then

weed out the problem. For

example, it just maybe time

to realise that the roses are no

longer suitable. Remember you

can always substitute them with

an alternative plant.

4: Consider building raised

gardens with timber or garden

sleepers. Besides adding a point

of interest, you have the added

benefits of a well drained garden

that is easier to maintain. You

may even consider split level

gardens which will add an

aesthetic value to your piece of

paradise.

5: Consider plants that either

give off scent or produce food.

This is an increasingly popular

trend, with the benefits of

producing organic fruit and

vegetables being both healthy for

the body, good for the soul and

satisfying for the pocket.

6: Make your garden is

as maintenance-free as possible.

Consider alternatives to bark

and mulch using non-organic

product such as decorative

stone and using a quality nonwoven

weed matt for weed

control.

7: Consider painting or

staining timber fences,

retaining walls and other

wooden structures. This

Grow your own food

FOR MANY years, Labour

Weekend has been the traditional

time for planting out a full range

of summer vegetables and flowers.

Hopefully, you have planned

ahead and prepared your soil

ready for planting. If not, then

add in plenty of compost or

garden mix and combine well

with your existing soil before you

plant out.

There is something special

about growing your own vegetables

– watching them grow from

seed/seedling to a scrumptious

crop through your own tender

loving care might be why they

taste better.

No matter how big or small the

space available; you can successfully

grow veges in regular garden

beds, raised beds or in pots

and containers.

Tasty vegetables to plant now

include beans, beetroot, carrots,

celery, corn, cucumber, onions,

peas, pumpkin, radish, potatoes,

spinach, tomatoes and zucchini,

not to mention the great range of

lettuces available.

If space really is an issue, there

are plenty of dwarf varieties you

can grow. For plants that need

support like tomatoes or beans,

put your support stakes/structures

in place before you plant

TASTY: Vegetables to plant now include corn. It is easy to

grow and tastes great when barbecued.

your young plant – so you don’t

disturb the roots later on. Use old

pantyhose to tie plants to support

structures – they are soft, so

won’t damage the stem.

Summer flowering annuals

can also be planted now in

either beds or large containers.

Flower varieties to grow are

alyssum, aster, cornflower,

cosmos, livingstone daisy, lobelia,

marigold, nemesia, portulaca,

petunia, statice, salvia, stock,

sunflowers and zinnia – to name

just a few.

Also, think about planting

some varieties in your vegetable

garden to help attract bees and

other beneficial insects to aid

pollination.

Fresh herbs can also now be

safely planted, such as basil,

chives, dill, marjoram, mint,

oregano, parsley, sage, tarragon,

thyme and rosemary. They can

be grown successfully in containers

or in the garden, preferring a

hot, free-draining site.

As trees and shrubs come into

spring growth, fertilise.

Citrus trees should be fed with

a specific citrus fertiliser. Do not

apply fertiliser in very dry hot

conditions such as the peak of

summer when plants can suffer

from heat or moisture stress.

WITH THE mowing season

upon us, it’s time to make sure

your lawn mower is as ready as

you are to tackle those lawn care

chores.

A regular, simple maintenance

programme to keep your mower

performing at its best and to extend

its useful life. Just follow this

easy checklist:

■•Change the oil

Oil is the engine’s lifeblood that

removes contaminants, lubricates

parts and dissipates heat.

That’s why it’s important to make

sure the crankcase contains an

adequate supply of fresh oil.

Before changing the oil, run the

engine for several minutes until it

warms up. Then, stop the engine,

disconnect the spark plug and

drain the oil into a pan or similar

container. Refill the crankcase

with high quality detergent oil

that has a SG/CD classification

on the label. Take the used oil to a

local recycling center. It’s environmentally

unfriendly-and illegalto

dump used motor oil on the

ground or into a storm drain.

•Check the air filter

Your air-cooled engine needs

a constant supply of clean air.

If your mower engine takes a

disposable paper filter, simply

replace it with a new filter. If the

engine requires a foam-type filter,

remove the sponge from the filter

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

Look after your mower

assembly, soak it in kerosene and

squeeze it dry. Then apply a few

drops of clean oil into the sponge

and place it back in the filter assembly.

•Use fresh fuel

Petrol turns stale after about 60

days and can form gum in your

engine’s carburettor, resulting in

expensive repairs. Eliminate the

problem by routinely filling your

engine’s tank with fresh fuel. If

petrol must remain in the tank for

a prolonged period of time, add a

fuel stabiliser to keep it fresh and

to ensure a clean fuel system that

leads to easier starting.

•Sharpen the blade

Think about what a dull razor

does to your face or legs when

shaving. Similarly, a dull mower

blade can bruise, bend and damage

your lawn, making it susceptible

to disease. After disconnecting

the spark plug, examine the

blade for wear or damage. Have it

professionally sharpened at least

once annually.

•Keep things clean

While you’re checking the

blade, remove any dirt and cakedon

grass under the mower. Squirt

vegetable oil cooking spray

underneath to reduce clipping

build-up and to prevent rust. This

will also save you a lot of work

when cleaning the mower after

each use.

‘Imprint’ exhibition pulls together four diverse artists expressing their

personal cultural and environmental impressions.

These artworks are mostly in the form of high quality prints from original paintings.

Sofia Minson paints

portraits and landscapes

infused with ancient

myth, magic and

symbolism. There is

both defiance and

incorporation of Western

and Maori cultural

influences.

Melissa Sharplin

lives in majestic

Southern Otago. These

landscapes mark the

first in a new direction

for Sharplin, exploring

the epic Southern Otago

landscapes and their

untamed inhabitants.

Kate Beatty’s Black

Series - sacred

geometric patterns

integrate the banal

object of a doily with a

spiritual pattern relating

to creation. Native bird

value is suggested by the

central focal point.

Hamish Southcott has a

passion for environmental

issues and a preference

for using reclaimed

materials. Discs of native

timber are engraved with

impressions of evocative

scenes.

MORE THAN JUST A LIFESTYLE

Complete with a modern home featuring all the extras, a large

shed that will appeal to the engineer and an abundance of other

sheds, this 9.6 hectare property in a renowned grass growing

area is no ordinary lifestyle block. Extensively developed by the

current owners into what can only be described as the model

small holding, there has been no stone left unturned in getting

the property to where it is today.

The naturally warm 253m 2 three bedroom plus study home is

surrounded by sweeping lawns, gardens and established trees

giving a setting which is hard to replicate. The home is heated by

a free standing logburner (wetback) and is set for the sun with

its dual decks plus features a large country style kitchen, open

plan living/dining, separate formal living area, two bathrooms

including the ensuite, loads of storage, a separate laundry/

mudroom and large attached double garage.

The property is subdivided into multiple paddocks with a central

lane, troughs and hot wires and has a good fertiliser history and

re-grassing history. There are also cattle and sheep yards, a

chook area and vege garden area with glass house.

Properties of this size and so well improved are rare and we can

guarantee inspection will impress.

[Edition datE]

How property buyers can spot

a healthy home

Purchasing a house that’s warm and dry is a priority for many

property hunters, but how can buyers identify a ‘healthy’ home?

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith says

there are a handful of key traits to watch

out for.

“A house that’s hard to heat can make

you sick and miserable. In many cases,

the key is good insulation,” Lampen-

Smith says.

The World Health Organisation

recommends a minimum of 18 degrees in

our homes. Insulation is often the most

practical and cost-effective way to make a

house more energy efficient. An insulated

home is warmer in winter and cooler

in summer, which can provide health

benefits like reducing mould and damp.

“Ask the agent or seller if the property

is insulated, the type of insulation used

and when it was installed. Ask your

building inspector to check the state of

the insulation,” Lampen-Smith suggests.

Lampen-Smith explains insulation

should be replaced or topped up if it’s less

than 12cm thick, doesn’t cover the whole

ceiling, has become wet or damp, or been

damaged by rodents or birds.

“If a property you’re looking at isn’t

insulated, it’s a good idea to budget for

the cost of doing the work, as your health

(and your wallet) will thank you in the

long term.”

There’s support available for some

buyers, such as a Warmer Kiwi Homes

insulation grant. Some local councils

also allow property owner to add the cost

of insulation to their rates and pay this

back over time.

When working to identify a healthy

home, Lampen-Smith says it’s important

to watch out for dampness. Signs of

dampness include musty smells, damp

or mouldy wardrobe contents, mould

forming behind paintings or furniture,

or mould or watermarks on ceilings or

walls.

“Condensation on windows, especially

in bedrooms, isn’t necessarily a sign of

excessive dampness if it only happens

occasionally during winter,” Lampen-

Smith explains.

Ideally, the house will have extractor

fans in the bathroom, kitchen and

laundry that are vented outside. Fans

should not be vented into the roof space.

Good curtains can also help a house

retain warmth.

“It’s important to note that curtains

aren’t necessarily included in the sale of

the house, so ask about this and if the

answer is yes, ensure they’re included in

the list of chattels in the sale and purchase

agreement,” Lampen-Smith says.

According to EECA, good curtains

should be floor-length and fit tightly

against the wall or window frame. Silllength

curtains are ineffective. Curtains

should be wider than the window

frame and preferably be double layered

with a thick lining. If the property has

ineffective curtains, or does not come

with curtains, buyers should factor this

cost into their budget.

For more information and helpful

resources about purchasing a home,

visit settled.govt.nz, the independent

government website for buyers and

sellers.

BUILDING

a new home

So you’ve decided to build a new home. Before you dive in

boots and all, there are a number of steps that need to be

followed. Cover all the bases when building a home…

STEP 1: FINANCE

Firstly it is important to organise your

finances in advance in order to work out

what you can realistically afford. There

is little point getting excited about an

impending building project if you have

no idea how far your finances will stretch.

Draw up a realistic budget of your present

household expenses to see whether

building a new home is in fact feasible.

Once you have an idea of how much money

you are able to outlay, without causing

yourself excessive hardship, it is time to

start investigating the costs involved when

constructing your new home.

STEP 2: PURCHASING A SECTION

Buying the right section is an essential

part of the building process and as such

there are a number of important things

that need to be considered.

Is the section close to all necessary

amenities, such as schools, shops, hospitals

and public transport? Does it have a view,

plenty of sun, privacy and good drainage

or is it prone to flooding, windy and miles

away from civilisation? Visit at different

times of the day, in different weather

conditions and if time is on your side,

different times of the year to see how much

sun it gets in the winter when the sun is at

its lowest.

Also take into consideration its potential

as a building site – is access difficult? This

could have an impact on building costs.

Find out from your local council what

services, such as water, sewage, power,

phone and gas, are connected to the site.

Check whether there is good television

and mobile phone reception, or whether

your new address means you have to

scale the clothesline and hold your phone

in an obscure position just to send a text

message.

The neighbourhood can also be a

contentious issue when purchasing a

section. What are the neighbours like

and are their properties well kept? Are

there overhanging trees that could cause a

nuisance? Could there be a noise problem

from them or their pets? Get a feel for the

area, listening for traffic, animals or noisy

machinery that is in use around the clock.

If there is vacant land adjacent to your

proposed site find out whether the council

has any plans for it and what can and can’t

be built there.

Before buying the section, you also need

to find out what is in your council’s district

plan, and what resource consents you

might need. You also need to request a LIM

report, which is held by your local council

and outlines all information pertaining to

your section regarding rates, land features,

environmental issues, restrictions on land

or building use, resource consents issued,

potential contaminations, details about

septic tanks, hazardous substances and

storm water or sewerage drains.

The report may also contain information

about sacred areas and may provide aerial

photographs. This information may help

you make the all important decision to

either buy the section or leave it alone.

It will also give you an indication as to

whether the purchase price is fair.

STEP 3: CHOOSE AND BRIEF THE

DESIGNER

Before deciding on a designer for your

building project, it is necessary to conduct

some research in order to find out which

type will suit you best.

Speak to a few before making your

choice and liaise with them periodically

once work on the design of your home has

commenced. Get involved by gathering

ideas for materials, fixtures and fittings

and discuss them with your designer.

STEP 4: FINDING A BUILDER

Once the plans are drawn, the materials

have been chosen, and your finance is

arranged, the next step in the building

process is likely to be finding a builder.

Hiring the right builder is crucial to the

whole building experience. People who

have been involved in building a house

typically report that the key factor in

making it a happy experience is finding

a good builder and subcontractors.

The most common things that soured

their building experience were poor

workmanship, contractors not turning

up, no communication, complaints

overlooked, problems left unresolved,

messages ignored and delays. However,

in contrast, people who had positive

experiences reported that the builders

they had hired were highly skilled, honest,

knowledgeable, patient and sympathetic to

their goals and budget.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Building a warm, energy

efficient healthy home

Six essentials to think

about when you are

building a new home

1. Site position A home built with a

northerly aspect to make use of the sun

and protected from prevailing winds will

be warmer and more efficient. If possible

check your building site at different times

of the day to see where and how the sun

hits the property as well as looking out for

any low lying areas.

2. Sun According to energywise.

govt.nz, the sun sends 500 Watts of heat

through each square metre of unshaded

window on sunny winter days. That’s a

tremendous opportunity to harness the

sun’s energy for your home. Adding solar

panels to your roof is another form of

utilising the sun to convert into power

for your home. Choosing a house plan

that is designed to make use of the sun’s

energy will help reduce your power bills

and create a warmer, healthier home

throughout the year.

3. Size & Shape Size, they say, is

everything. However, you can have a

bigger home that is both warm and

healthy. The shape of your home will also

help determine its ability to retain heat and

its energy efficiency. Complex designs will

require more planning and creativity when

it comes to heating. Things to consider

are the internal wall and ceiling height;

number, size and placement of windows;

as well as the shape and flow of rooms.

Also, think about the areas you plan to

use. Generally, the smaller and simpler

the shape of the house, the easier it will

be to heat and therefore be more energy

efficient.

4. Heat Retention This requires

not only good design but also making

good use of the available energy efficient

building products available on the market.

Ways to improve heat retention include a

high level of insulation in walls, ceilings

and flooring – above the required building

code, double glazing with insulated

framing, minimalising plumbing and

electrical services in external wall cavities

and creating airtightness for external

doors.

5. Thermal mass This is a form of

passive heating. Thermal mass is a solid

material such as concrete, which absorbs

the sun’s energy during the day and then

releases that energy in the form of heat

when temperatures drop. Use tiles in front

of doors and floor-to-ceiling windows to

help harness additional heat.

6. Heating Along with an excellent

northerly aspect and appropriate

insulation, the planning and installation

of an energy efficient heating system is

essential – this could be a combination

of heat pump and log/pellet/gas fire or a

central heating system. Consider the size

of your home and the day-to-day use of

the rooms. Look for products that have an

energy star ratings.

a healthier, more energy efficient home,

[Edition datE]

A happy healthy home

More than ever, we now require our

homes to be a sanctuary - a primate haven

where the cares and pressures of the world

do not intrude. The home should be an

enveloping, warm and creative environment

where family members of all ages feel

relaxed and safe.

The longer you live in your home, the

more likely you are to feel in sync with it.

As the seasons come and go you’ll have

got to know which rooms are sunny and

which ones need brightening.

You’ll have noted areas prone to damp.

You’ll have observed where different family

members like to spend their time and why.

You might have come to the conclusion

that major changes are required to make

your home as healthy as possible, or perhaps

you’ve concluded that a few simple tweaks

will do the trick. Either way, good planning

is essential, so take your time, write lots of

lists and do your research thoroughly.

MATERIALS

The ‘make-do-and-mend’ culture

that has grown during the recession

places emphasis on the satisfaction that

can be found in incorporating natural

materials with vintage items. Pieces of

driftwood, collections of shells, that lovely

moss-covered garden bench or a ‘cleverly’

revived piece of furniture all have their place

in the healthy home and its surroundings.

This trend steers away from plastics and

synthetic materials.

HEATING AND VENTILATION

A home needs to be cool in summer,

with plenty of natural ventilation, and

warm in winter. Traditional open fires are

being phased out and home owners are

discovering the joys of installing modern

wood burners, using gas for heating or

installing a heat pump. All these options are

healthy - technology has come a long way

and most choices will see you saving money

in the long run.

STORAGE

While a minimalist style might be fine for

single people or couples without kids, when

the patter of tiny feet comes along, good

storage is going to be vital at every stage of

a child’s life - be they babies or teens - they

come with clutter. The more you can contain

that clutter the better in terms of both your

mental health and general safety.

There are any number of options available,

from professionally designed cupboards

and wardrobes, to the simple lidded plastic

boxes you can buy at chain stores. While

some people claim they thrive in a messy

environment. I know from experience that a

lovely, orderly home is good for the soul.

COLOUR

Choosing the

right colours

for your home

can make a big

difference. Small,

dark rooms

can be opened

up and made

brighter simply

by choosing the

right paint. If

you can afford an

interior designer

or colour

consultant to

help, I do advise

it. Today’s

homes tend to

be more open

plan, so choose a palette of two or three

basic colours and use them throughout to

achieve cohesion and harmony.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.
