WHAT'S HAPPENING AT AHLG?
Although the COVID-19 saga has continued to take its toll on us, we have tried to carry on as normal as possible this past month, and we feel we are making the most of being able to still 'keep our door open'. We certainly feel for the many local businesses that have not been so fortunate.
Our residential maintenance division has been hit the hardest, so we have spent countless hours reshuffling our schedules and doing what we can to keep everyone busy. We are extremely grateful for our amazing clients who have been so understanding of some late changes. Unfortunately, there will have to be more to come no doubt.

JOKE OF THE MONTH
PRODUCTS WE LOVE & RECOMMEND
The Rainbird ESP-TM2 Irrigation Controller
This controller is our controller of choice for residential irrigation installations. The Rainbird has simple and powerful functionality with up to 3 programs and up to 4 start times per program. It comes in 4, 6, 8 and 12 station models and has all of the usual extras you’d expect from a rainbird controller. The best feature in our opinion is the optional wifi module that allows you to access, operate and monitor the controller from an app on your phone!
PARTNER PROFILE
On The Run
With over 140 locations across South Australia, it was an easy choice for us to use OTR fuel cards for our vehicles. Each vehicle has their own unique card which makes it easy for us to identify the monthly spends and purchases. With most stores stocked with oils, food and coffee it is our one stop shop!
WHAT THE F...ACTS
Oak trees are struck by lightning more than any other tree! Did you also know that they don’t produce acorns until they are 50 years old?
RECENT PROJECTS

Ingham's Group Limited
Our commercial maintenance crew have recently taken over this large site down at White Sands. The previous maintenance contractor had let it go to be in an unruly site, so an initial tidy up was carried out, with a team of 7 blitzing it in 1 day to have it looking cared for again. This also included our specialist irrigation team carrying out a full audit of the irrigation system, which led to a list of repairs and replacements.

Our next step was to plant out over 40 native trees, 170 hedging plants and 170 ground cover, plus irrigation, to act as a huge wind break alongside the weighbridge. From here, 200 more ground cover and another new irrigation system and things will be looking a heap better! Fortnightly visits from the maintenance crew will keep things looking great year-round. We love taking on these large sites and using our specialist skills and knowledge to implement different schedules to keep our client happy.

PREPARING YOUR GARDEN FOR WINTER
The cold and wet months are now upon us, and with new season comes new gardening requirements. During Autumn and Winter you may find a few diseases creep into your lawn due to extra moisture. If you have a beautiful, lush lawn and you want to eliminate the germination of winter grasses popping up, we can help. Are you unsure of what you should adjust your irrigation to, or how to do so? We can help!
