Auckland Landscape Supplies June 2010 Newsletter

Hi team,

Eight years ago Mike had a dream, he wanted to create a landscape supply yard that not only stocked a large range of products that appeal to a wide range of people, he also wanted to create a safe place for people to become inspired by landscaping and educated about how to do it (if they so chose).

The past five years got a little hectic with the arrival of our three children, the twins Kees and Mia and then later our little Riaan all in the space of three years and then we were tails down and bottoms up managing the three youngsters while also trying to fulfil our dream with Auckland Landscape Supplies.

This year Kee's and Mia started school, a big step for both us and them but one that has opened up a lot of opportunities for us. With this new "free time" that we now (apparently) have, we have decided to write a monthly newsletter which details a few key points of interest. This will include any in store specials that we are offering, gardening tips for the month and articles of interest. We sincerely hope that you will opt to keep receiving our newsletters and that you will find them of huge value.

Kind regards and happy gardening everyone

Bridget and Mike Bryant


The Newsletter/Website Launch Offer

This is the best offer we have given away EVER! It is valid for ALL of our BULK and BAGGED products and is only available to those people who receive our newsletter and visit our website.


Bridget's Vege Patch

I know that most of you will think that just because we own a Landscape Supply Yard that we are Landscapers. This is not true. Mike is a builder by trade and I was a primary school teacher. Last year Mike built me a really cool vege patch using timber retaining walls. I have to admit that so far I have had a lot of enjoyment but mixed success. Please join me in my home grown veges journey where I will blog my efforts over the next year. I am going to draw from my limited knowledge, a few books and gardening guru Heather Tait from Living Earth (you may have seen Heather on the Good Morning Show, where she has a regular gardening piece) I also want this to be an interactive blog where you can write me about some of your own sucesses or questions...

so it started in May with a very random looking patch...More »

Auckland Landscape Supplies July 2010 Specials and Tips

Hi team,

Wet, Wet, Wet! That's all I have to say about June really and apart from the mud underground this is not necessarily a bad thing. We desperately needed this water through the country and it does keep the frost away. Also my two five year olds are happy because rainy days mean extra clicks on the walking school bus which equals more certificates and badges! The down side is that the winter illnesses have arrived. I don't know about you, but we five have all been terribly sick for most of June, I am optimistically hoping that this is our lot for the winter season.

The cold definitely has not stopped you lot. We have had a record number of people take us up on our free quarter meter special which we ran in June. We are happy as this means that;

  1. You actually read the club newsletter and
  2. You visited our cool new website.

Mike and I hope that you find this month just as informative and useful.

Kind regards and happy gardening everyone
