This week on Stuff I'm talking about how to get Resource Consent. It's not an easy ride, but we got there and it didnt take as long as I feared it might. It means though that we want to be smart about all that great outdoors that comes with our property. All the green is something we're dedicated to looking after, and if we do it right, it can be not only a playground for our boys, but a real resource for their and their neighbourhood's future. So what better way than to get some experts to help. The awesomesauce folk at the Unitec Landscape Architecture Department are coming on board to help us not only plan out what we'll be doing long term, but to think smart about how we can save money by germinating some of our plants ourselves in a strategic and longterm manner. If you're thinking about building, this might be a great thing to start thinking about even now, so you have things to get in the ground when you actually have ground ready.
