Maladies, Monsters and Mayhem!

Thank you Farmweld's customers

We’ve been sitting here wondering how to write this particular post. The last few months have been challenging, and we’re wading our way through a backlog of quotes and work that has built up. Earlier this year Tricia’s health relapsed, then just as the busiest Spring to date hit, we found ourselves dealing with a stalker who

‘Eleanor’ Heritage Farm Gate in Yarramalong, NSW

It was time to replace a old ‘bodgy’ fitting gate with something that would complement and grace the entrance to this lovely country property. Alternative access to an adjoining paddock was also needed, so a smaller, matching gate was the answer. Clients are quite often worried that gates won’t fit, especially when ordering from interstate. However so long as we know the distance between your posts, ie the gap, your gate will be made to fit perfectly. The customers were rapt with the outcome and this is what they had to say…

The Unconventional Guide to Garden Arches

Don’t try to tailor your plant to any old support structure. Tailor your support to your plant and really show off those assets. Remember, no big lady looked good in an undersized garment!

Daylesford gate

Quite often we’re asked if we can replicate an old heritage gate that someone’s seen and fallen in love with. The usual scenario is that you’ve got an older property which has lost the original gates but you haven’t been able to buy an old gate from anywhere. You really need something ‘old’ to suit. The one gate we’ve been asked about the most is the one shown in the Vic Tourism ad for Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. This gate graces the driveway entrance to the historic Wombat Park Homestead with it’s magnificent gardens.

A hole in the OH&S manual?

It’s a no brainer that workshops are generally not the safest of places and OH&S principles need to be taken seriously. However sometimes there are things which simply can’t be pre-empted, like visiting wildlife! Working in the country certainly has some quirky moments and Graham was close to having his yearly quota in a short span of a week.

Farm memorabilia steel sculpture

Every so often a project comes along which is kind of special. Special not just because it’s going to be something unique and beautiful, but because it holds a huge amount of sentiment for the client, and for us. This metal sculpture was one of those projects.
