Building and Pest Inspection – another item we assess is the Location of Garden Beds

During a Building and Pest Inspection, we assess the location of garden beds relative to the property. Garden beds are not recommended against the side of buildings. Excessive watering can cause a range of moisture related problems. If gardens are located against a building, they should be kept below internal floor levels by a minimum of 75mm so that entry by termites into the building framework can be detected. Moisture around the base of buildings accelerates the decay of building elements and can cause structural issues. Another reason to get a Building and Pest Inspection.
