Thinking of a lifestyle change? Tired of
working for someone else? Need fexibility,
health and ftness? Then perhaps a Green
Acres lawn and garden care franchise is
for you! New Zealand's largest service
company is now 20 years young, still going
strong -- and ready to change your life.
GREEN Acres franchise holder Lindsay Mann moved with his family to
Hawke's Bay from Auckland at the beginning of 2011. While living in
Sydney several years ago Lindsay took a landscaping course and became
"hooked" on working in the outdoors.
"Coupled with the stunning Hawke's Bay climate, the franchise is the
perfect job for me," he says. "Coming from Auckland meant it took me
a while to fnd my way around in a new area, but at least there were no
traffc issues! Green Acres is very strong in HB, provides great backup
to franchisees, and regional managers Roy and Tessa Brown are very
supportive. From advertising to tech support, Green Acres are there for
me every step of the way."
Lindsay and his wife Jackie, along with teens Sheridan and Haydyn,
are thoroughly enjoying their lifestyle and say they had wanted to move
away from Auckland for several years. "Living here gives us the laidback
life that we wanted while allowing me to work outdoors".
"Green Acres franchisees have a reputation for professionalism and
I like the fact that, if a customer is dissatisfed for any reason, they are
able to talk to Roy and Tessa or head offce if they prefer," Lindsay says. "I
cannot speak highly enough of the help and support I have received every
step of the way and look forward to a long and happy association, both
with my clients and the Green Acres company."

of history into the family tree of New Zealand

five finalists for the Illustrated Non-fiction
The book showcases the talents and unde-
niable flair of a range of New Zealand fashion
designers, from the well-known to those who
have slipped out of the public eye.
The Hawke s Bay Museum s Trust collec-
tion has played a significant role in this book.
The authors have been closely involved
with the museum s fashion and textiles col-
lection with Claire Regnault, who worked as
curator at Hawke s Bay Museum & Art Gal-
lery before moving to Wellington.
Many of the trust s garments were selected
and photographed for the book, showcasing
the quality and diversity of the collection.
The awards will be announced at functions
in Wellington on Wednesday, July 27.
