Handyman gives DIYers the know-how to complete home projects, the skills to improve their efforts and hints plus tips to save time and money. Handyman has been the biggest DIY magazine in Australia for seven years.

“We have had a lot of feedback from our New Zealand readers telling us they want a dedicated Kiwi version of Handyman magazine,” says Lee Dashiell, Editor Handyman magazine.

“Kiwis have told us they want home-grown content and independent product recommendations that are readily available to them locally; as well as gardening tips specific to New Zealand’s growing conditions.”

Handyman magazine shows you how, with each issue featuring step-by-step instructions and diagrams for a range of topics including home improvement, building and gardening.

Handyman magazine offers readers a variety of advice ranging from everyday furniture and workshop storage to home repairs and renovation tips, landscaping and gardening ideas. Handyman offers step-by-step project guides for completing a range of projects of various skill levels.
