Are mature plants worth anything

You can also ring around mature tree suppliers to see if they are interested. Some have the equipment and skills to dig out and transplant large trees.

Wall tap and mixer vs sink tap and mixer? Thoughts? Pros and

Yes, the base where the tap meets the sink or benchtop is usually a pain to clean.

Wall mounted taps are much better for cleaning, I would go with that option.

The agapanthus will fill out the pot really quickly. You only need 1 plant in there, and even then you will probably be pulling it out and splitting it into…

The upper floor acrylic render was completed this week, and the downpipes installed. The ceilings inside were also painted.

I would recommend moving the toilet door. By making the passage and WC smaller you should be able to fit a linen cupboard in the hallway. Better than a…

Those dimensions are fine, you'll have plenty of space.
But your designer could also use the space in a more interesting way though, including enclosing the toilet.

We only had workers on site 2 days this past week. They primed the cement render and commenced the acrylic render for the front facade.
