Entertaining myself with landscaping ideas while we wait.

They do clean, but it may not be as clean as you'd like. Ours is so dusty at the moment that the carpet sends up puffs of dust.

You get three coats of dulux paint. Was and Wear is at extra cost.

$680 including the fencing either side and the lock. Went for the merbau as the plain paling gates are a bit meh.

Went for a quick visit yesterday. Fences look good despite the delays to get them.
