Thanks so much.
Many were chosen just on what they looked like- and even the landscaper unfortunately doesn’t know the name of some of the succulent varieties.
Here’s the front…

It was just included in the base house price. It’s apparently slimline, but I reckon it still has to be a metre wide. I think it’s 5000L from memory

I think they were about $200 each and there’s 10 in total Holy moly. I’m just glad i convinced the landscaper to use them!
Now I’ve upped the security…

Aww thanks Cat. I think the landscaper is just as happy as we are! He is sending a professional photographer over on Wednesday. He was going to wait until it…

Oops. Forgot to show you the kitchen splashback. We got slightly smaller pots to save money, given these species already aren’t cheap, they will grow fast, and also, we have…

Our issue was that the gutter hadn’t been installed with the correct fall, and also that we didn’t have enough downpipes on the alfresco roof- wasn’t in line with plumbing…

Lol thank god no!! I wouldn’t let Coral Homes do another thing for money !

Thanks so much :-) The timber was about $13k, paving about $25k, firepit approx $14k.

28 d28 dMrsJMMrsJM posted:

I saw Bunnings sells it for about $43 per lineal metre. Surely it wouldn’t be double the cost from elsewhere...?

28 d28 dMrsJMMrsJM posted:

Yeah the plans look like wider timber, but quote was for 90 x 90 so I’m ok with that aspect. I think they decided to have them set out closer…
