The house is looking great Dave!
Our backyard, other than a few citrus trees and potted plants, is still a giant sand pit. Hoping to get it sorted now the…

The only thing we wished we did was extend the alfresco paving out a metre and along our bedroom sliding door. Now the plan is to just put some stones…

That's awesome! We've not had our house valued but I imagine we'd be around break even with the slump in the Perth market. Might look at getting it done if…

Hey Tommy
Yeah we did upgrade to the izone controller along with some izone lighting (it was cheaper to get six ilights than 4 regular LEDs with a dimmer)
Pretty…

Yeah that's probably the size of ours. No dramas fitting two cars in ours

That's great you got palmetto included. No idea why our developers decided on couch... guess because it's cheaper but I really don't like it

I can't remember off the top of my head. Around 6 metres I think.

Yeah. Looks so much better now.
Might have to check AG Buffalo out when we do the back. Plan on putting some palmetto out the back as well

Thanks! Dreading tackling the sandpit out the back. I think I'll aim to get the paving and shed done in the next couple of weeks but leave the grass until…

We paid about $7 per square metre for the upgrade to Buffalo. I just really didn't want to have to deal with couch and it invading all the garden beds.…

The front garden was done this week by the developers landscapers. Looks much better than just having sand everywhere
Also glad we paid a little bit to upgrade to buffalo…

Yeah, I wouldn't be happy with the builder and would fight them over the grout. Sounds like they have been a bit of a nightmare.

Awesome stuff! Glad it all went well.
We had the bath plug go walkabout at our final inspection. Seems to happen a lot. The supervisor carried spares in his car

It helps having the landscapers throw some ideas at us.
I've sort of marked out where things are going to go in the backyard.

Yeah. Our problem is that we aren't really gardeners. As long as it looks neat and tidy we'll be happy. Wasn't too sure on having such a large grassed area…
