Am I overreacting?? I think this is really poor but I’m no expert on driveways, I follow a few local concreters on Facebook and have seen photos of several driveways…

Two things happened today...

We paid Vaccaro to do lights under the cupboards like this they put in spots rather than striplights. I think it was a $400 variation.

That’s such a great idea, I think we need to do something similar we need-
Earthworks - weeds removed and levelling
Topsoil and turf
Paved edging for beds

That would include all earthworks - it’s a flat site but lots of weeds as we have been building 70 weeks now! Then put topsoil and turf for around 350m2…

Didn’t have a great day on Friday, I phoned our ‘new’ CSo and wished I hadn’t. She is unbelievably rude. I had three things to ask her:
