My own front garden make-over…
Before…(July 2016) A bit wild and bushy…
A massive pruning, a trip to the Dump…New plants with a bit of contrasting colour and shape…A NEW FRONT YARD!!
Total make-over cost around $550.00.
And the result 5 months later in December 2016 is here…
A nice little wall made from “lava stone”
Before and after with cut Sandstone Blocks
A Wall made from Sandstone fragments
This front yard won for me “Best New Garden” in the Camden/Campbelltown Garden Competition in 1986. It also took out “Best Overall Garden” in Bradbury NSW.
Five weeks before judging, my wife, knowing how competitive I am, entered our yard in the competition even though it was a junk heap…totally rubbish!! She certainly knew what made me tick!! Well, I got to work ….Levelled everything, built Sandstone-Capped Slate garden surrounds with new plants, Turf and paved driveway. I finished the day before judging, and the rest is history.
