Backyard Update

Didn't realise how messy laying turf can be espcially when it starts raining, took longer to clean the mess then to lay the turf.
End result, Love It!!!

7 cubic meters of top soil

80 sq meters of Sir Walters Soft Leave Baffalo Turf

Half Black Concrete along the side of the house.

170 days after handover; Driveway

We had the driveway done just a few days before Xmas, it was the last bit concrete which needed to be done. We intentionally made sure it was one of the last building jobs to be completed.

My partner and I created the mix as we didn't like any other exposed concrete we saw from Concrete supplier in SE Melbourne.
So the lovely people at Vic Mix made a concrete mix to our specifications and named it. Wasn't cheap even at trade price, but we love the outcome and effect.

The photos do not give a true indication on how the driveway looks due to the sun.
