Planting Lilly Pillies along the fence line and laying new turf refreshed this backyard.





The project


We've spent the extra time at home finishing our backyard. We started with framing off the area with a nice garden bed and an extra decking step, and filled the bed with 20m of garden soil.






Lots of digging, planting and hard work, but it's getting there.




We planted 20 Lilly Pillies and finished it off with our beautiful new Sir Walter lawn.
