Front yard makeover


Front yard makeover



It’s the final week of our Make It Yours series. This time it’s our front yard that gets a thorough overhaul courtesy of garden guru, landscaper and all-round legend, Dale Vine.


“I’ve come to give this house a bit of street appeal, and to do some cool stuff with a really achievable budget,” Dale explains.


The agenda started with a thorough overhaul of the garden. Dale also paints the house, re-sprays the concrete driveway and adds a modular deck to the front door. He also changes the letterbox, shows how easy it is to install a high-tech doorbell, and gives the door a new look.


“The exterior is really dated right now - the yuccas will go, and we’re going to paint it with a nice coastal grey, which will look great,” Dale says. “We’ll also freshen up the concrete driveway with a lick of paint, put some new plants in and bring in some new instant turf to really green it up.”


Dale uses some uniquely Australian plants to give the yard a modern, stylish look. “My favourite plants are natives – they were here before we were, and they like the conditions, so why not stick with them?” he explains.


He doesn't do the hard yakka alone – Dale got help from team members from Bunnings, who are on hand to show how simple it is to attempt similar transformations at your home via easy-to-follow how-to videos.
