Front yard makeover

Hi all,


I would like to share with you our front yard makeover.  I will let the pictures do the talking and include a little bit of commentary as I go.

Aaaaand here we go.  I managed to borrow a mini bobcat to pile up the grass and excess sand.  Paving sand spread to extend paving. (not my best pose)


We can now get to the front door without dirty feet.


I seem to have misplaced some photos.  Anyhoo, the bore and retic has been installed and the garden edging is in place.  I used 200 x 50 treated pine sleepers coated in a 50:50 mix of raw linseed oil and turps.  The topsoil has been laid and mixed in with a rotary hoe.and ready for grass.


Finally the grass is rolled out.  Sir Walter.


Think I need to get the gerny out.


I'll put some more photos in the gallery.  If anyone has questions on how we went around doing anything please don't hesitate.

Great result @darylhewston. Obviously a lot of hard work for you and Deb but well worth it. 


What are your top paving tips you could share with the community to ensure a fantastic result?
