New front garden

New front garden

When we first bought our house it had this massive tree over growing. Ended up cutting down the tree and then hiring a dingo to remove the final stump, flatten and level out the ground including taking out any roots. 


Then built a retaining wall on our boundary line to hold a simple garden and grassed the remainder of the area.

Re: New front garden

What a fantastic transformation, @burnsie. Your project has undoubtedly improved the street appeal.

 

By the size of the tree, it looks like it could have been a bit of a struggle removing the stump. Did you have any particular issues, or did the Dingo do the job just fine? Also, what sort of plants did you go with in the new garden bed?

 

Many thanks for sharing, and I look forward to your next project.

Re: New front garden

Thanks Michael, we like to think it’s got the best street appeal on our street now. The dingo managed to get it done but it took a full day as it did struggle with some so had to have a few goes at certain parts. 

plants wise was a variety, Lilly pillies (couple different types), greyvillia and a couple others forgot the names but a bit of a variety with colour to make it pop.
