The side yard has been a labour of love but here are some progress shots. Getting close to finishing.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @LizRae.
I've made contact with a few of our timber suppliers in WA and it doesn't appear that something as thin as 7mm Merbau is available for us to order. I can recommend the Specrite 69 x 15mm x 2.7m Finger Jointed Merbau Screening as the 15mm thickness would also suit the minimalistic look achieved in this project. There is also a Specrite 18 x 200 x 2000mm Merbau Hardwood Garden Border Roll which you might like to consider as it would look quite attractive as well.
We look forward to hearing more about your own garden project and would encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance or would like to share it with the community. I trust you'll find loads more inspiration for it, just like this project, as our creative members are sharing their own amazing projects here all the time.
Quick question, did you plant the plant with the pots that came with it? if so, what is the purpose of it?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @kindermarki. It's great to have you join us and many thanks for jumping straight into the conversation.
Let me mention @Chaks_DIY to see if they are able to answer your question.
It appears they might have just set them out like that for planning purposes and removed the pots once they were ready to plant.
We look forward to hearing about the projects you have going on around your own home and garden and would encourage you to let us know if you ever need assistance or have something to share with the community.
Welcome to the Workshop!
I didn't plant them in the pots, however it was a useful and easy way to lay them out for spacing before planting.
Thanks @Chaks_DIY it looks amazing
It would be good for others if you can let us know what materials and tools you have used and just an overview what steps you have taken. I am thinking to do the similar project soon so needs some advise if you don't mind
I guess weed mat is required before putting gravel stones? Also do you need to cement those centre tiles for stability?
Hi @kalradeepak @
More than happy to share the process materials and give a general overview and answer any specifics.
I'll post the overview in the next few days.
To answer your questions.
In terms of a general overview, It was generally bits and pieces over time and a lot of changes for the design. So there is no real appropriate approach I can provide but this is how I would do it in hindsight.
In terms of material, please feel free to ask me specifically which item you are interested in.
Re: fake fence cover for hws. You may be restricted by regulations as to how close combustible material can be to the nearby gas heater. Just a thought
