Re: Side Yard - Landscaping

Hi @Hereine 

Welcome to the community !

I used Pittosporum, Pittosporum tenuifolium (Silver Sheen) for the plants against the fence and Liriope Evergreen giant against the wall.

 

I didn't use cement however it is common practice to use it. I also left the soil care but am considering getting some cover soon !

 

Best of luck and feel free at ask anything else !

Re: Side Yard - Landscaping

Hi All,

I am looking to get some of these:Specrite 18 x 200 x 2000mm Merbau Hardwood Garden Border Roll 

Was wondering what kind of pegs do I need for this ? I can't see any from the dame brand. Any links ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Maloy 

 

I used the - Whites 270 x 20 x 3mm Garden Edging Pegs for all my edging. They blend in quite well and aren't bulky like others.

 

Kind regards

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Maloy. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.

 

It's great to see you have already received a helpful reply from @Chaks_DIY. You might like to check those pegs are suitable for your garden border roll as it could be too thick.

 

If you would like to stick with the hardwood theme I can suggest using Lattice Makers 50 x 25 x 300mm Hardwood Garden Stakes - 10 Pack. Alternatively, you could use Whites Outdoor 450mm Heavy Duty Steel Flat Stake Sleeper Pegs. You would need to use timber screws with both of these options when fixing the stake to the edging.

 

We look forward to hearing more about your garden project and would encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance or would like to share it with us.
