What did you do over the weekend?

Re: What did you do over the weekend?

Made a start on one of the garden beds in my front yard. Rusty edging from Bunnings as we just wanted a low profile.

 

Doing some more in another section but have sourced a taller profile from StraightCurve.

 

Picked up these great Pineapple Express from Bunnings too actually.  Great colouration, nice and hardy.

This front yard is about to transform!

Bit of gardening but the weather was rubbish.

Re: What did you do over the weekend?

Finished this composite decking for my friend/customer https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Outdoor/Poolside-composite-decking/m-p/32476#M4419 and acquired/planted two new Dragon trees https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Garden/Show-us-your-Dragon-trees/m-p/32482#M3394

Also waterproofed my planter boxes, started painting and filled one with soil. Will finish painting after work during the week and have them filled by the weekend ready for planting.

Enjoyed the beautiful (hot) weather that graced Perth and made progress on my front yard - painting, mulching and the part I'm most excited about, my decking.20191027_165548.jpg

 

Also picked up these new guys.

Repairing Carp Flip Flops...

Shoe glue did fix them.

Fixed a leaking toilet cistern.

Researched Dulux Snapshot.

"Do you know there is a hole in your wall." "Ah you noticed it, you can fix that too." Also noticed the scrape the offending hospital style bed put in the wall as well.

Fixed 2 dining chairs with chair glue 1 to go that needs some major work.

Did lots of prep work on our bathroom, which is in desperate need of repainting. We've also had some mould issues so I wanted to make sure we got rid of all the spores. Hoping to start painting this week.

Re: What did you do over the weekend?

Father in-law is down from QLD and is quite the handyman, so we got stuck into a few projects...

* Started building a 4X2 deck to extend out from the alfresco. Deck is down and uprights are cemented in for fencing on 3 sides.
* Converted privacy slat fence between the house and side fence to a twin gate, using existing fencing.
* Added to kid's existing Copper Log climbing platform, monkey bars and swings with a new platform to sit on and cemented in more Copper Log uprights and cross posts for another swing and hammock.

Was going to take photos, but we were pretty flat out and today (Sunday) was so hot.
42 degrees Monday, so I'm catching up on all those streaming services we pay for and leaving the yard for another day. :smile:

Had a big tidy up inside and outside the house on Saturday, including giving the deck a scrub. Bit more gardening on Sunday morning and adding some more additions to the backyard watering system for the summer.
