FINALLY!

Today is exactly two years since we moved in, and yesterday... our landscaping was finished! I still have lots of planting to do - only a little has been done so far.

This photo was taken when we moved in...
And I took these ones today!
That's right - no grass! Dave was keen to have no grass - no lawn to mow and no grass to require a lot of water. I convinced him to have grass in our backyard but we haven't done our backyard yet. That's yellow granite on the nature strip and the path. It's a bit patchy cos it's wet. It does look pretty dry without grass, but with more trees and plants it should look lush - hopefully! I'm planting mondo grass around the entire perimetre of the garden edging (almost 100m!), which I've been cultivating for a while. I think I have enough but it will be pretty sparse to start with. But in time that should do a nice job of defining the garden edges and add some greenery.

I'm just so happy that it's finally been done! Organising everything was the worst - not my forte! But now that's done I can get stuck into planting which I'm excited about!
