Luckily the front yard was pretty level so we just had to add the top soil and dig out the garden beds. We decided that we would get the letterbox bricking done professionally (best decision ever) but we bagged and painted it ourselves. We bought the letter box insert from bunnings.
Once we had all the top soil in and level it was turf time. We went with a buffalo grass as the leaf is a bit thicker but it’s great for our area where we have salt in the soil and we get the heat and frost, so we needed something tough but soft under foot.
While the boys where laying the truf the women ( mum and I) did what we do best and went shopping.... That’s plant shopping and we got all our plants from the local nursery “Turtle’s” then we started planting.
