Green grass at last!

Finally, after much work we have (some) grass. What a huge difference. Pool fence also installed - so we are finally ready to complete the rear garden finishing.

Paving paving!

Been very busy over the last 2 weeks and starting to see some significant progress.

Things done:

* All planter boxes completed, rendered and painted
* Alfresco area rendered and painted, outdoor BBQ built
* Front area shaping, leveling and preparation for grass.
* Side pathway levels raised 300mm to compensate for stairs and stormwater
* Pool area tiling completed. We went for Villastone pavers (600x400) in the limestone colour
* Outdoor shower built with hot and cold water
* Pool stage 2 installed, filtration hooked up, power, lighting etc etc
* Travertine laid in Alfresco area

This week sees (hopefully) the side fencing installed, pool frameless glass fencing, turf prep and installation.

Some latest photo's below.
