The backyard and dead side ‘before’

I wanted to take some in progress / before pictures.

The wood sleepers are our back boundary, when they sell the land behind us I want those owners to have the option of being able to build right up to the fence line, so we didn’t want to put anything to solid in place.  This is the place where the rainwater tanks are going.

The buckets are very useful for moving sand and gravel.


This is down the dead side, past the laundry door, my husband did a wet system for the stormwater, we intend to have it plumbed into the house so that the whole house can run of rainwater.  You can see the corner of the neighbours pool being built.


Standing in the neighbours yard looking along the back of ours.  We have a stormwater easement running across the back of our property.  We would have liked to dig it totally out like our neighbours did except we have an inspection point in the middle so we couldn’t .SDC11323

Before the neighbours built there retaining wall we put a bit of pipe in for the plumber to run the hose from the rainwater tank down to the house.SDC11325

This all needs to be paved! Looking from one end and then the other.


Yep those two grey walls are a bit daunting.


My hubby is so impressed with all the gravel we have to move!  The parents loaned us there car and trailer.
