Fernlea is about to get a face lift, she will have a whole new look. Over the next few weeks there will be blokes doing landscaping, the mud, the uneven surfaces, the rough garden edges will be all gone. WooHoo!
Because organising these big changes will take up most of our time, I won’t be blogging again till November, when I will post some before and after shots. If you can’t wait and would like to see what’s happening day by day please join us on the Fernlea Facebook page, where you will get to see the changes in real time.
Up till now we have created temporary pathways using post peel (see photo) and have done our best to tame the weeds and Kikuyu grass. This organic approach has meant we could change our minds relatively easily about how we want the area to look and be used, it has certainly been a creative journey.
We are now more than ready to make the spaces permanent with hard pathways, an archway, screens, flower bed edging, and retainer walls.
The photos below have been my inspiration.
The landscaping will be carefully planned to ensure for good drainage and forward thinking, like laying pipes we will need for upcoming projects such as an outdoor bath.
We are also very excited about upgrading our front gate and signs, at the same time. The temporary sign we have now, see the photo on the left will be replaced by the signs on the right, classy.
Next time I blog I will be able to share the major makeover Fernlea has had, I am looking forward to that blog.
Back again in November.
