To really see how beautiful it is, I have to repost the pictures from start to finished. It is so green and lush, and weed free. For now anyway. I'm sure I'll grow some new weeds an bindi.
Out the back when we first started the retaining wall
Out the back when it was still looking like a dump
Retaining wall finished out the back and filled in with clay from the front
Out the back, weeds in the clay
Out the back before hosing in the filler sand
I haven't taken a photo of it now that it has been rolled and hosed.
And now the front yard
Digging out the front yard to build retaining walls
Front yard when last of the clay mountain had been moved
Base for turf arriving
Front yard with turf base
mmm, fresh grass - we had three pallets

Now for some plants!

We are so close to having grass, imagine being so excited about something so simple. We've had dust and sticky clay for six months now, but this Saturday is the day. 200 square metres of turf will be delivered early Saturday morning.
We've just spent the long weekend spreading the base - two full dump truck loads. Even the dirt looks 100% better than the clay. Stay tuned for pictures of green!
