Making a house a home - Part 2

With Spring here and some warm weekends we have been able to get out in to the yard and work on finishing some of the projects underway.
If you are a regular reader you will remember how we started working on the back and front gardens, if not you can read more about it here..
Out the front under the front steps has had a plant and some stones added, still need to get some larger stones and not sure what else yet, maybe some sort of ornament.

Out the back...
I spent one Saturday afternoon on the little cactus garden, next time I really must wear gloves so my arms dont end up looking like I had a fight with a cat haha, so I got the back part all cleared out and the front all weeded and looking cleaner, added in some trellis, this is mainly to stop the cactus growing through the otherside of the rails but I think it looks good too.
The ladder is a very old one that we were given and that John said was unsafe to use, it got put there at one stage to get it out of the way and I kinda like the way it looked so it stays.

The biggest project in the back yard is still a work in progress, but its comming together slowly, with llimited materials for boxing the guys are only able to concrete a little bit at a time.

Cant wait till this area is complete, its going to be the perfect place to spend weekends during spring and summer.

Cheers Lis :)
