I am 95% done on my front yard now! (well the main part of it anyway!) All that's left to do now is the pathway to the utilities and that can wait a while longer...
Today I spent about 3 hrs planting 7 new plants and spreading out 1m3 of mulch - my arms and shoulders already hurt, I hate to imagine how much pain I'm going to be in tomorrow! I also originally only got 0.5m3 of mulch and had to go back for another load, good thing it's only around the corner!
Also, another helpful tip - if you aren't used to doing this kind of thing - shovelling stuff out of a trailer is a LOT easier than off the ground, so hire a trailer and help your back!!
Ok onto the photo's
My double branched weeping silver birch tree and the garden before mulching
3 new plants - Banksia Stumpy Gold
My other 3 new plants Isopogon 'Candy Cones'
Closeup - these flowers are a mauve pink which should be very pretty
After the mulch:
