We love our home in Barwon Heads. We bought it a couple of years ago.
The floor plan was perfect for us and the largish back yard had lots of potential, but it had never been properly landscaped. Actually, that’s an understatement.
The previous owner had done little more than throw blackened wood chips everywhere. Depressing to look at and of little use if you want to use the space for social summer occasions.
Our long-term plan is to develop an Asian-style garden. But as an interim measure we’ve recently had instant turf laid. A garden shed and a few trees have been added too. It looks so much better.
It’s a long way from our Asian garden, but they say patience is one of the strengths of people from Asian cultures. We’ll see how we go in that regard.
So here is our quick ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo story of recent developments in our back yard. Our own backyard blitz!
