This is how our front garden looked when we got the keys to our house.
My letterbox is huge, I wanted something different but mainly I want to be able to have a big stainless steel address plate. For privacy reasons I have deleted my street name but I have the full street name where 'Lime & Mortar' is placed. The extra part becomes a good seat when watching the kids at the front.
We plan to have all the aggregate pavers sealed in gloss & add a merbau deck to the portico :)
Here is how my house looks today!
