Bahaha. Great job cleaning up.

That's all you probably needed to do!

Looks great twl.

Ecodeck / modwood is a really great product but yes, gets very hot like asphalt in the summer sun.
Excellent job!

Thx a lot for your quick response. A bit weird. Do people wash clothes with storm water?


Yep. All new houses built in the last 8 years or so, along with at least one garden tap and all toilet cisterns.

Ahhh. Yep. That's couch. I've got it too, but in my case I don't mind as it's on my nature strip and it's not smothering the buffalo. Lovely and soft amongst the buffalo.
Post back if you have luck with the herbicide

I believe that's Kikuyu. If the runners are quite pale and underground that's going to be confirmed.

Um not much you can do other than chase the outbreaks and pull it out. Doable, just painful.

Definitely prune often. You need to keep in mind that as the hedge matures, the trunk and branches get woody and lack any decent leaf growth. Another reason to prune often is to increase the density of leaf.

Only issue is; "Syzygium paniculatum can be susceptible to psyllids, the insects that can cause leaf pimpling.."
->https://www.gardeningwithangus.com.au/syzygium-paniculatum-lilly-pilly/
I still highly recommend resilience.

Highly recommend the Syzygium Resilience - lilly pilly.
I have both this and the Aussie Southern variety and I have to say the resilience colour is the best of the two, and no psyllid issues compared to my Aussie Southern variety.
By the look of the OP pics, these look like my Aussie Southern variety.

if you have a dog, don't plant brunfelsia as their seed pods are poisonous.
Does it get full sun, IE. Was the pic taken in the morning?

My tips are;
Casade Lilly Pilly
Resilience Lilly pilly

Plant in a row. Trim it as much or as little as you want. I'd lean toward cascade as their foliage is spectacular all year round.

Guys. The rules regarding engineering also apply at any height wall (yes, even 30cm) within 1 metre of a boundary.

After two years of occupancy we finally have our lighting sorted on the ground floor.
-Vossloh downlights with gimble deep fittings.
-panorama pendant from beacon over the dining table

Still got some plans underway to fit out upstairs.
So far very happy to tick off some long delayed updates.

Congrats ! Always a bitter sweet time when it comes to the end. No one ever said building a home was easy or fun.
You made it though. Enjoy

I used this stuff which isn't cheap but was highly recommended to me by a landscaper who uses alot of natural stone.
but I have to say it works a treat on sandstone. Bat poo and cockatoo bombs just wash clean, no stain. Pardon the pun.
Amber tiles. You can probably find it cheaper elsewhere.

Personally I'd hand weed through winter. Herbicide treatment is possible with Buffalo but there isn't much of a big deal to pull out the offending weeds

Having had a similar build on piers/posts/bearers I share your concerns. Avoid any possible water movement to your piers/posts and your all good. In my case I had piers in direct water flow/downhill flow which caused 1) doors and plaster work damage 2) moisture pressure through my sub floor which was constructed with yellow-tongue flooring.
At all costs, i suggest avoiding any water/moisture under the house. So, divert any ingress water away from the house. It doesn't need to be drastic, but use surface drains and slope to your advantage!

Bathroom looks awesome. Great when those final touches get done..
What's the plan with the ramp between the retaining walls? Grass or concrete?
