We had a reverse build which was harder to arrange these inspections We missed our pre-plaster inspection becaus...

And it looks like it’s the wrong colour [emoji849] You're kidding?? We can’t be sure but the photo we were sent seems to suggest it is wrong. It looks lighter than the gutter when it should all be monument, and the neighbour thinks it’s woodland grey. Oh I hope not. Do you have a pic? I’ll try find...

I have digged out every single shrub of these Liriope before demo will be replanting at the front of the house again. The new location will be behind the fence instead of in front of the fence as you see in the picture. https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/65422_1494043153.jpg Your liriope look Devine. H...

Moonshadow does look fabulous but I can see the brick is chipping now which is showing a different colour. With glenfern I found it changes colour throughout the day but remains darker most ...
