So in this one we cut down some ugly cypress trees that were growing along the driveway and planted baby pittosporums. They're fast growing so hopefully they bush up soon.

In this one we've cut down a fig and a pomegranate that were old and ugly as well, scraped off mounds of bark chip and sprayed the weeds, ready for new grass seed in a few months. Hubby has done the lawn edging so it looks really different. We also cut down a huge hedge from along the driveway.

This was the front when we bought it. You can see the hedge and a hint of the cypress trees that we chopped down. Looks a bit bare at the moment but it'll look awesome when we're done (hopefully)

Looks great!! I love gardening. We have heaps of established agaves & a oak tree I'm about to put on gumtree haha!! I was hoping a landscaped would want them as I have heaps!
Not long until we are in our house I can't wait 😱 so nervous.

We went to a kitchen showroom today and sat down with a designer for an hour and a half and he was amazing. Gave us so many great ideas and an estimated price and it's a little bit less than we had expected, even with our dream features included :-) he's coming out to give a proper quote next Sunday and we also have 2 other companies coming next week so should have a good idea of the cost soon. Property prices in our area have skyrocketed since we bought 12 months ago so we're borrowing against the equity in our house to fund it, so need to get the valuation done ASAP in case the property market crashes lol!

@A-Squared, we have another one around the back that is much bigger. I wouldn't have cut it down if it was our only one. No loss of figs in this house (ps, they're delicious!)!
Update - my mum has offered to buy us a feature tree for the front and I've always wanted a weeping cherry, so that's going in in a few weeks! Yay!

It's great to live somewhere you've done up and appreciate it rather than your tenants getting all the joy!
