On the street (near) where we live

December 26, 2010

I took a few (iphone) snapshots of some local gardens on our evening walk with the furkids tonight...

I love the deck that stretches all the way to the footpath, and the way they've created levels through the use of rock, on what is a pretty much flat block.
They've only used ground covers in front of the rocks, and small shrubs behind, which also look cool against the stacked stone and beige rendered walls.



They've used river pebbles in places too - it all blends in beautifully - LOVE it.

The pics don't do this one justice.  Their driveway is plain, charcoal concrete, but they've edged it with random slate.  The right hand image is a touch too jungle-like for me, but through the trees you can just get a glimpse of a custom rust-finish gate.  I'll try to zoom in on it...
I don't know if it would keep our crazy hounds enclosed, but I might just have to look into getting something similar.  Dare we break the horizontal merbau side gate trend???

I felt like such a stalker snapping away through the streets.  Would you be flattered or sus of a random taking pics of YOUR house??????

Very nice. Love the brush fence and please break the merbau gate trend - too much maintenance to keep looking their best. I'd be flattered at the snaps so long as I wasn't bum up working in the garden at the time.

Deb, that sounds like a challenge to sneak a bum up shot of you and post it here without you knowing :)

Jazz at the rate you guys are going your place will be 100% finished by the end of Jan. It's a tad far for us to come snapping on our evening walk though so I'll have to stalk your blog instead!!

Cheeky - I deserved that.
