Not overly exciting, but it's another job ticked off towards our final occupancy certificate. We used crushed granite and hired a compacter from Bunnings, (about half the price of Kennards)to finish the path up the side of the house. On reflection, the brown looks a lot like dirt. If I were to do it again, I'd probably go with the sandy colour, but it's tidy enough, and whilst it's a bit up and down in places, it does the job.

Garden beds

We've finished some garden beds down the narrow side of the house. It's small area, but we wanted something other than the fence to look at out of our kitchen window, so we've planted some left over bromeliads, clivias, birdsnests and Aloe vera. We're hoping the weather will be good next week so that we can get some crushed granite in, to finish off the pathway.
