So by now you would know my most adorable, lovely and very talented husband doesn't have an imagination bone in his body. Oh yes he is totally stuck in the here and now and cant picture anything at all even if I go on and on about how something is going to look.
While for him its taken a great amount of courage ... see more brownie points, my courageous husband ... he he he.... anyways, a great amount of courage to trust me with the house design I do breath a sigh of relief when I can actually show him something before it all happens.
For months now I have been trying to explain how I want the front yard to look and how I want to use layers and garden boxes to make a horrendous sloped site usable but he just shakes his head and says he will see it when its built.... god knows how that's possible since he is building it but still!
Now this is the brilliant bit - a minor issue with the builder potentially having to move the meter box means all my front yard plans have come to life. If you can ignore the little wall on the side (No longer needed) this is how I want my front yard to look?
The garden is going to be fairly formal in design, lots of casual hedging type things and two lovely ornamental trees taking pride of place.
Down the side of the house towards the front door there will be a screen of bamboo helping give us some more privacy from our neighbours.
So What do you think?? Will it work, does it look good??? Its all starting to come together and I'm more nervous now than I ever was before! This is where I start taking design risks and although I'm confident that I can do it ... I'm sure there will be plenty of mistakes along the way!
