Now that we have finished with the fence between us and the neighbours, the next job will be to replace the fence facing the street.

This part of the fence is about 19m long. there is also a very small side fence with a gate. Replacing that is the easy part…

What isnt going to be easy is correcting the sloping ground level which needs to be levelled out for the future lawn etc. If the ground level of the backyard goes up, the soil needs to be kept back by a retaining wall before we can even think of putting up a new fence.

Therefore the next job is going to be:

  • 19m of retaining wall
  • 19m of Colorbond fence(fence will sit on the wall)
  • Retaining wall drainage
  • Drainage sumps
  • 1 gate

Speaking to the landscaper, its going to be a beast of a job and will take a lot of time and effort to complete.
