We’ve recently renovated the house in time to sell & upsize as we’re outgrowing our current space so I thought I’d share the journey with you all with one half of our garden!
Check out the images below to see the area in stages, disclaimer – I had no idea what I was doing!
Step 1 – start to dig the old mud out.
Photo reference for how deep the mud was!
Step 2 – Flatten the surface ready for the grass area to be set up
Step 3 – Frame built for the artificial grass
Step 4 – Fascia boards ready at the walls
Step 5 – Get some stone in around the grass frame
Step 6 – There is rubbish everywhere, panic!
Step 7 – Frame building & levelling things out so everything is perfectly straight!
Step 8 – Build and paint! Add the grano dust into the area to make it perfectly flat for the grass to sit on and whacker plate it down. Add stones to the fascia to make it look pretty too!
Step 9 – Roll and cut the grass to shape
And finally Step 10 – complete the thing!
What do you all think?! It was hard work but I feel it was definitely worth it!
Pergola cost was £420
Grass cost was £300
Stone cost was £120
Fascia cost was £20
Paint cost was £13
Total cost £873 for a huge transformation!
