After the barrel drains had been replaced down the western fence, we eagerly started the beginning of much landscaping to our property. The block measures over 1000 square metres, or nearly a third of an acre, so there was plenty to work with.
When the workmen had finished the drainage, they kindly did some initial sectioning of the back into roughly three tiers, for the consideration of a couple of slabs of beer. This would form the basis of the entire backyard. At that stage we were working on the Big Picture; the specifics would come later.
