Street appeal is a wonderful thing. Not only does it make you feel good about your home as you drive in through the gate everyday, but it is a huge factor for bringing in potential buyers and ultimately selling your house, when the time comes. Here is part two of our front fence / yard transformation…
This post has been a long time coming.
At the beginning of 2015 I wrote my very first “#sagereno” blog post, which was a post about our new (half-finished) front fence. Possibly not something super exciting for readers, but it was pretty satisfying for us to be able to scroll through the ‘before and after’ photos after completing our first proper reno job on our place. The visual satisfaction dimmed the pain of our aching muscles and sunburn.
And now, exactly three years on and having just sold the house, here’s part two of the front fence ‘before & after’ – now complete with landscaping and a few coats of paint…
Tristan, my mum, dad and I painting the fence one Easter weekend. (There was a whole other part of the fence on the other side of the driveway too!)
Corokia ‘Geenty’s Green’ newly planted along the front of the fence, to add a softer layer between the concrete footpath and large painted fence.
The corokia plants slowly forming a low hedge after a couple of years of growth. And olive trees from the garden on the other side of the fence starting to poke up above the fence, for added privacy from the road. ( Paint — Fence: Resene Rakaia // Capping: Resene Black White )
A shot of the inside of the fence – painted and planted. (You can find the ‘before & after’ post on this garden HERE)
