Creating an underground bunker might sound like the actions of an eccentric character from an American prepper show, however, more and more Australians are choosing to do just that in recent years. As opposed to some of the crazier conspiracy theories that prompt some people to choose this slightly unusual home addition, in Australia it's more common as a reaction to the threat of natural disasters such as bushfires, severe storms or cyclones.
You can define your landscape and add affordable style to it with today's stepping stones. With a variety of paver materials, style, texture, and size you are no longer limited to the same multi-coloured pebble and stone that sucks the soul of many yards. Here are six creative ways of using these purposeful stepping stones to create a great-looking landscape. Randomly placed pavers Forego the typical symmetric placement of pavers and let your thoughts run wild with random placement.
There are lots of different elements you can use in landscaping design, but of all the durable, long-lasting, minimum-effort materials, stonework is hard to beat. And while there are plenty of ways to use it in your garden, the best way to show off attractive stone is to create a rock garden. Rock gardens, or rockeries as they're sometimes called, are a great landscaping project for all ability levels because it's pretty hard to go wrong.
There's something undeniably magical about a good campfire. Sitting around with friends or family, watching the flames and enjoying the warmth as night draws in has brought people comfort and enjoyment since humans first discovered how to make fire. Although sitting outdoors is understandably more popular during the summer, there's no real reason you can't have a campfire party at pretty much any time of the year. As long as you wear warm clothes and sit close enough to the fire to keep cosy, everyone will have a good time.
If you are planning on building a patio in your home, you should consider purchasing and installing paving stones. Interlocking pavers are attractive and stylish, and you can use different designs and stone colours to achieve extraordinary visual impact in your landscape. Also, paving stones are durable and low maintenance in comparison to general surfaces such as asphalt. On the other hand, the success of your outdoor improvement project will depend on the patio installation process.
Hello! My name is Ronald and this is my landscaping blog. Today, I would like to discuss the topic of landscaping and how you can make your garden and the grounds of your property look great. When I was growing up, we didn't have a garden. We lived in a city centre apartment so all my mother had was a few plant pots on the balcony. I knew that when I grew up, I wanted a big garden all of my own. When I bought my new house, I contacted a landscaping company and I worked closely with them to plan the design of my garden. I am so happy. It looks great.
