Landscaping Day 106 – More backyard decking

More work on the back decking the last few days.  It is at a stage that we can use it – just in time for big family Christmas.  With the weather forecast to be 30 degress, we will sure make good use of the outdoor space.  The spotted gum is looking really good.

We requested to have decking screws to install the decking to the subframe as these will not come loose as easily, last longer and require lower maintenance.  Previously when we just had nails, we found that they came loose and consequently the decking lifted up from the frame.

The decking instantly makes the backyard look bigger.

In the next few photos you can see extra concrete laid to complete the circular area outside the rumpus room window and decking.

Nice landscape.May I know what is the total budget for this.
I just finish my house 2 1/2 months back and now doing the retaining wall as well as landscape.I found most things here very expensive.The H beam for the retaining is huge .Timber sleepers material cost is ok.Did you use 200 x 100 or 200 x 75mm?
We built the IMPERIAL 54 with Metricon
Thanks
