Did you run into any issues with fence being taller? - I'm currently undertaking my first Reno in Melbourne Australia and was wondering if the fencing heights caused any local council issues or if its okay to exceed standard fencing heights?

Hi
In Melbourne you can legally have a boundary fence up to 2.0m in height without a permit. If you want to have a higher fence, you have to apply for building dispensation from the local council. Usually his requires filling out a form and paying it to council to assess. It helps if you can get the neighbors consent too. If you are given approval, you then need a building permit to erect the fence because it is deemed to be a structure requiring an engineer to design the footings.
I went through this process with my fence.
If you need further help, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am also available on email, at domnic@bagnatoarchitecture.com.au

Hi
We started with real grass and it stayed green throughout the 7 years we were at the house.
When we decided to sell th ehouse we installed synthetic grass because we thought buyers might not want to keep a lawn mower for such a small strip.

What is the wall on the left hand side made out of ?

Hi Jo,
The wall is made of the following:
We installed steel posts with timber framing in between and we clad the frame with a layer of cement board and then a second layer to create the appearance of recessed joints and we designed a random pattern for visual interest. We really wanted a rusticated metal finish and we were able to achieve this by painting the cement board with a rust effect paint available here in Australia. It is applied in three applications including and undercoat, a black paint with iron fibres and finally and acid based product that literally rusts the fibres in the paint right before your eyes. I actually applied the finish myself and as soon as the last coat of acid was applied a major thunderstorm arrived and drenched the wall with rain which added to the visual appeal of the wall and further accelerated the rusting process. This can also be achieved by using a garden hose at the end of the process. It takes several days to apply all the stages
Hope this helps.
If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Regards,
Dominic Bagnato

Hi
The awning is made of an Australian hardwood timber and is a series of battens held together with aluminium sections and stainless steel wire secured to the back wall. It is stained a chocolate colour., The timber above is also a cedar timber batten stained chocolate.

Hi,
It really is a great colour. I have consistently used it on different projects and will continue to do so.
As a matter of interest are you outside Australia and if so how did you source the colour?

Hi,
Thanks for the compliment. It was my wifes idea to place the succulents in the urn.
However I will have to tell you that we had to replace the 1st urn we had because the succulents grew and cracked the bowl. Sofar with the 2nd all seems well.

A very nice job.

Merbau is a very durable and termite-resistant timber. Has an orangish-brown color when freshly cut, which ages to a darker reddish-brown. Color between boards can be highly variable. There are also small yellow mineral deposits found throughout the wood, making it easier to separate from other lookalikes. (These yellow deposits are water-soluble and can cause staining.)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The living room opens out to the Bagnatos' 22-foot-wide patio. With the children in mind, they split up the space with a paved area for riding bikes and a small grassy spot for playing. They built 9-foot-high fences on either side of the patio for more privacy. "We didn't want the fences to be all the same, so we created themes," says Dominic. The fence on the right is lined with a horizontal pattern of Merbau wood from Southeast Asia.
