Neve, very impressive results and quite the improvement from the original photo! The new brick exterior looks great and the bright blue sky really brightened up the scene. Also that is quite the yard full of colorful flowers!

Two things to think about:

1. Perspective/Scale. I believe the path would be wider in the foreground and reduce in size as it leads to the house vs. staying the same size. The flowers, especially the yellow ones’, would be smaller in the background and increase in size as they approach the foreground. Right now the yellow flower buds in the background are quite large in scale...almost the same size as a window pane.

2. Sharpness. When adding several objects to a photo, make sure you maintain the same level of sharpness as the original photo for a more natural look. For instance, there is an area of purple/pink flowers that are in the middle of the yard that are quite sharp, but the surrounding flowers are much more blurred.

Interesting challenge.
Am I happy with my grass? Not so much.
Am I happy with my sidewalk? Not even close.
Am I happy with my bricks? Feh...
But, I actually have to do some work now (Can you imagine? They want me to work on stuff around here! As if!) So, this will have to suffice right now.
Oh, I did the grass by filling the area with dark green and then filling that with sandstone texture. Then I cloned areas to get rid of the inevitable pattern.
The grass growing up between the sidewalk cracks is modeled after my own sidewalks.

Had a quick play with it, but didn't have time to put much detail in

Thanks for your constructive criticisms TP. Much appreciated. Yes...the garden is a bit over the top I fiddled for quite some time trying to get that path looking right but was dissatisfied. I was frustrated when I realised that some of the windows were already painted blue, so that took way too long to fill those frames in with another colour and adjust to match the rest.

That area that's blurry in the flowers - I had done a bit of cloning there but certainly it needed much more along with sharpening as you say.

It was fun though.
