With our vege patch humming along, and the renovation finished, the next project is the back yard.
We’re creating a native garden, with a “surburban bush” feel. In time, we should be able to look out through our back windows to a dense green mini-forest.
The back garden is somewhat shaded, with patches of sun throughout the day. So the “typical” Australian plants — which mostly require full sun — are out.
The photo above is the “before shot”, with the first batch of seedlings going in. This includes a pile of:
- various ferns
We’ll report back with a “after” photo at the end of summer, hopefully with a lot of green and not much brown!
