The Project

Haven’t posted much in the past month, this is why. Been thinking about the project for a couple of years and finally decided to give it a crack when the weather turned. This is my largest landscaping project to date, the front yard at my place in the Dandenong Ranges.  If it was a blank canvas then I’d be designing with natives but the maples are well established and magnificent. So far have laid out about 9 tonne of rock into 70 odd metres of wall around the garden bed pretty much dry except for a little mortar at the back for when my little boys run riot. 8 or 9 old Jarrah sleepers,  cleared out old plants, a few new plants interspaced and phase 1 of the project nearly complete. Phase 2 began this weekend….

    • I need to do something like this at my place. Have the materials been expensive? (I don’t need a figure).
