We made a snap decision to landscape the entire front yard here in Tasmania. We did not like the proximity of some trees to the power lines and cut them down. Next thing we were looking at an empty space and thinking we should replace the trees.
Before we knew it, we, or should I say I came up with a grand plan. ‘Lets aim for something that looks wonderful on arrival but is productive for the future’. I like things to be tidy so that may be a challenge.
I even managed to create another driveway for the boat of the future and in the meantime another car space for our extra guests.
Sometimes a blank canvas is daunting, reworking someone else’s garden can be easier. Once we cleared the areas of weeds we discovered the original owner had created some interest by maintaining the beds with level marked by rocks. A good starting point.
We have selected Kalatmata Olive trees, some blueberry trees, a Kaffir Lime, a Bay tree and various culinary herbs. I have found a horseradish plant so will see how that performs here in the mix of sand and imported enriched soil from Tasmanian company First Soil.
More photos to come of the planted garden.
