STORY

Once a typical Forestville block with hedges, lawns, sandstone outcrops, poor clay soils, and a sixties brick veneer cottage – this westerly aspect garden is now a foodscaped oasis hosting chooks, rabbits, bees, blue tongue lizards to name but a few. It is where I test concepts, plant combinations, spacings and grow as much food as I can. The garden has been through several iterations as I hone my design and horticulture skills with the landscaping coming to completion this summer (if my back holds out!)
One of the first things I did when we moved in was to rip up the front lawn and put veggie beds right up to the footpath. Very few people go past without stopping for a look or a chat and it has been – hands down – the best way to meet the neighbourhood.
