Ours is a mixed garden which, at this point, includes a few edible trees, greens, vegetables, vines, flowers, cactus, orchids, bromeliads, natives and water plants. The garden was not designed with any specific style in mind. As our love of gardening and confidence grew, we experimented and added new stuff and chopped and changed. There[…]

Mount Colah – Michael’s Garden

The garden is a work in progress! Following the completion of a Permaculture Design Certificate in December 2018 I’ve been working towards the plan ever since.

Hornsby Heights – Natalie’s Garden

Our garden is a small, young suburban garden with many raised beds. We back onto bushland so have divided our space by a fence for natural, native plants and edible gardens.
