North Willoughby – Chris’s Low Maintenance Garden

A first glance, Chris’s garden in Willoughby looks very conventional, with lawn, patio, trees and borders. But Chris is a bit lazy around the garden, so his interest in growing produce has led to the selection of food trees and shrubs which are productive whilst being low-effort.

Chris’s garden includes 4 citrus trees, a macadamia, honey bees and perennial or self-propagating plants including lima bean, pigeon pea, Malabar spinach, herbs, passion fruit, ginger, turmeric and more. There are a few veggies too – Chris likes peas, broad beans, tomatoes and has a wicking bed for leafy vegetables.
