I thought I'd give you a little tour of my front yard. We are on 1.5 acres of land, most of it is bush. This is a huge triangular garden bed that borders the driveway and house. Once upon a time it seems to have been a maintained garden bed. It is not now. I have started removing the small undergrowth - with a plant to remove every bit of current foliage. There is also a small pocket of flat land on the back side of the house. These two parcels will be the parts of the garden I will 'manicure' and tend to as a vegetable, sensory, flower and fruit tree garden. I really like the idea of incorporating a garden this way - and it seems it benefits disease and pest problems too.
These steps will be bordered by more of a rock wall and herbs.
My little plot I planted out last week had evidence of something eating my seedlings. The box of fowlers jars I had by the front door ready for miniature gardens are doing a great job of mini-greenhouses for the minute instead!
I transplanted my Kale from a big pot at the old house - it seems to be flourishing in it's soil.
This is the end of the triangular bed, the steps are the top border, with it tapering down the driveway to this point. I have a little mandarin tree that has been transplanted for the last time - and Master J's daffodil garden we dug up is underplanted.
This bird bath has followed us through nine homes - a wedding present from Aunty E.
And this is the entrance to the path that borders the triangular bed. I love the bush, the tall trees surrounding us - but so looking forward to my spot of nurtured gardening!
How's your's this week? Do show!
