garden path

Category: my garden | Posted: Tue Mar 23, 2010 5:40 am

This is a little path from the back verandah steps to the compost bin. The slope is treacherously slippery with the pebbly rocky rubble on top, so between the steps are spreading groundcover thymes, mints, with also a few compact dwarf clumping dianthus, armeria, some ajuga repatns and also some lippa and dryandera. Every bit I plant out will a) look better, b) stop the slope washing away, and c) be one less surface for the millions of weeds to colonise. It will look like a funky patchwork when they finish spreading. To the left of the path we will build vegie boxes on poles, a terraced arrangement to the ground so you can lean over the verandah to pick or reach from the ground. We have to keep the middle area, to the right of the path free, as it is the only access are for earthmoving or other machinery to the back yard.

Don't you just love envisioning the transformation? I can see it too. Sounds like a really cool plan. The terraced veggie boxes sound really interesting -- it will be fun to see the finished product.

That should look awesome, Brombear. Please post a photo when it starts to fill in.
