We've been "remodeling" our garden for the last couple of months - first we had the grass removed, well we couldn't really call it grass!
There were plenty of weeds in it, probably more weeds than grass...
I would love to have a native garden with low maintenance plants that don't require a lot of water or time to care for them!
I love succulents and have been collecting them and propagating some of them too, so that I have enough for our garden project...but apart from that my husband and I are a bit of garden novices.
Looking for some inspiration, this past Sunday we visited Zanthorrea Nursery
in Maida Vale in the Perth Hills.
Oh what a beautiful place! Everything was so neat, the plants all separated into different zones - ground covers, Kangaroo Paws, Grevilleas, Succulents, Herbs...
Quite enchanting! They even had a kid's playground, garden art...
So many ideas whirling around, now I have to put pen to paper and draw some designs so that we can decide what to buy and where to plant!
|Plant your flower seeds now for Spring|
|How about this wooden frog?|
|I like this metal ostrich too...|
|The kids playground in the middle of all the greenery|
|Grevillea - Pink Pokers - Can you see the bees?|
|Banksia Spinulosa "Birthday Candles"|
|Flowers from a Gum tree - another bee inside one of the flowers...|
|How about this metal Xanthorrhoea or Grass tree (natural to Australia)|
|Dinosaur and egg|
|Can you spot the bee?|
Sorry I didn't write down names of all the plants....I'll go back for sure when we're ready to start planting.
In an area reserved for staff I saw this cute sign.
Can't wait to see our garden finished, but unfortunately these things take time and a lot of work and money. Maybe by Spring it will be all done hopefully!
