So, we've lived here nearly a year now, and the back garden is still just brick and mulch. And a tree that we can't decide if we like, and keep threatening to cut down if we could be bothered.
This is what it looked like when we moved in:
Those are rosemary bushes.
Neither of us particularly likes rosemary.
And the tree was WILD.
And this is what it looks like now:
Yes, we used these 11 months well!
The rosemary is gone, and the tree had a couple of hair cuts.
And this is what its going to look like.
A couple of grevilleas, lots of kangaroo paws, some grasses, some low growing natives, a couple of funky Acacia Limelights that I saw ages ago and fell in love with, and a little pond.
Maybe even a fish!
All native, hopefully bird/insect/frog attracting and waterwise.
