Garden Tour Countdown - 13. Our Utility Area
This is a utility area. Our clothes line is here. There’s an old wooden table that gets a lot of use as an outdoor workbench. It’s also the main thoroughfare from the house to the shed, the chook pen and much of the garden.
In wet weather we appreciate having the pavers underfoot and in Winter it’s a warm sunny spot to sit and read. (You will notice in most areas of our garden there is a seat of some sort.)
Behind this area is a grove of majestic palms under-planted with ornamental gingers and various tropical plants. (I'll look at that area in a later post)
Plans for the future
If I can successfully get rid of the grass between the pavers I think I might create a succulent area or plant more herbs (in pots) in the corner near the vege garden to soften the look and add a bit of interest.
The other project planned for this year is to build a garden shed between the tank and the chook pen. – Once that’s in place, this really will be the workroom of the garden. The cement slab for the shed is being poured today.
