Come for a walk around the garden with me. Over the next couple of weeks I want to take stock of what’s been happening around the various areas of the garden and make a few plans. To keep me on track I’m counting backwards to one. Otherwise I may be tempted to stop halfway. I've placed an aerial view of the garden (from a website called nearmap.com) on the sidebar so you can see how each section of the garden fits together.
The other tree, near the driveway is a eucalypt, already there when we bought the block of land. These trees are notorious for losing large branches or toppling over during storms, but it's far enough away from the house not to be a concern. Not a tree I particularly like but it’s been there a lot longer than we have.
Our driveway forms a Y shape, splitting to go to the garage attached to the house and to John’s shed.
I think this area is much too bare. I would like to have a garden bed defining the front and side boundaries of the yard – not totally enclosed but about 8-10m either way on the corner. I’m picturing it wider at the corner and narrower at each end – sort of boomerang shaped. (Knowing my long-suffering husband will read this and panic – don’t worry darling, a job for after I retire)
