An Autumn Garden Design project



More woes in the Vegetable garden - More changeable weather .. .Stinking hot for a few days then wet and humid for a few days .. .then it'll probably be cold and wet ........ Tomatoes now under attack from moulds and mildews ..... Not much more I can do to protect them .... 





This is the next large project..... Turning this into a garden of interest ... It only gets some morning sun ... So thinking of an interesting green garden with the only flowers being whites or subdued reds ....and lots of NZ  natives .



   



As you can see it's in a bit of a mess - the last part of the garden we haven't touched ...Previous owners had dog kennels here as well as the front of the garden ... 











I think it could look quite good with little effort... There is quite a slope to it though ... I would like to get a level area at the back for a small table and chairs ...It's a nice cool spot in the summer ......















Just need the time, Money and inclination :O)

I can see potential here in this place. The kind of challenge I enjoy. Looking forward to the future and photos of the finished garden.

Haven't been keeping up dated with your news. Are you working ?

I only have a few potted chillis and one tomato plant. Came back from Oz too late to do anything to the garden, though I cleared a bit a wondering if I should put some potatoes in.
