Welcome to our blog!
We are a couple living in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Before buying our place we didn’t have much interest in gardening at all, but boy have things changed!
When we first moved into our property just over 3 years ago, most of our land was taken up by lawn with the exception of a few trees and shrubs. We have slowly added in 3 veggie gardens – 1 per year, as well as potted edible plants.
We have also slowly begun to reduce the area of lawn in our front yard and replaced it with native Australian plants to encourage more native wildlife into our garden.
As we have acquired new plants and learned to grow them ourselves, we have quickly seen the benefits whether it be tasty fresh food or seeing native fauna visiting our yard.
We have frequently viewed other people’s blogs and visited others’ gardens, which have inspired us to keep on going. We hope that by sharing our garden and the progress of our plans, we may also inspire others.
Thank you for joining us on this journey!
