It's described as top dressing? Standard turf underlay is fine. Your better off with a sand/loan mix as organic mixes will compress and collapse leaving your levels lower than expected. Your friend here is water and that's it for at least 12 months and thereafter powerfeed and molasses for building ...

I can't understand why you would cover a timber sleeper retaining wall with cement sheet. If you've ever seen these walls after 12 months you would notice significant movement (twisting and distorting). Due to weather and the obvious water/soil pressure effects these would move, crack and wreck any ...

Can I suggest you post some pictures of the yard? It's also a good idea to seek inspiration from other gardens in your area. Plants, trees and shrubs that do well in your climate/area remove any questionable species that would likely lead to disappointing results. Next you need to consider the light...

How do you keep the weeds, leaves and other mess out of your gravel/river stone path? Weed mat/plastic?

Can you please post a pic of the brick making process? I'd love to see where and how you press and cut your fresh bricks. Mixer, mold, press, etc. Also do you set/lay with clay and cement or just the same clay you use for the bricks. Well done on your efforts so far. I can really see your skills and...

Thx a lot for your quick response. A bit weird. Do people wash clothes with storm water? Yep. All new houses built in the last 8 years or so, along with at least one garden tap and all toilet cisterns.

Ahhh. Yep. That's couch. I've got it too, but in my case I don't mind as it's on my nature strip and it's not smothering the buffalo. Lovely and soft amongst the buffalo. Post back if you have luck with the herbicide

I believe that's Kikuyu. If the runners are quite pale and underground that's going to be confirmed. Um not much you can do other than chase the outbreaks and pull it out. Doable, just painful.

Definitely prune often. You need to keep in mind that as the hedge matures, the trunk and branches get woody and lack any decent leaf growth. Another reason to prune often is to increase the density of leaf.

Only issue is; "Syzygium paniculatum can be susceptible to psyllids, the insects that can cause leaf pimpling.." ->https://www.gardeningwithangus.com.au/syzygium-paniculatum-lilly-pilly/ I still highly recommend resilience.

Highly recommend the Syzygium Resilience - lilly pilly. I have both this and the Aussie Southern variety and I have to say the resilience colour is the best of the two, and no psyllid issues compared to my Aussie Southern variety. By the look of the OP pics, these look like my Aussie Southern variet...

if you have a dog, don't plant brunfelsia as their seed pods are poisonous. Does it get full sun, IE. Was the pic taken in the morning? My tips are; Casade Lilly Pilly Resilience Lilly pilly Plant in a row. Trim it as much or as little as you want. I'd lean toward cascade as their foliage is spectac...

Guys. The rules regarding engineering also apply at any height wall (yes, even 30cm) within 1 metre of a boundary.
