Landscape & Garden Design
Paving Advice...or getting edgy!
If you are doing a huge area and will be doing a bit at a time I would buy a 9 inch grinder for about $100 and a diamond tip saw blade for…
I won't claim this as an original idea but it's something I saw at a cemetery...plaques with inscriptions from school friends or perhaps incorporate something (sculpture…
Soil for Vegie Garden
I would imagine there is, there are plenty of soil places around. I might pop into one when my garden bed is finished being built.

Pre turf question
I better add to this that using "powerfeed" as a clay breaker isn't a one of application and neither is gypsum. Use it at least every month for best results.

My synthetic turf quote...
Thanks, stormy. I saw the pics and they look awesome!
I will update once something happens. But don't hold your breath as that could take awhile. Hehe
As FuMan said your foundation may have swelled causing heaving of the slab and cracking of your brickwork...photos may help.
Your builder should have included a…

the only hassle in WA with using seed is the bloody ants! coastal brown ants are such a menace since local councils stopped spraying for them. They…
Bagged paver sand
Thanks Fu. Unfortunately, the builder hasn't leaven any sand behind. Will go around shopping this weekend!
Our first plants!!!
No , it isn't misleading. Many botanical names include Jasminoides or jasminum in the name in reference to either flowering heavily or fragrant flowers. It is a Latin thing.
Horticulture was very male dominated in WA and still is. Now days it is mostly female classes at TAFEs.
The senior knowledge in WA is therefore mostly males. Many…
As someone pointed out to me once, if it's fast growing when you plant it, it will continue to be fast growing even when established! Keep that in mind if you're averse…

Do ants eat vegie plants
Also, to keep the ants away, you know the coffee grindings from an espresso machine? Throw them around the plant (used of course hehehe get…

We have granetic sand down at the moment in a section at the side of our house, we had hoped that it would compact down enough and also put pavers down,…
Raised garden bed against fence
I wish I could have done Adrian's way We are coastal though and I didn't want any pressure on the fence. If it rusts in years to come, the soil may push it over. I think…
