i actually love gardening but i dont have the time or money to do it usually. Plus we live in a rental so are limited in what i can do. But that didnt stop me re designing the front garden.
I tried to use drought tollerant natives as its a rental i needed to keep maintenance low. In order to do this i would have to rip out the horrid spikey bushes that are already there. I would make a path to the tap (on the right) using wood because as it is i have to walk over the tanbark through the spikey bushes. I would use large rocks as features like in Japanese design and a raised planted pot to add height.
There is a path up the middle that kind of leads up the wall to the letterbox. At the moment its brick and not wide enough. I would make it crazy stone (not clean cut) but close together and add a stone step as the wall is slightly too high to step up comfortably. The large bush next to it has to stay as its a privacy screen so the planting around it needs to match but i havent got that far yet. I went for purples and grasses which will stay colorful year round rather than turning to twig bushes like the ones there now.
