It’s small, and the garden is next to non-existent. It’s a pity really, as we don’t want to spend a lot of money on it, seeing as purchasing a block to build on is more of a monetary priority.
We’ve given in a bit and planted a few natives bought from the Williamstown landcare group last year. They were so cheap – must’ve been $2 or so for each little plantling. What an excellent idea too, getting people to plant local natives in their gardens.
Most of what we have in the garden is in pots, as the current owners appreciated a more low-maintenance backyard, covering all with plastic and then bark chips. I can’t complain too much though, as a non-gardener for all but last week, I haven’t had to tend to or weed anything!
