I'm a little tired this morning as I was out late last night swinging the mattock into all the backyard clay. I was out in the dark because I needed to get gypsum into the clay to help break it down before the rich topsoil goes on today.
As I was fumbling around in the dark I promised myself I would add some garden lighting when we do all the new planting. LED lights are now very affordable and I'd love to use lights to dramatically feature some of our plants and trees.
What would you most like to add to your garden? Perhaps some lighting, a self-watering system, a raised garden bed, or an exotic new plant?
Let us know in the discussion below.
I'm thinking about a firepit to help enjoy the backyard all year round. See https://www.workshop.com.au/t5/Gallery/Winter-project-firepit-for-the-backyard/cns-p/2768
Installing a watering system before next summer would be good. It's a really tedious job standing around with the hose, made even worse when you do it at dusk and get attacked by mozzies.
I would love an outdoor cinema in my backyard.
It would be perfect for summer and also in winter snuggling up with blankets around a fire to watch movie would be great!
Probably need a bigger backyard though...
I'm pretty keen for some avocado trees. I love them, my kids love them and they cost the earth. Unfortunately it'll take years for them to fruit to the level we'll need but we're not going anywhere so I guess I should just get them in the ground.
I would love to have a Moon Gate in my garden!!!
Come to think of it.. I think I just might add that idea to the ever growing list of 'To Do's'..
Priorities first though.. Finish cleaning the mud off 400 odd house bricks (I'm big on Reuse-Recyle) and get my African Keyhole Garden built and growing some tucker...
As for lighting, Solar leds are BRILLIANT!! They come in some pretty awsome designs now or even make your own..
Deams are amazing, they keep the world moving & life, as we know it, going.. Keep dreaming, and make the dreams that big they scare you!!
