Meet the gardeners and their garden
In the 10 years since they moved here, Marg and Peter have managed to squeeze a lot of creativity and greenery into their 600 sq metres block. From their sunny north-facing back deck, you could almost imagine that you were stranded on a tropical island as you gaze across the statue of the sailing lady and through the palm fronds to their productive garden. The densely planted back garden is a happy marriage between vegetables, rose bushes (much loved by Marg), fruit trees and succulents.
Come to see, learn and be inspired!
Raised vegetable beds and climbing frames allow netting to protect against ringtail possums, while the garden has now been secured with a rabbit-proof fence
Growing dwarf varieties of some vegetables in pots allows Marg and Peter to enjoy small quantities of a wide variety of foods
