Freshly sown lawn seed, with the hope it grows into a lush lawn

The start of the junk removed from the moonscape (future orchard), hopefully I can reuse some of it

Moonscape before the weed pulling, rubbish collecting etc

Moonscape after 4-5 hrs over the weekend

Can you see any difference?

I think I'm going to start spraying the little stuff now, and try and pull out more of the marshmallow. No idea what I'm going to do with the rain water tank. Once the area is free of weeds and rubbish, I'll put out the call for free clean fill to fill up my moonscape...

First lot of natives go in today!

Starting construction for my veggie garden

Herb garden kindly planted for me :)

Little tubestock native, hiding between the blue flower bush and the white flower bush

Three large native shrubs planted here (hard to see), but hopefully will start to screen the fence

A prickly bush for the birds to hide in, away from predators, a couple of ground covers and another large shurb.

Tiny little ground cover next to the white tag.

I'm really looking forward to taking progress photos in a month or three to see the progress of my natives. Hopefully they all survive! Great day for planting with it raining whilst planting and still raining now...

Current landscaping...

...with many changes to come.

I am planning my landscaping around vegetable/herb gardens, fruit trees and lots of natives.Planning on recovering the gazebo with brush fencing or bamboo

Don't mind the washing, been a busy week.

Rubbish tip next door (my land and future fruit tree orchard)

A lot of work to be done before I can even start thinking about planting fruit trees. Getting rid of the rats will be a good start :(

I think this is going to need lots of weed spray as much as I don't like using it. I can't see any other way.

Front yard after removing lots of bushes and trees, future vegetable and herb gardens.
