I have been working on a few new projects both in my local suburb of Ivanhoe and further-a-field.

 This terraced 'wicking bed' system is surrounded by a possum proof structure and is attached to a fox proof chicken coup.

'Wicking beds' are like giant self watering pots which have a range of benefits, particularly in our water poor climate.

Also, the paving in the back garden of the same house in Ivanhoe is made up of recycled concrete, broken up at another clients place and relaid here as 'crazy paving'. 

Further more the soil is being improved utilising a rainwater harvesting and infiltration system, sheet mulching, worm castings, and compost.

With some help, I have been restoring and relaying some of the rock work at St.Michael's Church (cnr Collins St and Russell St).

Furthermore I will be adding plants and maintaining the garden for the next foreseeable future. 


Over the bridge in Newport I implemented another VEG design, with raised beds, chook house, and chook run/orchard. 

 The berries in the front will benefit from a laundry-to-landscape greywater system.
