With summer in the air, now is the perfect time to utilise the space in your backyard and get those flowers and veggies growing! What better way to assist your babies sprouting than with the help of a rainwater tank?
Barely able to swing a cat in your backyard? If you only have a small courtyard or just enough room for your hills hoist, don’t stress! Read on to find out how to optimise the space you do have, however small, to make the most of your yard while the warm weather lasts.
Raised garden beds
If your yard is dominated by concrete slabs, raised garden beds are a great way to grow plants and bring a little life to your home. You can buy one or try your hand at the DIY versions. Raised garden beds are easy to assemble if you know your way around a hammer and can get your hands on some scrap slabs of wood. Give this tutorial a go!
There are several cheerful climbers that can be planted on trellis’. Some popular choices for the Queensland climate include bougainvilleas, the golden trumpet vine and madagascar jasmine. These vines produce gorgeous flowers sure to inject some colour into your backyard!
Get your herb on
Christmas is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than cooking with your own fresh herbs and spices? Herbs are easy to grow in pot plants, garden beds, or in hanging planters. Herbs such as basil, mint, coriander, lemongrass and tarragon thrive in the Australian summer with the warmer climate and plenty of hydration. Why not try your hand at creating a hanging planter, and save space on the ground for the kids to splash in a play pool or kick a ball.
