We have been in our new house for 5 months now and I have managed to witness the garden in late summer to mid winter. This has given me a pretty good idea of how much sun and shadow different areas of the garden get.
Also, I now have a good idea about different wind directions and which parts of the garden are protected and which ones aren’t.
So, I decided the best way to proceed was do up a plan, listing each plant variety (as much as I could) and draw up their placements.
I will be redesigning the backyard so as to have a direction for my landscaping. We would love to have a combination of natives as well as fruit trees. We also want to add possible features such as a fire pit and pool and so I will need to see if I can design a space for them.
I will share my progress as it is made.
