Our Garden, a journey into landscaping.

Our Garden, a journey into landscaping.

When we moved into our house five years ago, one of the main features that we liked was the fact that it was on the side of a large hill bordering a national park and had a back yard that could be best described as natural bushland.

A  couple of years after arriving though we had a bit of a shock in the form of a huge rain storm that came through the region and turned our beautiful natural bushland back yard into a raging torrent through which the rain runoff for the entire hill was flowing at an alarming rate.

As it turned out, the house survived the deluge and we were left to think about how to stop it happening again. What resulted was a multiyear project to completely redevelop the back garden, to lay pipes to divert the runoff channel into the storm water drains and hopefully create some beautiful flower beds.

Carved Sandstone Bowl Table Centrepiece with Candle Holders

These low carved sandstone bowls that are surrounded by a ring of candles came about when I was building a sandstone retaining wall in my garden. Part of the building process was to use a sledge hammer to smash great big lumps of sandstone into bits that I could pick up and carry.
