How to Create the Perfect Garden Bed

Well-planted and tidy garden beds add interest and street appeal to any home. 

The good news, is you can easily have a go at doing it yourself!

Here are some features to consider: 

  1. Choose a theme: formal vs. casual
  2. Draw a plan. 
  3. Remove any existing grass or plants. Extra tip: Don't throw out anything you could re-use! This will save you money and time.
  4. Prepare your soil. If the plants don't have a healthy environment, it doesn't matter what you do - they won't grow! 
  5. Research your plants. Your choice will depend on your climate and size. For a low maintenance but high-impact look, stick to one variety.
  6. Don't forget to weed and water your garden bed!

What is the name of the banksia ground cover you used in Series 9 episode 11 , the Maitland town house with the small court yard. I live in Lake Macquarie , not far from Maitland and thought this plant may work in our yard.
