Not yet

It is kind of developing on its own ;)

With the heavy frosts we have been having I havent been game enough to plant anything :o

Ive also thrown most of my energy into a few other projects the last couple of weeks Aquaponics, chook house, motor bike, cuckoo clock.

Must draw something up. I do have a list of about 10 things to implement (thanks Jayup ;)

I did get as far as writing it all down on a piece of paper :scratch

Thanks B...now.....How to draw a plan. At this time if year find a nice sunny :sunny spot to put a chair in, where you can get a full view of your yard. A nice warm cup of something or a glass of in the afternoon ~ and your fav music and let the imagination roll or the mind wander. Be warned whatever plan you come up with now won't be what you end up with. ;) Sometimes it just needs to happen 1 piece at a time until it all falls into place. Gardens are always evolving, I'm up to about my 5th front garden design in 15 years, it keeps the neighbors interested too :thumbright

nice warm sunny spot aitnt going to happen today!!

I have a plan well 2 options for my front yard and one will certainly get the neighbours wondering about my sanity the other is a little more conventional ;) (actually they wonder about my sanity anyway the amount of time they see my legs sticking out from under a Kombi :lol:

Someone will just have to beat me brutally if I dont have a scale plan posted by late tonight :o

Iwas in my place in canberra fro about 12yrs or so and the neighbours there Im sure would shake their heads as they saw my yet again ripping al the front yard out and start again - I realy didnt have a clue so it just never quiet worked out.

Bernie Make sure your scale plans show a pair of legs hanging out from under
the back of the kombi! :razzb

I agree with Em do what pleases you in the garden and suits your family bugger the neighbours ( gives them something to talk about anyway)

Let it never never be said to do it to keep the neighbours happy. :shock:

Here in the burbs where several of the neighbors places directly face mine and unfortunately in our street we're the last house left. Everyone else is in units or townhouses, with minimal gardens, which I'm sure is ok for them. I find it funny because I often see their curtains or blinds move when I stand up and face their way. Like I said it keeps them interested. I've even offered for them to come and help if they have nothing better to do.
No one's jumped at the opportunity yet. :scratch

YEAH Im Back. It appears I have been stuck in a paralle universe for the last 24hrs posting on a forum that doesnt exits :hmm

Anyway I got my chook house up and all fenced in.

Got out and bought a new load of gravel for the aquaponics just in the process of washing it out

Then I sat up till some stupid hour this morning and did this

BTW all the funny lines over the ground are "countour lines" doing stuff in 3D is REALY hard to get your head around I should have stuck to 2D.

sorry the Kombis arnt part of the garden (Yet) so they didnt get included. Just imagine them lined up along the fence on the left ( yes I did have my legs sticking out from one this morning and ened up with grease all over my parker) :oops:

Now Im ready for a nap (mmm... need a sleepy Smiley ;)
