The one area of my new home that seems to have fallen to the bottom of my priority list is the garden. The house came with landscaping as part of the building package, but it is extremely simple landscaping, and not really an ideal garden – at least by my standards. There are a few problems with the garden area that I’ll need to overcome – space, the burning hot Australian sun, and sandy soil. I’ve been browsing Pinterest for some small garden inspiration, and have come across some inspiring images that I thought I would share with you.
