our today garden
I spent a good chunk of this sunny easter weekend outside, trying to clean up our garden (it always seems more like cleaning than gardening, as I sweep sand, dirt and possum poo off concrete), and doing a bit of thinking.
I've mentioned my dreams of our "one day" garden before, but, the truth is, that day is a way off, and in the meantime I am going to focus on improving what we've got.
I need some help though - I have some plans and ideas (less concrete, new steps, more garden!), and have started making some concept drawings, but I know we can't do it alone, and I'm still experiencing "tradie phobia" (after a bathroom renovation that still haunts us, and causes problems, years later).
Can you give me any advice on finding someone we can rely on, someone who won't laugh at our attempts to minimise costs / waste / environmental impact, and someone who will let me do the bits I can do on my own? Better still, do you know anyone who fits that description and works in SE Melbourne?
One day, one day...
