Thought you might be interested in one isolation project I can tick ✔️ off my list. My verge was a mess of weeds and kikuyu rutted by the regular passage of the postie delivering the mail. I've got rid of this mess for which I relied on good neighbours to mow and put in a reinforced gravel path and then contoured the whole space. Planting is always the part that gives so much pleasure and satisfaction. Although it looks sparse I have planted dozens of ground hugging native plants, most can be growing in the Adelaide Hills, that will attract local insects, particularly butterflies. There are also a few different ground covering herbs including 3 varieties of thyme and also a Greek Oregano. In a week or so I will also plant tulips that are currently chilling in the crisper. Hopefully this will the first of many garden verges in my suburb.
