The aim was to convert the unsightly bank into a rockery garden. Garden beds would be built into the existing bank using bush rock and filled with garden soil. The existing soil consisted mainly of clay and rock and was extremely hard packed which made it extremely difficult to grow any plants.
We decided to plant native plants and we were interested in encouraging native birds back into the garden.
The first step was installing a drainage line in order to ensure the water was not trapped in the soil and garden beds.
