After visiting the QLD Garden Show recently I was reminded that a good garden has rooms that are separated by some form and that you can have different themes in your garden if you have the space.
Well we have the space and one area which is needing some love is the dam.
It was decided that we do a Japanese style pebble river (with frog ponds) winding through the trees towards an opening of lush flowers and a pond (think small scale Monet).
So we all starting shaping a river leading to the dam, which will have a water feature at the top and walking areas alongside bamboo and other plantings.
This is a long term project, but at least we have a vision now, something to work towards.
Home made concrete from the clay was carefully smoothed over the river bed by H.
Old bath toys were used to check the flow of the water down the river.
Plenty of fun.
