Deb's new sustainable garden at Brierfield

Seen from below, Deb's new house is located in a bush fire 'flame' categorised area and thus requires  flame shutters and concrete decks. Her vegetable garden is located on top of the hill. Natives are planted below the house.




Deb (in the pink hat) and her partner have invested in terrace walls below the house.



A constructed pond serves for Deb's treasured fish and also as a mandatory emergency fire fighting resource.




Stock water troughs have been adapted with planted Lomandra grass to filter sewerage overflow.



The vegetable beds are located at the top of the hill.




An Acerola cherry has fruited well under its netting.



Comfrey flourishes with edible marigold flowers in the foreground.






A Zucchini is still producing.

 

A yellow Eggplant loves its sunny position.
