We live on 688sqm in Fenton Park, and we have about 40sqm garden beds, most of them raised beds edged with macrocarpa. The wood's been going strong for 5-6 years now and only showing slight decay. It's necessary where we are due to geothermal soils being a bit shallow. We also have 5 chooks.
We get a lot of food off our place, and we enjoy eating from the garden pretty much every day. It would be best to catch up in person rather than tapping at the computer keys late into the night! We have two boys aged 4 and 6 now, and the only time I get to do computer work is in the evenings... and I generally end up staying up too late! Give me a call some time on 348 1325. We are at 5 Clouston Cr.
