A wonderful idea to enliven any fence, this simple project uses Star Jasmine and cable to train the plant to cover the area. Many members have been inspired to replicate the project, sharing photos of their own fences.
This comprehensive backyard makeover included landscaping, decking, raised garden beds, screening, planting, and new turf. There's also a wonderful play area for the kids, with a cubby, sandpit and chalkboard.
Narrow areas down the side of a house can be tricky to work with, but this combination of decking and garden beds came up a treat. It’s a practical solution for easy access as well as creating a space for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors.
