For some this may not be a big project, but for me this is massive. I have never attempted a landscaping project of this scale before but I’ve started now and I will see this to the finish. These plants came with the house. I don’t know their name.
Apologies in advance to those who find them attractive, and I suppose they could be, if well maintained, but they are time intensive and as far as I’m concerned, time wasters. They always need trimming. It’s hard to prune back their dead leaves and honestly, one month later there are dead leaves again and the monthly cycle is never-ending.
This project is inspired by my succulent garden which, in this space, one of these great big plants used to reside.
Here’s a photo of the flowers that my most abundant succulent produces.
Firstly, I have to remove all these big, ugly plants and rocks. Soooooooooooo many rocks!!!
Lucky my neighbour lets me use his green bin too because I’m starting to get quite a pile of green waste.
I’ve named my blog The Unfurling Artist and have painted cups of teas with “unfurling” steam ladies because I love the look of curled fern frons and the unfurling process.
So, this is the plan… to create fern frons embedded into contrasting lines, all with succulents.
I will post updates on this landscaping project as it unfurls into reality. 🙂
