Birthday present of weeding
Oct 30, 2008
Author: Deidre - Canterbury

A creek runs through their property and they had long discussed getting rid of all the weeds and replanting it but didn't know where to start.

So earlier in the year we researched what native plants would have grown there naturally, then potted lots up from our own garden.

On his birthday (over Labour weekend) we took the plants around and spent a whole day with 4 adults and 4 children clearing about 10 species of weeds and replanting.

It looks fab and while there is still ongoing work to do it is well on the way.
