I have just designed my front garden about 6 months ago.

The theam was slightly ''out back'' and people say how nice it looks.
It takes time to plan, I started out with 3 sq sandstone blocks.
Much to the amusement of the people next door laughing at me.
Slowly, I would work out in my head what I wanted to plant, and where.I have little bushes all around, and 3 small trees.
Daisies, and more daises.
I have to say that it was one of my most favourite projects to do.
Now the neighbours next door have nothing to laugh at, they have told me it looks very nice. :) (The pic is a view of my garden).
Yes gardening has always been fascinating ever since I witnessed my grandmas one.

We have gardenias, a water fountain and some lawn. We occasionally have seasonal additions such as basil and parsley.
Yes, I have 6 beautiful rose bushes growing in the front of my home. Amazingly, it's the only thing I've been able to keep alive. I tend to them, cut them down once all the flowers have gone, and they grow back time after time! I've tried growing strawberries, tomatoes, lettuce and herbs, but haven't managed to keep any of it alive long enough to yield a crop. Have a new tomato plant in my kitchen waiting for me to re-pot. It has grown really tall and likes the sunlight in my kitchen, so I'm going to try keeping it there unless the pot gets in the way, as it would be really lovely to have my own tomatoes.
In our back garden we have a small 'lawn' (it is really a muddy patch with a few strands of grass peeping out), with a pet hutch and run, a garage, and shed. My mum works hard to make it pretty in the summer and spring by filling it with loads of hanging baskets.
Yes we have a lawn and some palm trees as well as succulents in pots.
Yes. As I live in a townhouse, body corporate maintain it for us. I have a tree that covers my bedroom window, and a massive Christmas tree like tree right outside my place.
I love to do gardening, but right now I have no garden .
No I don't have garden at my home
Not in the least, per se.

Planted all native trees around house boundaries'. Required no 'looking after'!

Just kept adding trees' as time moved on, to point where we had a luxurious 'wall' that gave us sun, wind, rain protection for our beautiful home.

We'd planted, in latter years, 'bird attracting' trees, & boy, did we get 'em! Lorikeets galore happily chirping away when those trees flowered!

It was a joyful sound to the kids' & us, & by the gathering of all different bird species' 'at our place', we knew we'd done the 'right thing' in what we'd planted over the many years'.
Yes - quite a large garden which is actually in different sections. We have a lawn at the back surrounded by palm trees, there is a front courtyard planted with various shrubs and trees, in front of that beyond our tall fence there are more palm trees and shrubs. Up our driveway, which is quite long, we have planted heaps of mock orange bushes which smell gorgeous when they flower. We also have a lot of "yesterday, today and tomorrow" shrubs scattered throughout the garden. Last week I planted a lot of seedlings in large pots in the front courtyard. Hopefully they will flower as I am kind of the "kiss of death" to plants. My late husband was the gardener in our family and had really "green fingers".
