Colinas


A View of Our Backyard, April 2015
During 2011, we purchased a very old home, completely uninhabitable. It suited our purposes because we decided to knock it down and rebuild. Not only were we fortunate enough to have a new home, but we also had a 'blank canvas' for a new Asian-influenced garden.

Our block is a normal Sydney suburban block of 553 square metres. However, we decided that we did not want lawns, that most of the remaining areas of the block would be set aside for gardens.

Our theme is Malaysia in particular, Asia in general, with some native Australian plants to support the local wildlife. In this young garden there is always a curiosity, always something new...
