    So many of this type of report in the world press.
    I don't think I need post any more

    I feel the same way about lawn...
    LOVE the beer garden idea. Hey PP - that might be a good project for us to do when I'm down your way!

    Sustainable suburban landscaping

    I have posted this link to the buying and selling page, as I am selling the properties.

    However, I have landscaped my suburban block with an endemic bush garden on street side, sub-tripical rainforest between the two town houses, and extensive raised garden beds and fruit trees to the rear on the property.

    I have a area of lawn of about 25 square metres to just hang around in. We do love it here but do need more space....I have taken a helicam shot of the property to market it, however its interesting to note the difference to the rest of the suburban street.

    I think Eco means the beer garden thing - it sounds great to me. Or we could take the little bit of lawn we have left and sit and drink beer. That too has appeal.

    Tell us more about helicam Duncan

    Can you make beer from grass?
