    Hi FNBroken and welcome,
    Congratulations on your new yard/home. Are you located within Canberra urban/suburban? How big is your block? Any ideas on your first step(s)?

    yup...in the burbs...block is just under 1,000sqm...

    first step was chickens and a chicken run - tick..

    next is greenhouse and wicking beds...

    We have so many plants (former owners were avid gardeners) and whilst pretty, it isnt very productive and is very high maintenance.

    so the plan is for it to mostly go...to be low maintenance or at least useful
