A New Agave Garden

As I’ve been getting more experienced with growing plants – I’ve been a little haphazard. I’ve been focusing more on keeping things alive and growing than how they are arranged or landscaped.

I finally bit the bullet – and decided to try my hand at a little bit of landscaping.

Out the front of our house is a small garden next to the driveway which was just basically overgrown.

After pulling everything out I had to tidy up the bed a little, getting rid of roots and weeds to prepare it. I also had to do some running repairs on the fence.

It’s not much to look at yet… But wait.

I picked up some Agave Americana on Gumtree (for free) and started by placing a few things to see how they look.

Thankfully I had some little helpers when it came time to plant things, and then finish up with a layer of some red volcanic rock.

I’m really happy with the end result – it looks fantastic.

So what I have I got planted in there?

I’m excited to see how it all goes!
