Rain means planting! …and we have had some rain It’s time to plant.
With the new(and last) wall finished we have to protect the the new level from rain and weather.
Un-planted or supported bank here disappear very quickly in the rain.
The final sections of our major wall construction are due for completion… and then that will be the end!
Just two sections left to complete….
We have a big White Cedar(Melia azedarach) on the Plot level and it has been a PITA since we got here. Beautiful tree, but it does not work where it is.
So it’s for the chop!
One of the main plants we use in erosion control and creek management is Lomandras – the Australian mat rush. Propagating these form our own seed is our next project.
It’s been some time now since we made the Callistemon path to the south of the driveway and it was badly in need of some maintenance.
As you may know our place is extensively planted with Oleander trees. A left over from previous owners.
Part of our long-term plan is to remove all of the Oleanders over time.
The damage to Lamington National Park Rd caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is still being repaired. It has been 12 months since 400mm+ rain fell here in ‘Upper’ Cainbable.
It is now our turn to get ‘repaired’
Thanks to our friendly Rangers at Lamington National Park we have access to a hug amount of aged Forest Mulch. This is one of the major resources that we need for much of the work we do.
This has allowed us to continue extending the South Park path.
