Showing your Australian pride and heritage doesnt stop at supporting Australian made and grown products because even in your own homes and gardens, you can go Australian. Knox Weekly featured a couple, who shares their joy of gardening around, by welcoming people to explore the garden theyve spent years creating and beautifying in their Boronia home. They will showcase the fruits of their labour as they participate in Open Gardens Australia. Rob and Val Henry have plants native to Australia because they want to change the perception that native plants are wild, bushy and unattractive.

Mr. Henry encourages would-be gardeners not to be disheartened if their first gardening effort will not be a success, because garden maintenance takes time and work. For those who enjoy beautiful gardens but dont have the time to work on it, you can hire landscaping services. If youre looking for someone to do landscape design in Sydney, Manna Landscapes can offer a complete innovative and creative landscaping service, including garden design, construction and maintenance.
