The Garden Gurus complete a stunning edible garden project in support of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation.

  • The raised garden beds were built using heat-treated pine and Whites Retain-iT posts, making them quick and easy to put together.
  • Soils Aint Soils supplied a great soil mix that contains all the nutrients and organics needed for the garden to thrive.
  • A layer of mulch was spread over the top of the garden to help look after the plants and keep them nice and healthy through summer.
  • Rema Stone provided some stunning pavers that were made in Italy and add a touch of class to the design.
  • Tass1trees contributed an assortment of fruit trees to create a border around the garden.
  • Most of these trees are deciduous, meaning they’ll allow sunlight and wind movement in through the winter and provide protection in the summer.
  • There’s a variety of plants that have been used in the design, a lot of which have been grown by Swan Valley Nursery.
  • The winner of this garden makeover, Karen Noble, works with children who have special needs.
  • These children will be able to grow their own fresh produce and learn how to use it in cooking.
  • Because the area is paved and the garden beds are raised and the area, children who use wheelchairs will be able to participate.
