One year on since started build and just finished getting the front garden into some kind of shape , trying to make it less of a mud wallow for the dog to roll in and dirty the balcony which he permits us to sit in the evenings.

It's the watering of it several times a day that is going to be the chore. Blazing hot up here and all the country around is shades of brown with parched and cracked earth everywhere. Luckily its only about 9 square meters of grass.

It looks very nice, and neat. Don't expend too much energy watering 9 sqm. Keep some time to yourself. Cheers mate.

Well, about two years since the completion and the garden is beginning to mature nicely. Already had small crops of bananas , mangoes , lemons and another year we should have coconuts. Mother in law next year is a pumpkin queen so plenty of them plus her guava tree has also born fruit. As for Papaya ..........no more please !

Great looking garden area, you must have a green thumb.

Envious of that hedge you have grown, buy the side on your house, in just a couple of years

That hedging is my favorite as it is like the cockroach of the plant world. Indestructible . Plant it and forget it. Does exactly what it says on the tin. Wife thinks it is a bit boring but I like it because it is green and always prospers. :)

It was planted in two rows when the house was finished , as you can see from the before and after pictures.

Thanks Bangyai

Trouble with my hedge attempts is, they grow sideways instead of upwards. :roll:

Buy any chance do you know what the name of the hedge plant was, either in English or Thai

Don't know the name of it but you see it absolutely everywhere. Used a lot on government buildings.

If you plant it pointing upwards it will grow in all directions. You just have to prune it to make it go upwards. As soon as it starts to bush out just cut it back so it presents a flat surface. I prune that hedge about once a month. when it starts to expand sideways I just keep cutting it back leaving up its only option.

I am having a bit of trouble with my Moke plants in front of the balcony. The leaves should be dark green but recently they have all turned pale despite watering and feeding. They are not dying ....just the wrong color.

The front lawn is also looking a bit sick too despite the rainy season. Could be the mango tree is sucking all the nutrients out of the ground so might try to feed it more.
