Helen's garden.

I went to visit some friends recently. Helen and her feller have a great block on a slope with a fairly decent view.

She has an orchard in the front of the block (which is at the back of the house, front in this case meaning north-facing).
The trees are going to be quite cosy when they get bigger, but apparently Jackie French reckons this works well.
The tall existing marri trees kind of restrict what can be done out there, but their shade is well above the garden, so in many ways they are the perfect canopy.

In the street facing side of the garden is mixed vegetable areas and low native plants. It's a complete fairyland of a garden for their intelligent little daughter. She's a lucky little one with very smart parents.
