Bottom plantings have been completed leading out from the native violet ground covers and gingers we head into a complex under storey and canopy system. The main canopy consists of hog plum, madrono and light emitting vegetable humingbirds. Shade loving coffees are below with native lilly pilly and acerola cherries hedged on a sunny outskirt. Swale drains are capturing and slowing water heading into the dam and storing it within the soil. Soil was an issue with a rocky subsoil a clay type bedding sand was bought in and will help with water retention, a top soil was used to cover untill the seeded beds of cowpea, millet and buckwheat start to add biomass.
