    I forgot about ornamental grasses too. I have the big purple one and the dogs love it. Bounding through it - and Abe likes to do big running bellyflops into it. It's still alive and doing well - good call Bernie.

    I live in tick country so ornamental grasses or not I have to be on the ball in tick season, the grasses I've planted have made no difference to us. I'm very envious of those of you who have no such problem with ticks, horrible little suckers...

    Great ideas Riley and thanks for the links...i'll have a good read up of them. I actually have one of those 'Lotsa lemons' and believe me it is right now living up to its name...i just plucked about 10 and need to give some away to the neighbours. I put mine in the ground so its got a bit bigger than usual but a pot would be better methinks. I've had it about a year and a half now. I need to try and block of the view through my back fence because team goof want to eat the GSD who belongs to the cop behind us... (and vice versa!) But leaving a walkway/zoomy track is a good ideas too.

    Yukkas, varigated agave's (balinese??) and lilly pillys have sprung to mind today for a bit of colour too.

    I don't know what does well up in Bundaberg, but my yard is full of natives - lilly pillys, grevilleas, different types of calistamens, Ivory Curl trees. Lots of colour, both in foliage and flower at different times of year, and a bonus is it brings the birds in. I love my lilly pillys - I have 4 differnt types and the colours are gorgeous.

    'Sean' - don't waste your money buying yuccas - they grow from cuttings - really well and quickly.

    So go forth and beg from your neighbours and friends - or I can send some cuttings to you.

    Garage sales and Boot sales are really good places for buying reasonably cheap plants.

    Thanks Riley. I've got a few cuttings potted up and ready to go and my 7 big buggers out the front need a cut back so i'm good for now but thanks for the offer. I got a few a while back for $5 each at the markets. I just dont want to cut all mine back at the same time ...it might look a bit bare so 'i'll do them one by one as each one sprouts again.

    This weekend i might head to the markets again and see if i can score some diffrent plants for cheap. I've always tried to grow plants on the cheap.

    Except for that Lots a lemons.....it was scary how much that sucker cost...from memory about $25 or $30 !!!!!

    We are getting a heap of lemons from our lemon tree too! I've made about 5 lemon meringue pies in the last week (and put on about 5kg)!

    Our gardens were completely fine until we got Molly... now we've just given up.

    Is/was that Liriope?
    We used to have a nice border of that also.
    Snoopy thought it was an excellent bed to chew his bones on.
