I am totally new to gardening, and have a blank canvas to work with. Daunting and exciting all at the same time. I love lots of color and really enjoy digging and getting my hands dirty and see my ideas come together.

My garden, well let's just say, its a work in progress. We moved into our home 3 years ago. It is a new house on a 1 acre sloped site. The highest part is at the back of the house. In August we had some digging done to level off the back and to create a big lawn area. Now thats done and the lawn has taken off quite well. My plans for the summer is to create a dry bed stream on the slope and to plant it up. I dont know what kind of plants to use yet but im making a list of plants i see that i like as i go different places.

The soil is very sandy so its making it a little more difficult for me. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
