Native privacy screen and scented garden

Recommended Posts

Looking to start building my native scented garden as well as screening out some neighbours that have too much of a view into my yard.

I've got a lot of space and boundary to cover, so any of your top recommendations are welcome.

 

I figure this could work as a neat reference for others doing the same.

 

So far I have a couple varieties of callistemon, grevillea, and some lilly pilly.

A nice wattle, native to your location. Fast growing screen and scented flowers! Also being a Nitrogen fixer I like to plant leafy greens/spinach etc around the base as a ground cover :)

Wattle as a privacy is a good idea! Got some seeds as well, so I might buy tube stock until I get a chance to germinate.

Some other natives that are scented and make a good hedge are:

Backhousia myrtifolia - Lemon myrtle

Anetholea anisata - Aniseed myrtle

Prostanthera species - Mint bushes

Leptospermum liversidge - Citronella tea tree (repells mosquitos)

Leptospermum petersonii - Lemon scented tea tree

Did anyone mention Pittosporum undulatum and Hymenosporum flavum. Both are easy to grow and have very nice perfumes.

I've bought a bunch of the recommended items. I'll report back in a few years with before/after photos :)

Haha!
I'll get around to it as soon as I can.

I need to set up some irrigation for them as they settle in to my loamy clay soil
