Amazing results using the moon as a guide to planting vegetables.


Are your vegetable crops producing a low volume of produce? Is the produce small or turning to seed quickly? Or just not growing at all. It might be the time you are sowing or transplanting your precious little plants. Here are some tips to planting by the moon for large, healthier crops.

Leafy Plants – When sowing or transplanting plants like lettuce, spinach, cabbage and celery (leafy type vegetables), it is suggested by many that the new moon phase is the best time;

Root Crops – When it comes to our root crops like carrots, beets and parsnips the full moon phase provides ideal conditions;

Preparing Soil – As for the last quarter phase now is the best time to improving soil, making compost and digging or ploughing. This is also a great time for weeding.

While there is no scientific evidence that planting by the moon works, many people nonetheless believe that it does…Why not give it a go, you may just double your crop.

Nature-strip in lilydale topping

Nature-strip mini makeover. Our client was after a maintenance free option. Here we removed all of the lawn and replaced with lilydale topping. First we excavated the area. Then the crushed rock (road base). Now out comes the wacker plate to make sure the rock is nice and compact. We do this to reduce any movement.

Now the fun and rewarding part…laying the lilydale topping. We spread out the topping and run over with the wacker plate to achieve a compact and level outcome.

This is the difference between an average job and a great job. We aim for a great job every time.
