Green Waste Collection

Green Waste Collection

A few times per year, city councils organise FREE residential bulk verge collections of green waste materials.

There is no better time to give your gardens a big clean up, for you to enjoy as to save on the disposal fees. 

Your trees might need to be pruned, reshaped, or simply have their crown lifted. Few hedges might benefit from being cut back. You might like as well to clear footpaths from overgrown shrubs, or even clear windows from overhanging branches and bushes who are blocking the view, or just getting ride of falls piled up for months.

Be assured that I will be more than happy to do the job for you.

Following is a guide on city council’s schedule, please check their website for specific dates:

The Town of Cambridge, Claremont and city of Nedlands conduct two collections each year, usually in Spring and Autumn.

The City of Stirling conducts a collection every nine months.

The City of Melville does it up to 3 times/year; in February, April and July.

The City of Subiaco has got a specific program run on weekly basis providing residents use required waste bags, but also accepts piles of green but it should be no larger than 3m L x 1.5m W x 1.5m H.

Woodwork: Console Table

Woodwork: Console Table

Passionate about trees, canopy, rain forests, and the amazing forest of the south-west of WA, I cannot help myself but to create from time to time some amazing pieces of furniture by upcycling unwanted timbers. Sometimes collected from building sites (skip bin), or by asking around…Always worth it.

This console table has been made to replace old, crappy, and unwanted Ikea stools, using Merbau (offered by a client) and Jarrah (given away by neighbours). Coated with a mix of beeswax and orange oil.

It fits perfectly in the dining room, behind the northern window for our orchids to enjoy light, warmth, and shelter.

Coastal Planting

Coastal Planting
Two days in an amazing location in the western suburbs, 300m away from the ocean to get that garden going. A few months ago, it was still covered with magnificent traveller’s palm (ravenala), but it was time for a change.
Instead, it has been decided to plant an array of coastal delights, 80 of them in total:
Summer scent (radermachera), Desert star (carissa), swamp lily (crinum pedunculatum), Lime wave (lomandra), Stephanotis floribunda (a climber), Emerald cascade (liriope), Dusty miller and a Frangipane. Some Dichondra’s seeds have been used in  between all of them as a ground covering.
Rob from total transformation set up the support line (marine grade) to get the Stephanotis climbing on the western wall. Great job mate.

Kerbside veggie patch; how to promote healthy lifestyle in your neighbourhood.

After an unsuccessful attempt to set up a veggie patch few months ago in our back garden, I was willing to make it right. Then I came across Raphael’s details and I said to myself; here we go, he is the one I need to call to set a proper veggie patch following permaculture principles.
After a quick chat, we finally met and put up a plan together.
I will:
-   Bring the water from the house to the kerb, passing the line underneath the footpath.
-  Build up the timber frame by up-cycling jarrah from the neighbourhood (I will use sienna sleepers for our next veggie patch).
-   Dig the hole, 30 cm deep.
Raph’ will:
-  Bring most of the elements to fill in: palm tree, horse manure, food scraps and lawn clippers. All of them being free as heading to waste.
- Bring and share all his experience to put everything together following permaculture principles.
I will:
-  Add my own compost, and some ground coffee offered kindly by our neighbour Jeremy, another gardener enthusiast, thanks buddy.
-   Set the dripping line and plant a variety of seeds in the following couple of weeks.
