I'm out doing a spot of gardening and wondering what to plant in this ugly patch of soil next to the car port which is part grass part concrete drive. I'm in southern NSW. The soil did have plants growing in it before but they were ugly so I took them out.
Oh the pic went sideways - sorry 'bout that!

check out his website. I find it extremely helpful when picking plants. Just choose your climate zone and away you go.
I would treat the soil first though. Get some chook poo, compost and mulch and enrich the soil before planting.
Herbs are great. You can pretty much plant any of them now. Basil, parsley, coriander and thyme will thrive now. Oregaro will establish but start to die off in the hot weather, as will mint and sage.
Herb gardens are the best ever...easy to look after, useable and the more you pick the more they grow!!!

Oh thanks for that!
I have just finished making a big veggie herb and fruit garden!
Im thinking of planting something here that looks attractive yet is low-ish maintenance. I'll look at the website

If you wanted something bushy but easy to maintain you could plant an Orange Jessamine (Murraya), they are a hedging plant but with minimal pruning have a nice bushy shape and seasonal white flowers. if you want something a bit more 'sculpted' you could plant an agave and succulents and put small stones as a 'mulch'
