HI Andrew. Your trellis looks amazing. I am in Brisbane and have a house close to my boundary. I wanted to place a high trellis (about 4m high) and grow star jasmine to cover. Do you think that this would work? I currently have bamboo but it is so messy and has lost all its lower leaves so does not do a great job of screening any longer.

Your designs are amazing. Would the Malus loensis need very much sun as there will be very little sun on the side in question.
Are you sure you wouldn't like a home stay and garden consult in Spokane. My husband has spent time in Brisbane and loved it!

Thanks, it looks like you've got 3 shades?!? What about dark trim? Is this a good colour for fence paling?

Too funny, I am an American Ex-pat and always on this site. Saw this picture and first thought was, "That feels just like homes here in Melbourne". Sure enough it is!!! Just goes to show Melbourne has a "look"!

The wires and star jasmine are very popular. I try not to follow these trends however in this case it really suited the home.

Hello everyone,

I am a casting Producer at Leopard films. I thought I would reach out to let you know about the exciting new spin-off show that we have in production here at House Hunters International. The new show is called House Hunters International: Renovation and we are looking for expats who have recently bought fabulous properties and are about to embark on some imminent renovations. Ideally they should be outgoing and fun, aged under 45 and have bought a property within the last few years.

We are looking to film this Summer and for the renovation projects to be finished by end of November so perhaps a new kitchen, a small extension etc. We have some budget that would go towards finishing the project which makes it a little more interesting!

Please do get in touch if you have any contacts for people who may be interested in the show.

Best wishes,


Michelle James

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to California Gardener's August Checklist
Train vines. This is the season of rapid growth. Train vines on support structures while they're still manageable. Ask anyone who’s ever had a rambunctious vine get out of hand and you’ll appreciate the value of doing this task early and often.
Houzz added this to Espalier
Vines were trained in meticulous patterns in the formal gardens of 17th-century Europe.
