I've recently become involved in my local community garden - unfortunately a lot of the people who have plots there aren't willing to help maintain the communal spaces, and one area in particular needs a lot of love since it hasn't really been touched in a few years.
The first area I'm working on is the disability garden. The idea behind the space was that people with reduced mobility would be able to access it, however there currently is no one using it. There's been a history of groups taking it on then losing interest rather rapidly.
These are the raised beds - I've already started working on clearing them out, and at the moment have some dwarf snapdragons, pansies and geraniums in the ones I have cleared. My issue is I can only get out to water them once a week - twice if I'm lucky. They will do fine for now, but as soon as it starts to heat up given we are in a subtropical area they will suffer. Does anyone have any suggestions for sun and drought tolerant plants, preferably that flower?
These are the front beds of the disability garden. It needs a pretty heavy prune back and weed, but the larger plants in it are doing fine. My concern is finding a suitable groundcover to help prevent the weeds coming back. Would this be the right step to take here? I was thinking of something like yellow buttons plant and native violets. Suggestions would be most appreciated!
