No. 28 Annandale Cres, Glen Waverley is on the market.

Big dreams can turn the smallest spaces into abundant gardens.

That was the idea behind Thana and Sude’s decision to turn their almost entirely paved outdoor entertaining area at 28 Annandale Cres, Glen Waverley into a thriving edible garden.

Fed up with inferior groceries, schoolteacher Thana transformed the space with planter boxes and pots full of fruit and vegetables.

Much of the garden was cleaned up for the property’s sale.

“I was quite concerned with all these imports coming in and I wanted to know where the food comes from – and it’s also a de-stress activity,” Thana said.

“And when the kids were growing up it was an activity for them – we got them to grow their own vegetables.”

Okra, eggplants, zucchinis, tomatoes, lemons and herbs have all provided for the family and friends from the mini garden.

“Because I don’t have much space, I grow them vertically – I have strings tied to the plant and they train themselves to grow vertically,” Thana said.
“It doesn’t take too much time really,” she said of maintaining the garden, which she waters just once a week in warmer weather.

You wouldn’t think a paved space would be so fruitful.

When life gives you lemons.

G&Ts for months.

But with plans now to find a “smaller house, bigger garden”, Thana and Sude have put their four-bedroom Glen Waverley property on the market for $1.1-$1.2 million.

It goes under the hammer on November 23.

Biggin & Scott agent Julie Karl said the garden showed how you could maximise space in a backyard tailored towards entertaining.

“All she does is come home and pluck and eat – I go straight to Coles or Woolies and then come home, it’s such a different life,” she laughed.

“It freshens up the home and it’s like they’re living in the countryside with all these plants absorbing the carbon dioxide.”

Fried zucchini flower anyone?

Planter boxes make for an easily maintained edible garden.
