Your yard was one of the inspirations to continue working my building site garden rather than just get it dug out and replaced with real soil.

Well done, Dave. Shows what organic matter with a little (? lot) of elbow grease achieves.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
