If you are looking to spruce up your kerb appeal, your first course of action may be enhancing your landscape. Greenery on your property not only improves the visual interest of your property, but it can also help with minimising heat gain as compared to just having the entire exterior concreted. But planting trees from scratch can be a tedious endeavour. Nurturing the seeds to grow will require you to keep a keen eye on the ambient temperature, hydration levels and so on.
Australia's remarkable flora and fauna are one of its greatest boons, but the sheer uniqueness of Australian wildlife can be a double-edged sword -- species from other parts of the world that are introduced either deliberately or accidentally can wreak havoc on local ecosystems, as the native life is simply unprepared to deal with the growth of organisms it has never encountered before.
While cane toads and wild hogs might be two of the more notorious invasive species infesting the Australian countryside, not all invasive species are animals, and the humble pond apple tree, a relatively small and slender tree bearing apple-like fruits, can be remarkably destructive if left to grow unhindered.
