I forgot to mention that I planted a couple more plants along the fence at the top of the 'cliff' above the driveway ...I'm sure I've put pictures in before. I'd already planted a Dusky Coral Pea and a Potato Vine, and I planted two native wisteria (hardenbergia) yesterday - purple and white http://www.abc.net.au/gardening/stories/s1460240.htm which will also cascade down (hopefully) eventually over the cliff.
I'm now on the hunt for banksia and other rambling type roses ... I love ivy but it's just too uncontrollable and mad so I'm not putting any of that in .... it goes absolutely bonkers at mum and dad's and they're on black sand, I'd hate to think what it would do on our topsoil .. and ours isn't anywhere near as good as the soil closer to the coast - too scary to contemplate!
