Backyard Gardening Australia is ran by Daniel and Katelyn Dohrman. We live in Kwinana, south of Perth, Western Australia which is a temperate zone. We live on 660sqm with our two dogs, Roxy and Sherlock. Our garden is a combination of traditional garden beds and aquaponics system. We’re working on a hydroponics system soon, and increasing our potted plants.
I am a Road Service Technician for a Hire/Retail company and spend most of my day working on elevated work platforms and travelling the vast distances between sites seeing this great country of ours. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, free-diving and gardening.
I am a Customer Relationship Officer for a bank, helping people with loans and accounts. Outside of work I love making music, baking and taking photos. See more of my photos here
This blog documents our experiences in the garden and kitchen. It includes tips, tricks, and lessons learned the hard way. We like to eat the produce from our garden, and so keep it as organic as we can. We like to grow things that we can’t readily buy locally and having fresh fruit and vegetables.
