Land in Australia is expensive. However, if you are looking to buy property on the cheap, you can purchase mine land that is sold for reclamation purposes. If you decide to go this route, then you should know that landscaping such land is no easy task. This is because the topsoil is stripped away and special treatment is required to re-vegetate the land. Part of such treatment involves spraying the land with a slurry mixture of seed, fertiliser, mulch and water.
