What better place to go “green” that in the great outdoors? Eckersley Garden Architecture has indeed gone the green way in its sustainable garden design. “Climate change is having a real impact on the way people are approaching garden making in Australia. Our traditional approach of copying northern European gardens is failing as our country faces protracted drought, flood and fire,” according to the Richmond, Australia-based landscape architecture firm. “There needs to be a change in attitude toward gardens if they are to be successful in the future.” This forward-thinking eco innovator designed this garden as a personal attempt at a fully sustainable garden using drought-tolerant, native plants. A “Natural Pool” is chemical-free and puts the principles of natural filtration into practice: the water run through the roots of native water plants growing along the edge.
