ECO YET GREEN
A low-maintenance, water-efficient garden
doesn’t have to be dry and dusty. As shown
in this outdoor area, good plant selection and
landscape design can create a garden that’s
easy-care and visually pleasing. Grass trees offer
a dramatic sculptural look and the spiky Dianella
revoluta ‘Little Rev’ groundcover continues the
look. Little Rev is a native flax that provides
greenery all year. Mondo Landscapes 0417 171

Privacy issues and creating boundaries are
gaining importance in landscape designs.
Timber, synthetic materials and the traditional
plants and trees, or a combination of these,
can encapsulate the theme of the concept and
enhance the atmosphere of the outdoor area.
This elegant design shows a tasteful use of
screening to offer privacy and create separate
areas. Escape Garden Design and Construction

Make your outdoor design more eco friendly
– and more interesting – by using recycled
materials. In this design by South Sea
Landscapes, the grass trees were salvaged,
the letterbox was constructed using recycled
jetty timber and the feature red pot is second-
hand and repainted. South Sea Landscapes 0408
