Stepping Lightly On Earth

Water Sensitive Gardens

design drawing of lily padWater as we all know is a scarce natural resource & we are ever so conscious of it. We believe that proposing the ‘right plant in the right place’ is at the core of a water-sensitive garden. At Earth Matters Consulting we believe in :

  • Sustainable Planting
  • Water efficiency, solar access, biodiversity, indigenous materials
  • Minimise waste production & maintenance requirements.

A requirement by some Councils is for the provision of Rain Gardens.
Earth Matters Consulting has designed them and this ties in with our philosophy of “Stepping Lightly’ as rain water is harvested and retained on the site to further minimise (potable) water dependency.
