Home Living : April 21st 2009
HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, April 21, 2009 1 Thriving Habitat In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Sustainability in the garden was the dominant theme at this year's International Flower and Garden Show. The horticultural and floral extravaganza, held in Melbourne recently, saw Phillip Johnson's Habitat garden (pictured) win overall best in the show. The garden was a total celebration of the environment. He says he hopes people are inspired to get back to the grassroots and to ecosystems that support the future of the planet. As part of Phillip's holistic approach, the Habitatgarden had no connection to mains power. The lighting, the hot outdoor shower and the waterfall were powered by strategically-sited solar collectors. A billabong was designed, in true Aussie fashion, to fill up after rain and drop its level in dry periods. Chooks, a rotary clothesline, a vegetable patch and a hive of native bees were other features that could be easily incorporated into the home garden. But the stars of this garden were the granite boulders thathad been craned in, including the 12-tonne beauty behind the shower. He says he rescued these from a quarry -- they would normally have been crushed into roadbase. Details: www.yates.com.au Water wiseChoosing more efficient products helps to save water.
