Creating a sustainable eco-friendly garden is much easier than you think
Green Rooms Gardens & Landscapes is a Sydney-based provider of quality garden design, construction and maintenance services. With a strong commitment to sustainable landscaping practices, Green Rooms has proven time and time again that an eco-friendly garden can be a “designer” garden.
“Our passion is to create stunning outdoor living spaces, whether large or small, and we pride ourselves on original and captivating designs that will continue to amaze and entertain,” says Green Rooms’ director Jock Gammon.
Typically, a garden requires a number of resources for its construction — concrete, plants, compost, irrigation pipe and so forth. There will be additional inputs needed for the maintenance of the garden such as water, fertiliser, pesticides and herbicides, to name a few.
A garden also generates materials that may be harmful to the environment such as green waste and polluted run-off of chemical-laden water. The idea behind sustainable landscaping is to develop ways to reduce these inputs and outputs without sacrificing beauty, economy and ease of maintenance.
“Although it may not be practical to adopt sustainability on all levels of landscaping, it is possible to make changes throughout the garden development process that will reduce the overall impact on the environment. As a company we have a strong interest in sustainability and feel a sense of responsibility to endorse these principles through our landscaping work,” says Jock.
“Although it may not be practical to adopt sustainability on all levels of landscaping, it is possible to make changes throughout the garden development process that will reduce the overall impact on the environment. As a company, Green Rooms has strong interest and sense of responsibility to endorse such principles of landscaping.
“For example, the use of recycled quarry products, energy-efficient LED lights and the establishment of native gardens allow us to build beautiful gardens that have minimal impact on the environment. Offering our customers a product that contributes to the wellbeing of our natural surroundings and gives a sense of responsible living is a core part of our business.
“Alongside our passion for sustainability the Green Rooms team also holds expertise in vegetable gardens and will happily consult interested customers about the ways in which they can implement sustainable solutions in their gardens.”
