Making sustainable attainable – 10 simple ways to eco-friendly garden design.

Just a little patch of garden – that’s often all we need as human beings. Somewhere to grow one or two plants, attract a few bees and generally give us a sense of wellbeing. But one thing has made those outdoor spaces not only important for our welfare, but vital for the future of the planet – climate change.

So here, we’re sharing ten ways for you to build a little more sustainability into your next landscaping or garden design project.

Sustainable Garden Design; Nature Sets the New Standards

There was a time, long ago, when you couldn’t walk far across Britain without tripping over a beaver dam. Sadly, sometime around the 16th century, the last of the Eurasian beavers to live wildly in Britain were hunted to extinction.

Today though, against a complex background of global warming and climate change, the reintroduction of these creatures to the countryside is teaching landscapers and gardeners valuable lessons about water sustainability – even in the most heavily urbanised areas.
