Water Wise

Sustainability is very important to us at SC Landscapes in Geelong. One of our key services is to provide drought-tolerant gardens that are low-maintenance and easy to look after. With temperamental weather conditions, drought and water restrictions, water-wise gardens are essential in Victoria. Incorporating a range of drought and water-wise techniques into your garden design will conserve water and save you money on your next water bill.

SC Landscapes can advise on a range of water-wise garden initiatives, including:

  • drought-tolerant plant selection
  • water-wise native plants
  • rainwater tanks and rainwater capture
  • grey water recycling systems
  • water efficient garden watering systems
  • irrigation and reticulation.

We live on the driest inhabited continent on Earth and droughts are a recurring event. A well designed drought-tolerant garden means you can still have an attractive, maintainable garden and enjoyable outdoor environment. Gardens that have been designed with sustainability principles often see an increase in birds, bees and butterflies, bringing your garden to life.

Talk to us about your ideas for your water-wise garden and we will create a landscape design to suit your style and budget. Take a look at some of our completed Geelong landscape designs for inspiration and contact us on 0427 068 264.

Remember too that decking and pergolas can decrease the amount of water needed for your garden and yet substantially increase the usable space for entertaining and relaxation.
