Landscaping – A Sense of Place
As gardeners in a dry climate, we face a
range of challenges. Plant selection goes
a long way to help drought proof the
garden, but even the toughest plants may
fail if ground preparation has not been
carried out correctly.

Landscaping with Australian plants and, in particular, indigenous plants has become increasingly popular as we are coming to embrace the concept of living in the Australian environment as it exists, rather than trying to create a European atmosphere in our gardens.
People are becoming evermore comfortable with this “Sense of Place, ” in which a garden is a reflection of the vegetation in the surrounding natural bushland, a constant and pleasurable reminder of our unique Australian environment.
Apart from these aesthetic emotional and environmental aspects, there are sound practical reasons for considering landscaping with indigenous plants, as these species are suited to the local environment including soils and can withstand drought, flood and frost, while their demands on our most precious (and limited) resource-water- is minimal.
