Be rewarded for creating an environmentally friendly garden.

DID YOU KNOW? Many of our urban landscapes are resource-hungry. They require substantial inputs of water, energy, nutrients and chemicals to survive, may use materials taken from bushland and provide little habitat for native animals.

Sustainable landscapes work in harmony with the local environment. They use good design to integrate low water use plants, non-weedy plants, low chemical use, low energy consumption, habitat creation, water conservation and the use of sustainable products.

The Sustainable Landscapes Incentive Scheme seeks to reward the thorough planning involved in creating a garden that makes a holistic contribution to our environment by addressing all the above Sustainable Landscape Principles.

Whether your outdoor space is a balcony, roof-top, courtyard or back yard you can create a garden that contributes to a sustainable urban environment.
