Lasting for at least 1 hour, this professional Ecotourism guided tour, delivered by Alison, uses Timandra by the Sea garden to showcase how a sustainable garden is developed. What conditions prevailed from the outset? What are the sustainable influences that have been used within this garden? The various names of plants are discussed that work with different conditions i.e. wet and dry. As our climate changes we need to be well versed about what these changes will do to our gardens, state parks and public spaces. Unless sustainable practices are utilised from the outset, especially in relation to urban planning and landscape design, then gardens en masse will fail because of either too much rain or insufficient rain. Wind is also a major factor that needs to be discussed and how we can better protect our spaces with the use of more trees.
These tours, delivered by an Eco certified tour guide, multi-award winning sustainable landscape designer and garden author, cover a lot within the hour. The whole experience is about passion – passion for the environment; passion for gardens and passion for creativity that enables gardens such as Timandra to be a place for learning.
