Sustainable Landscaping and Technology

Plant selection plays an integral part in
having a healthy and sustainable garden so plants chosen are
interesting, tough and waterwise.
Also very importantly, they
are SUITABLE for the
type of garden that you desire. And we will always
include a few trees - Essential in the modern waterwise
style of garden it is you like we will recommend the most
suitable materials and construction along with
a creative selection of plants with seasonal change to achieve the
look and feel that you desire.
Think Green Landscapes uses
healthy natural local products wherever possible to create a healthy
shown towards sustainable building materials using mostly local
natural products such
as limestone, granite & coffee rocks and timbers. These are all
sourced from local quarries in and around Perth.
For decking we
usually recommend using either recycled & remilled Jarrah or
'engineered' Jarrah decking boards which are made up of
finger-jointed shorter lengths which might otherwise be wasted.
This system produces longer straighter boards with minimal
bending/warping and reduced waste during production. All good
things in our book!
In garden beds,
Think Green Landscapes utilises a layered mixture of Soil Solver
(Kaolin clay based), manure, lupin mulch and chunky
mulch (usually woodchips or pine bark) to create a healthy growing
environment for new plants.
Soil Solver is a
Kaolin Clay and rock minerals product which creates permanent
improvement of the soils water and nutrient holding ability. In
garden beds we combine this with well-composted manures
(sheep/cow) and lupin mulch which break down together to improve the soil
by adding both nutrients and organic matter to create a
beautiful living soil. Then a good layer of chunky mulch on top
to help insulate and protect the soil.
High Flow Dripline
In lawn areas our irrigation systems utilise highly
nozzles on popup bodies.
In gardens we prefer to use individual pressure compensated
shrubblers (one or two per plant) or high flow dripline.
Experience has taught us that in sandy soils, these products are
by-far the most efficient and trouble-free methods of providing direct and efficient
watering for lawns and gardens.
