Landscape Architects and Designers

Designing for the future

Architects and Landscape Designers are now starting to focus much more on sustainability in design, which has always been one of the important principles of permaculture design.

WaterUps® can play an important role in this move to more sustainable planning by helping us save water and make urban greenspaces easier to maintain. WaterUps can be incorporated in designs for:

  • Balcony, roof and common area gardens;
  • Civil works for easier maintenance of ornamentals;
  • Community gardens and urban agriculture, and much more.

Industry trends

What the industry is expecting?

Landscape design industry leaders is continuing to focus on:-

  • Climate change and increasing demands for sustainable design;
  • Increasing use of edible plants;
  • Demand for a organic approach;
  • Low maintenance solutions becoming even more important.

Greater focus on sustainability is being demanded for all new construction projects. 

The Green Building Council of Australia is leading the way in certification for sustainable building construction.
