Garden design

Whether you're adding a few new plants or redesigning your whole garden, incorporating a waterwise design into your garden is always a great idea.

As our state experiences the effects of a drying climate, more West Australians are embracing fresh water thinking and switching to waterwise plants and gardening practices. Waterwise plants aren't just beautiful and full of colour – they're easy to maintain too!

Combine these principles with our waterwise designs and plants and you will be on your way to creating a functional, attractive garden that will thrive in our conditions.

Here are some guides and design ideas to help you create a waterwise garden appropriate for your region:
