Natural Habitats all Bronzed Up


Natural Habitats are pleased to announce their ‘Living Lounge’ collected two Bronze awards at the Ellerslie Flower Show in Christchurch last week for ‘Large Exhibit’ & ‘Lighting’.

The Natural Habitats ‘Living Lounge’ is an outdoor garden room, featuring the structural elements of Green Walls, Green Screens, a Green Roof (EcoPillows) and the natural elements of grasses, water, timber and fire.

Inspiration was drawn from retrospective 1970’s design. A sunken conversation pit is the focal point of this minimalist garden, where people can sit back, relax and chat. This informal social space is decorated with planting, emulating features such as shag pile and funky fabrics.

The exhibit featured 4000 plants, which are predominantly Carex grasses and tussocks. The hedging is constructed with Corokia and the Green Beams with Hedera canarensis.

Natural Habitats’ Green Wall and Roofs are at the leading edge of contemporary landscape design and green build solutions. They are a lightweight, automated system where irrigation is built into the panel. Green Walls and Green Roofs will play an important role to the future sustainability of our urban environment.
