Educating our Home Owners
For Garden Cities it is not enough for us to just design and build green houses. We make a point of raising awareness in our communities around environmental issues and how to practically respond to them. Lately we have focused on water-wise gardening, offering our new homeowners a range of landscaping options that help save water.
Our full homeowner Greening Guide is available to all residents of Garden Cities. This easy-to-read illustrated booklet highlights the importance and benefits of going green and provides practical tips on how to lighten our daily footprint. It contains details of the green building design features we've included all our new Garden Cities houses, things such as: eco-insulation, window glazing, heat pumps with timers, water-efficient taps and showerheads, and kitchen units that are especially designed with a two-bin recycling system.
