Rain gardens and green roofs

Posted by: Gardening with Jane Edmanson - For a little MAGIC in your garden | 6 December, 2012 - 3:32 PM
Rain gardens are Australia's new approach to saving water and protecting the environment

It is something different that is happening around apartments, houses and office spaces. Rain gardens are when storm water is channeled into garden beds or above ground containers and act like a sponge.

Green roofs give pockets of vegetation that have great cooling benefits for our city.

  • Hi Jane, My garden at San Remo has been invaded by hundreds of flying insects. Don't know what they are - about 1cm long mainly black with orange tips.They are clustered over leaves - are they good bugs or bad bugs? Do we try and get rid of them or just ignore them. Apparently last week on the very hot day there were clouds of them flying over the town. Love your tips
