Along with designing a beautiful home, a great way to set yourself apart is by designing a fantastic garden with native plants to attract local wildlife like birds and butterflies.
As discussed in Hint #16 – do it yourself, we suggest saving money by doing your own landscaping. Lots of landscapers will use imported plants as they are “pretty”, but Australia has some fantastic flora and our local critters will appreciate you for providing them with food and a place to live.
Even on a small lots, its easy to make your own little garden beds. I myself own a 430m2 lot and have about 150m2 of garden beds. No mowing and there have already been heaps of local animals that have taken residence.
We all have a responsibility to make our world a better place, and why not do it if you can save some money and increase the visual appeal of your home at the same time!
