TIME FOR CHANGE - We often hear the word sustainable touted in various landscape articles but is it enough for our landscape designs to be sustainable if the construction practices behind them are not? In this issue, Daniel McNamara throws down the gauntlet to challenge industry professionals to adopt smarter, more energy efficient practices in a bit to transform the industry in the GCC so it can continue to compete with modern economies. He starts by suggesting that unskilled workers should be better utilised, instead of continuing with old fashioned construction methods and habits, it’s time to modernise equipment and move away from doing jobs by hand. The result he says will be a more efficient, more energised workforce as well as lower costs for clients. And of course smarter landscapes.
Staying with smart landscape designs, we take you to Thailand to showcase a new hospital garden that promotes calm and aids recovery. We also feature a residential project outside of Buenos Aires a luxury residential gated community and a Venetian style in the capital.
