COOL – The unCOOL

Display garden

While three sides of my display with be ‘COOL ’, verdant, colourful, productive and abundant, there will be a dark side to my display, literally, and that will be very un-COOL!?

One side is dark Monument grey, with exposed metal fencing, black pavers, fake turf, pebbles and a few Yuccas as the only living things. This combination is stereotypical of many gardens I see as I drive around Adelaide, South Australia and even across Australia for that matter. It is un-COOL, in every sense. It is hot, harsh, and there is no biodiversity, and when multiplied across multiple properties, it is making our suburbs, cities and towns less liveable.
