an eco garden ...
A squally weather front has been moving east.
On Sunday we took a walk along the promenade in Worthing.
Where the promenade comes to an end on the western side of the pier, is an eco-garden set up to encourage the conservation of water.
An area on shingle beach, with wooden sculptures and seashore plants. Plants which thrive on water from rainfall alone.
A waxy coating to the leaves of plants will help to reduce water loss.
The sculptures would look really good in our garden, in any garden.
Like me, you may have an area in your garden which in summer turns to desert. It makes ecological sense to enhance the naturally dry, sun-baked conditions instead of constantly trying to alter it.
