Our Homes Green Living

  • Near-organically maintained gardens, which are professionally designed and stocked with beautiful plants suited to our local environment
  • Larger vegetation to increase air quality and provide shading for homes
  • Energy efficient compact fluorescent light globes
  • Shaded outdoor living areas that are open to allow cross-flow ventilation
  • Glazed windows
  • Architecturally designed homes orientated North/South wherever possible to maximise energy efficiency, with garages on western walls to minimise heat absorption in living areas

  • Available extras include:

  • Light colour tones for external surfaces/roof increasing sunlight reflection and decreasing heat
