Sustainable Landscape Content
The landscape around Green Solution House features local materials, manages on-site storm water and demonstrates sustainable landscape solutions. Water is the main organising factor. Turning the challenge of a high water table from a problem into an opportunity was the motive for moving 20.000 m³ of soil. This topographical change defines rainwater reservoirs that become seasonal ponds and thriving habitats for local wildlife – not to mention opportunities for human delight. By using local biotopes the site is kept low maintenance and the planting is left to grow wild, helping to increase biodiversity.
