Welcome to the 14th Edition of Outdoor Design Source, Australia’s most comprehensive directory.
Welcome to the 14th Edition of Outdoor Design Source, Australia’s most comprehensive directory of landscape and external works, products and services.
Featuring everything needed to specify an external works project, from planning and design through to hard and soft landscaping and maintenance, Outdoor Design Source has the entire landscape architecture, design and construction industries covered.
This year, our Exemplary Projects Showcase is bigger and better than before. Featuring both exciting local and international projects, our showcase includes some of Australia's most renowned companies including Atlantis Water Management, Landscape Solutions, Elmich, Simpson Landscapes and Consultants, Eureka Landscapes and Design Landscapes. We believe this year's showcase is exemplary in every sense of the word.
This year’s front cover, provided by Atlantis Water Management, is a creative glimpse into the future of what landscaping can look like. It demonstrates lush vertical and rooftop gardens, where, rather than only using the precious limited space on the ground to grow plants, we can make clever use of the vertical and rooftop space of buildings. The cover demonstrates not only beautiful gardens grown along the ground in an explosion of colour, but thriving plants on the sides and roofs of buildings grown with water from rainwater systems and water re-use solutions.
Increased vegetation within cities not only looks attractive, livens up the space and removes the “concrete jungle” look which has sadly been built over previous decades, but it also reduces heat and air contamination, which is good news for residents. It also creates habitat for wildlife. In the Atlantis Green City Design, urban development is integrated with nature to form ecologically sustainable cities and communities.
A big thank you goes out to the industry associations who support and endorse Outdoor Design Source. Having the support of the industry is vital to the success of the directory and ensures Outdoor Design Source remains at the forefront of the landscape and external works industry.
