As the 2014 Habitat Hero award-winning gardens demonstrate, wildscapes are as different as the gardeners and designers who create them. They can be formal gardens, meadow-style expanses, flower-filled cottage borders, or natural landscapes. Whatever the style, a wildscape is based on five simple principles:

  • Create diverse layers and shelter
  • Grow natural food
  • Provide water for drinking and bathing
  • Control invasive species
  • Conserve water, energy and chemical use.
