2014 Habitat Hero Winner ~ Peacock Yard, Lakewood, CO, designed by Gardenz
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.
