Description

Did you know that a cleverly designed garden can help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter? In this free workshop Actsmart’s Ren Webb will explain how to create a garden that’s a place to relax, a place to grow produce and encourage biodiversity, and a place that helps keep your home comfortable in every season.

Topics covered include:

  • The Canberra climate

  • The creation of microclimates

  • The sun’s path in summer and winter

  • What shading can contribute to cooling in summer

  • The use of deciduous plants to create shade in summer and sun in winter

  • Planting to take advantage of summer breezes and create shelter from winter winds
