Our Award Winning RSPCA project was featured on Gardening Australia TV program.

“Animal shelters are usually unfriendly environments, but this is a perfect example of bringing life to an area that often has a stigma attached to it. The gardens have softened the surroundings and changed the perception of what you’d expect. The fences around the animal zones are black so they’re less noticeable and they’re low so you can see what’s going on and feel part of it.”

Costa believes the design principles could be integrated into any home with pets, because “you might want to protect certain areas, and every backyard has some elements of a pound within it!” The plants at the site are also worth noting. “Steve’s plant selection is great for anyone with a high traffic garden – people with animals or kids playing ball sports.”
