I think the link you gave points to Patrick Blanc's house in Paris not one
of his projects in Sydney. Water use might not be as high as you think. I

plants that suit the site which is always a plus, compared to those who want
to grow lawns in the desert.

Just servicing my city garden is time-consuming!!! Plus, of course, in my
