H2O My Goodness! Beautiful Designs for Outdoor Spaces

February 6, 2012 by

Oh how I love the work of H2O Designsa Melbourne company that specializes in the custom design and production of dynamically designed water features, planter boxes, and outdoor seating for rooftop gardens, balconies, and courtyards.

Planted tables and water feature on South Melbourne rooftop terrace.

For use in its many design applications, H2O developed a patented rigid and lightweight composite material, LICOM76, that has a great strength to weight ratio, is UV stable, and 100 per cent water resistant. Easily formed and shaped, LICOM76 is lightweight, which makes it easy to transport and helps simplify the installation of retrofitted existing landscapes.

H2O Wise
As the company was keenly aware, environmental changes, drought, and water restrictions have made everyone sensitive to the need to both conserve and recycle water. H2Owise is their patented water feature design which addresses these environmental issues.

This private courtyard has a cascading water wall. 

Easily integrated into any of their water feature designs, its operation requires only a nominal volume of collected rainwater.

A hidden water storage unit allows the water features to function for extended periods without topping up from an external water source, thereby conserving water.

More to come soon about this company’s vertical garden system….
