Finally. In this great article, we're starting to see where sustainability is evolving with beautiful aesthetic - form and function are starting to work together: "Over the past five years, as climate change has become more obvious and energy costs have spiraled up, a number of designers have begun to champion an approach to landscaping that marries traditional environmental concerns — sustainability, biodiversity, restoration, conservation — with a sensitivity to aesthetics and a flexibility that they said was missing from green-gardening crusades of the past."

The pictures are marvelous and the overview of the landscaping world is informative. We only wish we could also see INSIDE these houses as well....
