Following the book Eco House, which concentrated on intelligent solutions for the home interior, this book concentrates on the exterior of the home with solutions and objects demonstrating that a home's new ecological era is not only found inside but can reach every corner of the land on which it is built. Eco Design Outside features dozens of photographs of cutting-edge designs in real-life context with informative captions, house and garden plans, and electrical, water and lighting schematics. Combining ideas with achievability, the book is more than inspiring; it is eminently useful. Some of the topics are: Lighting - Room orientation to the sun, solar tubes to redirect sunlight indoors, home-security lighting automation interfaced with communication needs; Water Conservation - Rainwater collection and recirculation systems, solar showers, ef!cient watering devices; Landscaping - Living walls, green roofs, natural pools ('biopools'), xeriscaping garden plans and plants; Ecological Building Materials - Furniture, benches, decking and fencing, natural oil treatments, paving and stonework. Successful television shows prove that people want this information as they undertake greening their home. Eco Design Outside is a comprehensive source of design inspiration and expert advice that will be of practical use and inspiration for homeowners, designers and students of design.
