Richard Blacklock began Lilly Pilly Indigenous Landscapes in 1984 building commercially on the training he received in Conservation & Land Management and Horticulture at Ryde College.
We started Lilly Pilly to develop leading edge ideas in Australian native plant environmentalism.
We believe that the native gardens are the most sustainable ones in the long term.
We know that bush regeneration techniques work and that we can teach you to use them for sustainability in your own garden.
Native gardening is the structural way that Lilly Pilly Indigenous Landscapes teams work within the landscape to maintain, restore and sustain the existing environment.
The benefits of a healthy indigenous landscape of native plants are
- Increased footprint of native fauna
- Diversity of insects
- Beauty of native species their foliage and flowers
- Restoration of soil ecology
- More sustainable use of water resources
