Sustainable landscape architecture good practices

We generally think that building in a sustainable way, is about the buildings itself. But many times we can contribute to bring down energy consumption, solar heat gaining, sun radiation, and save some water, by implementing some well known practices in our gardens. I am going to concentrate this time on rain gardens, vegetated swales and natural pools. I started to think about the importance of the correct sustainable  landscape practices, as I talked to my canadian client on possible strategies for an Eco-home.
