Things to consider when creating a balcony garden
Whether your goal is to grow you own food, create a private oasis or simply diffuse the starkness of your concrete balcony, a garden will bring calm and become a peaceful and healthy sanctuary to relax in. Discover what you need to check on, how to plan, what to plant and important maintenance tips.

How building sustainability can be a communal activity
Going greener in your scheme is beneficial for everyone. Achieving building sustainability is a community activity. Discover all the things you, your neighbours and your committee could be doing to make your Scheme more sustainable.  Not only will they improve your life, but also reduce your costs.
Is it possible to have individual water meters?
If you're in a Scheme built before 2008, chances are your complex has just one water meter.  This means that owners pay the same portion of the total bill, regardless of how many people reside in the unit or how much water is consumed. However it is possible to have separate water meters installed.  See our article to find out what is involved.
