Frogspark provides comfort whilst being kind to the environment. The home's passive solar design provides warmth and sunlight as well as beautiful views whilst the back to grid solar array, solar hot water system and rainwater supply further reduce its carbon footprint. Care is taken in provisioning and cleaning to avoid harsh chemicals and local products are used wherever possible.
We have been rewarded in turn with an abundance of wildlife including kangaroos, water birds and importantly at least 5 species of frogs indicating that Frogspark is indeed treading lightly!
