The Environmental Management Department of the City of Durban launched the Green Roof Pilot Project on Wold Biodiversity Day as part of the Municipal Climate Protection Programme. Bio-Diverse Green Roofs if widely  would help bring biodiversity back into the heart of the city and would help cities to adapt better to climate change and lessen its effects.

Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth and includes all the species and ecosystems that are found in a region. Maintaining and restoring biodiversity is essential to ensure a natural and healthy natural environment and a good quality of life.

Each of us needs to be taking our own small steps, whether this is planting indigenous gardens or starting our own green roofs. Every contribution will help to ensure that biodiversity is not lost from the city.

Ecoman Durban Indigenous Landscape Design Consultant

Bio-Diverse Indigenous Landscaping I design landscapes and gardens that are Bio-Diverse as well as being pleasing to the eye

Landscapes and Gardens that are Nature Friendly

I use my many years of landscape planning and design as well as landscape construction experience coupled to my vast knowledge of the requirements of nature to create habitat suitable for birds, butterflies and other creatures to live and breed in.


I always apply the basic principles of good landscape design to create an aesthetically pleasing garden that at the same time satisfies the living requirements of the target creatures that I would like to attract. My speciality is to attract birds, butterflies and solitary bees. I design and build Bio-Diverse Roof Gardens


So let Ecoman design and create a garden for you that will be a haven for wildlife such as birds, butterflies, frogs and lizards in the number of species comparable to Kruger National Park.
