Ecoman Durban Indigenous Landscape Design Consultant

Bio-Diverse Indigenous Landscaping Landscapes and Gardens that are Nature Friendly


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


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.
