Indigenous Landscape Design Consultant


Indigenous Landscaping Creating and Managing Urban Wildlife Habitat We are the experts at bringing nature back into your world

I design landscapes and gardens that are nature friendly 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.
