Indigenous Landscaping, Creating and Managing Urban Wildlife Habitat

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

Bio-Diverse Green Roof Design and Construction Specialist

I design and construct   “Proudly South African”  Bio-Diverse Green Roofs

I am without a shadow of a doubt the most knowledgeable and experienced green roof design and construction expert in South Africa. I have 23 years of green roof design and construction experience gained both in Germany and in South Africa.
I was the overall technical advisor, plant expert as well as the green roof design and construction expert on the team that undertook the first green roof research done in South Africa which was carried out by the City of Durban under the direction of masters degree student Clive Greenstone.
Drawing on local knowledge gained from our green roof research Clive Greenstone and I co-authored a green roof construction guide for the City of Durban.
I have also designed and constructed a number of large green roofs in association with Clive Greenstone.
I have done and continue to do private research into growing mediums and to source and do suitability trials with potentially suitable local indigenous plants for growing on green roofs.

I am the expert when it comes to green roof design and construction here in South Africa to learn more about the development of Bio-Diverse Green Roofs in South Africa view this video and read the other Green Roof pages.
