Biodiversity is short for ‘Biological diversity’ which is the variety of life on Earth and is a measure of the variety of life forms in any given area. It’s the way that our plants, animals, insects and microorganisms from such a wide range of ecosystems adapt to the way they react with the environment.

By the very nature of services Eco Landscapes provides as a corporate grounds maintenance contractor, we carry out works across in all areas that are of a high value to wildlife and to places that would like to bring more environmentally friendly options to their area. These works vary from insect hotels to bee hives etc. We carry out a wide range of both contracted and voluntary biodiversity services.

Eco Landscapes considers legal compliance, sustainable development and good environmental performance to be a fundamental to its core business. Our approach at any site will always be informed by observed standards of environmental protection and management. Eco Landscapes are proud to say that we honor our requirements towards our ISO 14001:2015 and have an Environmental Policy to enhance environmental performance, so, as a minimum, we commit to the following on all our contracts:

  • During our quotation stage of grounds maintenance works, we will always evaluate the sites situation regarding the environment, whether the site may be part of a conservation area etc.
  • All our team members are well trained by our Health & Safety department by all completing Tool Box Talks before being allowed to commence works on a site
  • Our teams and contract managers are very proactive in ensuring that we share our opinions on more environmentally and wildlife friendly options of working
