International Sustainable Landscaping Programme

We have been writing for some time about environmental landscaping and ensuring that our landscapes are self-sustaining.  I have briefly described our sustainable landscaping programme that we have launched internationally and will be running both nationally and internationally.

People working in the landscaping industry need to practice sustainable landscaping and this programme will guide management and supervisory staff in their understanding and ensuring that our landscapes become more self-sustaining. Staff landscaping adopt a different methodology in terms of working with plant material and ensuring that everything that we do in a landscape will be self-enhancing and self-sustaining in the long-term.

The purpose of this course is:

1.    To create an awareness of the struggle between nature and man for space on the planet.

2.    To provide practical information on how to make a difference, even a small one, in your gardens and communities.

3.    To plant indigenous vegetation and to encourage wildlife.

4.    Your garden can contribute to the restoration of the natural ecology in your area.
