NaturNah: My garden becomes a biotope

NDR

The name of the Hamburg gardening and landscaping company says it all.
“Biotope” is the name of the company that Dirk Ebhardt founded 20 years ago. The aim is to design gardens, playgrounds and company premises in such a way that people AND nature benefit from them.

“Unfortunately, many gardens still consist of roses, lawn and rhododendron. This concept is easy to maintain and many may like it, but for nature as a whole such spaces are almost wasted! In times of insect and bird deaths, however, more and more citizens are waking up. They also want to help the environment with their piece of private green, but they often lack specialist knowledge – and this is where biotope comes into play. Dirk and his employees know exactly: which plants thrive where, which neighbouring plants support each other, how to lure bees, butterflies, birds and amphibians into the garden and at the same time make this habitat usable and experienceable for humans.
