The Life Green Group Journey
Life Green Group as a company has embarked on a journey to lower our carbon footprint. We have acknowledged the effects of climate change and plan to garden accordingly We aim to turn food and garden waste into nutrients for the soil onsite though our worm farms and industrial composting systems. We are also converting lawn into veld gardens in order reduce costs and water consumption. Life Landscapes aims to be indigenous in as many ways possible.
Corporate Garden Installations and Landscape Construction
The Life Landscapes installation department works closely with landscape architects and large construction companies to install corporate gardens, residential estates, green roofs and exterior greenwalls.
Life Landscapes will also take care of additional garden services on site including hardscaping, water feature installations, tree transplants, irrigation and sprinkler set up and lead-time items.
The installation department has access to the Life Green Group fleet consisting of: 10-ton trucks, 8-ton trucks, 5-ton trucks, TLBs, skid-steer loaders, tractors and the latest garden equipment in order to complete the job on time. Our installation department also has experience with driving and operating heavy equipment and cranes.
