The importance of boosting nature

idverde provides a range of ecology and biodiversity services to meet each client’s specific requirements. Our expertise in green space management means that we can deliver advice on the ground, achieving practical benefits for the environment and wildlife. 

idverde's Ecology and Biodiversity Services

We offer a range of ecology and biodiversity enhancing services, including habitat and species surveys (including extended Phase 1 and Phase 2 assessments). We also deliver practical services to complement our survey work; for example, the identification and treatment of invasive plant species. 

Our colleagues are trained to act in an environmentally sensitive way, and receive biodiversity training so that they can identify issues and act accordingly, e.g. the potential for nesting birds to be present.

Biodiversity Advice

idverde produces detailed management and maintenance plans for your site that take full account of biodiversity and deliver measurable gains, e.g. designing and installing planting schemes that are of value to pollinating insects. We can provide targeted and clear management advice for specific species, as well as more general site-wide guidance. The nature of our work as a green space management contractor means that we consider biodiversity on a daily basis and are experts in ensuring it is preserved and enhanced across our contracts.

Biodiversity Action Plans

Much has been heard on the news recently about the threat to our planet and ecosystems, from pollution to the potential extinction of many animal and plant species. There is much that we can do at a local level to improve biodiversity, and local Biodiversity Action Plans are a mechanism for focussing resources and utilising local partnerships to conserve and enhance local biodiversity and, in combination with others, national biodiversity.
