Eco Project Review July 2022
The team have been busy again on maintenance visits this month, taking extra care in ensuring the roofs and other green installations they visit are coping with the extreme heat and are properly irrigated.

Insect pollinators are vital for supporting our food production and for biodiversity, but they face increasing pressures from habitat loss and diseases. Although flowers seem to be visited by a great diversity of insects, the main pollinators are derived from only four insect groups and bees are easily the most important of these in terms of pollination.
In order to sustain a wide diversity of pollinators in the countryside it is vitally important to provide a range of flower resources throughout their active period – between March and September. Green roofs can and do play an increasingly important roll in this, both in the countryside and the city.

As this example shows urban greening is effective, attractive and beneficial to all of us.
