Green Earth offers a unique, highly trained service driven by Ecology and Nature Conservation. It is a family-run business conducting Landscape Design, Wildlife Gardening and Ecological Consultancy work all around Cornwall. Operating both privately and commercially, they specialise in creating Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) in all of our work. Tom’s broad background in Ecology and Garden Design enables the business to offer the unique service of Ecological Survey, Design, Create and Manage, all under one name.

​They can create multi functional spaces and features that balance our clients needs and tastes with ecological value, combining contemporary garden design with wildlife conservation. Yes, you can have both. Tom now manages a small team of grafters with a wide range of useful and transferable skills.

The aim is to help people maximise the wildlife value of their site or garden through strategic enhancements and design new spaces that function like true ecosystems. Whether its making subtle tweaks to established gardens, major overhauls or designing biodiverse spaces from scratch, they have got it covered. Using education, training and experience within the ecological consultancy sector we can accurately and efficiently decide how best to maximise Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) in ways that also enhance the experience of an outdoor space.
