TREES AND FLORA

Since the time we started our work on the lake we have been consulting experts, birders, environmentalists, conservationists to determine the appropriate tree and plant species for plantation. From fruit trees to indigenous native trees, shrubs to climbers, creepers and medicinal plants, we have a diverse range of species and colours planted at the lake. Most of the species were planted keeping the biodiversity in mind and the fauna it would attract that would help build a rich ecosystem.
