Reconstruction principles

  • Не навредить Ботаническому саду
    Do no harm to the Botanical Garden

    Careful attitude is the main principle of reconstruction. We strive to preserve and increase the existing vegetation as much as possible.

  • Сохранение самобытности и целостности
    Preserving Originality and Integrity

    We are aware of the uniqueness of the Almaty Botanical Garden and scrupulously choose each plant, regularly consulting with the dendrologists of the Institute of Botanics and Phytointroduction. 

  • Обеспечение устойчивого развития
    Providing sustainable development

    We are committed to a systematic approach involving the creation of a public garden with elements of inclusion, the arrangement of a comfortable navigation system, environmentally friendly food courts and toilets. 

  • Долгосрочность
    Long service life

    We use modern materials and technologies with a long service life and high wear resistance for landscaping and restoration.

  • Применение новых технологий
    Applying new technologies

    Equipping with advanced irrigation, lighting and video surveillance systems for stable development of the Botanical Garden and comfortable rest for citizens.
