What is ecological landscaping?
Ecological landscaping works with the natural systems of our environment rather than in opposition.
This means we build beneficial soil life, choose plants that are adapted to your yard’s microclimates, create beneficial connections between elements in your yard which creates less work and more fun.
It is a blend of horticulture and ecology that is applied to solve your landscaping problems.
We design landscapes that are in tune with the way nature functions.
In the past century, horticultural pursuits have led us astray from this logic.
Let’s change that.
Our Unique Ecological Landscape Services
You are allowed to eat plants in your landscape! Everything from vegetables to fruit trees can be artfully incorporated into your yard’s landscape.
Concentrating your food production in one area can make sense at times, and if you have a sunny spot in your yard it's likely you have the ability to grow some of your favorite vegetables. We utilize native plants to bring beneficial wildlife to help the vegetable garden as well.
Perennial Food Systems
One of the most sustainable ways to grow food is to use perennials. Planting fruit and nut trees will leave a legacy of healthy food for generations to come. Edible Forest Gardens is one approach we use when gardening in this style
Our native plants are adapted to the various growing conditions that yards present. With proper site analysis we can utilize their tens of thousands of years of evolution to our benefit. The result? Plants that will thrive, creating a lower maintenance garden.
Water is a gift in the right place and disastrous in the wrong place. Well managed water can keep mosquito populations down, prevent erosion and damage to your property, and lower your watering bill. Water is our clients' biggest concern. There is an opportunity in every problem. Click here to find the opportunity in your yard.
