Native Landscapes

 Landscaping with Native Plants for Wildlife & Cultural Values 

What We Do

Our focus is to help individuals and organizations understand and participate in their ecological sense of place. This can be done in a variety of ways - by providing ecological assessment to inform customers of their landscape locations' past, current, and potential condition (aka assessment), by actively participating in a partial or a complete ecological restoration of their site, or simply by suggesting a few native plants that might interest them.
