Ecological Landscape Design

The art and science of landscape design and development should be like a musical composition: a symphony of sight, sound, taste, and touch. We design visceral landscapes that engage the senses and nourish the soul. We also design for the planet, guided by ecology and restoration to create regenerative landscape solutions. Learn more about our design process below.

Plants

Plants

We start with a soil test and observation of your property’s microclimates. Then we design plant communities for resilience, year-round beauty, stormwater management, and habitat creation. The answer is always more plants!

Water

Water

A dynamic and healing force of nature, water can add so much vibrance to your landscape. Energize your space with a soothing fountain or waterfall; increase your outdoor recreation with a natural swimming pond; or simply relish in the migrating birds that stop to bathe in your water feature.
