Our Philosophy

Our goal for each project is to fuse aesthetic beauty with ecological function, advancing environmental health and biodiversity, while still creating beautiful and timeless designs. Using native plants preserves the natural heritage of our state, provides food and habitat for important wildlife, and increases the number of active pollinators in our environment. We look at each project as a way to build another wildlife corridor that has the possibility to connect neighborhoods, counties, watersheds, and even states.
