Understanding Your Needs

We're your landscape guide, sounding board, and devil's advocate working with you to enhance your overall landscape. After determining the scope and specifics of your project, your lifestyle needs and budget, we'll get to work on ideas. We'll come up with several iterations for you to consider. We present our proposal with images, drawings, and renderings, so we are on the same page with you moving forward.

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.
