It's Time to Design

This is going to be fun

Sustainable landscaping is a smart approach to designing the man-made landscapes that surround our buildings while also accommodating and incorporating​​​​ our existing native landscapes.

These remarkable bionetworks maintain themselves and thrive by being part of the natural cycles of our environment.

But sustainable landscaping is about more than just planting native. It is also about designing landscapes to fit the urban ecology created by humans.

Knowledge and use of ecological principles can lead to sustainable designs with an emphasis on beauty, conservation and ease of maintenance.

Nature has already provided all the processes, materials, and resources needed. Design in harmony. Work in harmony.​​
