Care, thought and skill are needed to properly care for native landscapes. After installation, a period of nurturing is critical to the long term health of the ecosystem that we are trying to emulate. Long term maintenance practices can build on a good foundation. By carefully observing the various plant communities we can suggest simple and effective maintenance practices for the landscape that will create long lived and stable habitats.

We work with State and Federal Agencies, municipalities, property managers, schools and others to help nurture their native landscape efforts.
We are certain that a successful native planting can thrive when thoughtful and knowledgeable maintenance is provided. The rewards of a well maintained native landscape are endlessly enjoyable!
The first years of a native landscape maintenance program are of utmost importance. This is when the native plants are getting established and often need assistance to overcome the fierce competition of pre-existing weeds on the site. Our team understands the necessary steps to take and the amount of patience required in order to allow the native plants to successfully establish and overcome the competition of weeds. Native plants are slow to establish and need to be given good initial and ongoing care and maintenance. The result is a successful and amazingly beautiful native landscape!
Long term maintenance of successful and stable native plant communities requires knowledgeable personnel and a light steering hand. Our team provides the skill necessary to care for your ecosystems and ensure their full potential.
