The partnership between landscaping and sustainability is an important part of our design priorities, incorporating the natural environment with newly planted native landscapes that will be long lasting and eventually self-reliant. Restoring native plants to the landscape provides an opportunity for the land to heal from being disturbed and to build an environment where multiple wildlife species can thrive and plant material can prosper in a naturalized setting.
Native plants have several advantages over introduced plants. These hardy plants are adapted to local soil conditions and climate so can survive our winter cold and summer heat. Native plants provide deep strong root structure to reduce erosion and runoff, and are less vulnerable to insects and disease so can require less water and fertilizer. It takes several years for native plantings to look attractive and to establish but it will be well worth the wait.
