Sustainable & Innovative
Sustainability is a gradient, and through innovative designs and techniques we meet our clients’ goals without compromising complex environmental concerns. Our fundamentals:
- Buy from local growers when possible.
- Know our growers’ practices, preferring organic or neonicotinoid-free.
- Use plants that minimize water use.
- Design to utilize on-site water capture.
- Increase biodiversity — bees! butterflies! creatures!
- Never use toxic fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals.
- Incorporate recycled materials in design.
- Plant native and edible species.
- Avoid heavy machines to reduce compaction when possible.
