Welcome to Creating Sustainable Landscapes
Landscapes can and must be functional and sustainable, as well as beautiful, because development and agriculture have eliminated vast tracts of habitat. Built landscapes can foster nature and serenity by supporting birds, pollinators, butterflies, and other wildlife by using plants native to our region. Native plants can tolerate sub-zero temperatures, summer heat, drought, and insect predation, all without ever needing to be watered, fertilized, and sprayed and thus are a more sustainable solution for present day landscaping.
Be Part of the Solution
In today’s world, with 95% of our land having been plowed, paved, or cut down, the frontlines of nature are now our front and backyards, school gardens, commercial properties, utility easements, parking lots, and road right-of-ways. Our plantings must now not just look good, but also do double duty to provide for pollinators, serve as a genetic reservoir for diversity, and clean our stormwater.
If you want to be part of the solution and do your part for nature by eliminating watering and chemicals, attracting myriad forms of beneficial wildlife including butterflies, hummingbirds, and pollinators, cleaning stormwater, and having a beautiful landscape, contact us.
