Native & Edible Landscapes

Our team of skilled designers practice a holistic approach to Landscape Architecture. The design considerations in Permaculture lead us to focus on edible, useful, and pollinator friendly landscapes. Ones that use local stone, wood, seeds, and soil. We aim to capture water & nutrients and other resources on-site, and provide year round beauty & food for the inhabitants.

Native and Xeric Gardens

There are SO MANY plants in the West that can survive and thrive with minimal irrigation. These hardy plants often support pollinators and bloom throughout the seasons. Many of them also provide food for medicine for people. When left out through fall and winter, they can provide critical habitat and forage for  birds and bees. We like to design and install:

  • Native Flower gardens
