We are naturalists and educators empowering our clients to understand the potential of outdoor spaces.
Our practice is the transformation of space over time. In back yards or across acres, we harness a diverse array of tools and timing to create change, beauty and diversity.
We thought you and your crew really did a great job with the burn, we were impressed.
Thank you for helping us in our effort to restore the environment on our farm.
Our work is informed by hands-on stewardship in the natural communities of southern Michigan. From the designs we conceive to the landscapes we construct and maintain, our experience in the field inspires what we do. Our goal is to create and care for spaces in which our clients can cultivate their own personal connection to the outdoors.
Native plants are recognized as being in southern Michigan prior to European colonization. Time has rendered them well-adapted to the climate and soil, they need no fertilization and little water once established, and provide food and cover for a host of bird and insect species. The deep roots of native plants form pathways through which water re-enters the soil, slowing stormwater runoff and fixing carbon from the atmosphere.
