At Edge of the Woods, we know which plants support birds, insects, pollinators, butterflies, and other wildlife, and we design landscapes that are visually pleasing and support the ecosystem. Our years of experience working with native plant landscapes gives us the expertise to evaluate your landscape and to make ecologically sound recommendations that meet your needs.
Our horticultural staff is highly educated and committed to sustainable landscape practices. We want to help you create a landscape that makes you happy and protects and enhances our ecosystem. Our talented landscape crew can plan and install the project, and perform maintenance services.
Whether you are a ‘do-it-yourself-er’ looking for guidance, or need design and installation, we can help.
We can create a landscape design, a concept drawing, a plant list, or a list of goals. Fee will vary depending on the needs and size of the project.
Creating new gardens and landscapes is our specialty, and provide estimates before we begin the work. Price depends on plant selection and scope of work.
