A few small changes in your landscape can make a big difference! Many of the projects we are proudest of are tiny suburban and city pocket gardens. With a few small tweaks it can be possible to add diversity to your garden, attract beneficial insects, and support song birds and pollinators.
Small Changes that Help the Ecosystem
We can help you with them from start to finish, or get you started so you can complete them on your own.
- Add a shrub border for flowers and berries
- Add flowering perennials or a grass garden for butterflies and bees
- Channel run off water into a small low maintenance rain garden
- Replace an invasive plant or shrub with a native
- Restore an existing garden bed using natives
- Add natives to an un-used, open space in your landscape
- Increase plant diversity of an existing landscape or garden bed
- Tie existing garden beds together visually and ecologically, unifying the appearance of the landscape and allowing passage of wildlife easily from one plant to the next
Small Projects that add Human Pleasure!
It doesn’t have to be ALL about the ecosystem, does it?
- Create mystery by adding a path through your landscape for a joyful walk.
- Add a cutting garden, or a shade tree garden with a quiet bench. Or just tuck a bench somewhere.
- Fill empty spaces with plants for less weeding.
- Add a splash of color with a few well-placed perennials or shrubs.
- Rejuvenate overgrown shrubs with expert pruning.
