Where the Wild Things Are: Designing with Native Plants
Soil Scientist and Wetlands Ecologist
Designer Earth Tones Native Plant Nursery & Landscapes
There are few "wild" places left in New England. Most have been manipulated and, over time, the natural balance of our ecosystem has declined. As designers, we must observe the natural world around us and understand the dynamic role native plants play. Blend that knowledge with the landscape "goals" of our clients and we can all build aesthetically pleasing, ecologically balanced, and low maintenance landscapes.
