What’s ecological landscape design?
An ecological landscape design is not just about making your yard pretty. It takes a holistic view of the site and looks at how everything — the sunlight, the soil, the water, the plant and human life — work together and then seeks to maximize the beneficial, mutually supportive relationships. Among some of the benefits of an ecological landscape design are:
• Improved water management: managing both excess rain and drought • Building healthy soil and increase soil fertility • Balancing natural systems • Attracting and feeding pollinators and other beneficial insects • Producing more food close to where you live • Reducing your energy usage • Sequestering more carbon in your soil • Creating a beautiful landscape that reflects who you are and allows you to connect more deeply with where you live
