You know that feeling you get when you come across a running brook? You hear the melodious rippling sounds of the water, catch a glimpse of the rays of the sun flashing upon the water's surface... a hummingbird flies above you and you breathe in the deep, musky smell of the wet earth surrounding you?
That is the kind of moment that makes you stop in your tracks, pause your busy life and silence all that nervous chatter in your head. That's the feeling of being right here, right now. That is the feeling that, even just for that moment, everything is right in the world.
Whether we are building a patio or planting a garden, our MISSION is to help create environments that will make these moments possible for you right in your backyard.
THAT is the reason why we are passionate landscapers.
Our goal is to help enhance:
a) your connection to nature
b) your enjoyment of your outdoor space, and
c) your ability to make a difference
How? Through the ecological design and installation of beautiful and functional outdoor spaces that include what is needed for a thriving ecosystem right here at home - diversified plantings, healthy soils, sources of clean fresh water - all elements that attract and provide shelter and food for wildlife and other beneficial organisms.
We believe that if everyone did one single thing to support biodiversity in their garden or to reduce their landscape's carbon footprint, the cumulative effect, not only on our environment as a whole but also in the overall quality of our own personal lives, would be tremendous.
Together, we can make a difference!

OUR CORE VALUES
SUSTAINABILITY As stewards of our natural heritage, we work to create habitats that support local ecosystems. We support the health of our environment and the health of our business, by being focused, lean and efficient.
PASSION We are hungry and driven to succeed at every level: as individuals, as a company, and on behalf of our clients. We have enthusiasm and are committed to the work we do.
INTEGRITY Being honest and showing integrity is the basis to all healthy relationships. The partnerships we build with one another as well as with our clients are based on reliability, and we strive to be trusted advisors.
IMPROVEMENT Our constant craving to reach higher highs is what moves us through every day and what gets us up in the morning. Without hard work and continuous growth, we, and the business, stagnate. That’s why we are task-driven, goal-oriented and focused on “what’s next”.
