Lawn and Garden Care

Integrated Landscapes

You want someone who cares about sustainable land care. We maintain native landscapes and habitats whether you have a small lawn or large perennial gardens.

Ecosystem Based Landscape Services

Independence

Healthy soil provides pathways for plants to communicate, provides vibrant environment for beneficial organisms to combat disease, and balances resources for plants to thrive, so they can do more for themselves.

 

Nutrition

It is amazing the difference between rich soil and dirt. Its not a matter of pumping more nutrients into the soil, rather caring for plants is about embracing complexity and a web of life that creates, transforms and transports necessary nutrients for the plants to thrive.

Good Looks

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but many of us share a common perspective. A bald spot, dead branch, struggling area or wilting leaves may be the downbeat of a thriving cycle of life, or it is evidence of an overstressed landscape. Context matters and a healthy environment lifts up those that are down and out.

Natural Systems

We don’t often think of the “land” around our house, but that land is constantly producing and working its way back towards its destiny as a Pennsylvania forest. We are intervening to balance the needs of human inhabitants and the thousands of species that co-depend on the health of our land.
