With Ecological (Green) Consulting the goal is to harmonize your landscape with the larger biotic community and ecosystem in the immediate and surrounding bioregion. Simply, it is natural design that works with, rather than against nature. We can increase visual aesthetics by using a lot of colorful wildflowers in the buffer strip along the people area. By incorporating a natural landscape approach, we can show the benefits of NSM (Natural Stormwater Management) BMP’s (Best Management Practices) and beautify the area at the same time. Education information in the form of signage, brochures, pamphlets, a website may be provided to help educate the public about the project, natural benefits and potential for other projects in your area. Other benefits of these BMP’s are to cool an area or reduce UHIE (urban heat island effect), reduce air pollution, replace lost habitat, create positive public image using ecologically friendly technologies, and improve the quality of life with Greenways/Open Space development.
Our goal is to design the premier and state of the art natural landscape that is integrated into a beautiful park-like setting. Traditional and native landscaping will blend to provide an inviting gateway to your site and surrounding community by foot, bike, car, or boat. Native wetlands and buffers will beautify the park space with colorful plants and flowers that improve water quality. Uplands will mimic the native ecosystems that once thrived in the region.
