Edible Landscaping

EDIBLE LANDSCAPING: WHAT WE DO

We specialize in Edible Landscaping which is an alternative to the conventional urban landscape. Many of our landscaping practices are humbly inspired by nature’s systems and ancient methods of gardening like food forests. 

We offer a modern twist on the food forest. This pairs high function with contemporary standards of beauty to create a garden that is bio-diverse, produces food, and creates essential habitat for beneficial birds and insects. The best reward of all is a pleasurable space you and others will enjoy for years to come.

FOOD FOREST TIME LAPSE

Watch this time lapse video to get a glimpse of the installation process. This is our modern take on the food forest which pairs high utility with contemporary standards of beauty. Winding paths add interest and allow more access to plant varieties within the beds.

WHAT IS A FOOD FOREST?

Food forests are an ancient method for food production that emulated the natural forest ecosystem. This type of design meant that the garden worked as a cohesive system, reducing labor and time needed to produce food.
