EDIBLE LANDSCAPE     PRODUCTION GARDEN     RAIN GARDEN

Straight from your yard to your table, we create an ecologically dynamic environment in your new or existing garden. Sustainable garden design requires a holistic understanding of every part of your environment: climate, slopes, water, geology, soil, vegetation, forestry, land use history, scenic views, aesthetics, and more.

We prefer open-pollinated seedstock; often utilizing heirloom varieties propagated by our horticulturists on our own land.

We specialize in CA low-water use landscaping rebates. Through the use of native plants both for ornamental and edible uses, we create a landscape that is conducive to the seasonal rainfall and drought conditions that occur in California.

 

EDIBLE LANDSCAPES

Edible landscaping is the use of food-producing plants in your residential landscape.  It is the art of combining food-producing plants such as fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, and other ornamental plants into an aesthetically pleasing and varied design that coexists with new or existing hardscapes, water features and outdoor living areas.

Edible landscapes are great for small spaces and homes with strict HOA regulations on yard aesthetic.  Maximize your resources and minimize your footprint by seamlessly integrating beautiful, edible plants that will produce a bountiful, wholesome crop for you to enjoy!

 

PRODUCTION GARDENS

Production gardens take advantage of a designated space for the specific use of producing food crops.  Raised bed gardens, urban farm plots, and isolated in-ground beds allow you and/or our professionals to expertly manage your available space to sustainably produce healthful benefits for years to come.

Share the bounty from your garden with friends, make some extra cash, donate to a shelter, throw a Garden Party!  Once you and your friends taste naturally grown organic produce fresh from your garden instead of from a store, you’ll never want to shop for fruits and vegetables again!  A production garden is a resource for your family and your community.  You can create a tradition with seasonal heirloom fruits and vegetables and perennial crops that will provide you and all of your loved ones with fresh, organic, delicious produce.

 

RAIN GARDENS

A rain garden is a garden which takes advantage of rainfall and storm water runoff in its design and plant selection. It is a small garden which is designed to withstand the extremes of moisture and concentrations of nutrients that are found in storm water runoff. Rain gardens are ideally sited close to the source of the runoff and serve to slow the storm water as it travels downhill, giving the storm water more time to infiltrate the soil and less opportunity to cause erosion.

On the surface, a rain garden looks like any attractive garden: it may support a habitat for birds and butterflies, it may be a formal landscape, or it may be incorporated into a larger garden as a border or feature.
