passionately and creatively returning nature to landscapes large and small. From small artisanal and medicinal gardens to permaculture farms and wetland restorations we design and build restorative plant environments, regenerate ecological systems and support your health, nutrition, delight and comfort needs in the garden. We use the name, Design by Plants, because we are students of plants. Plant communities are elegant examples of abundance, efficiency and simplicity, realizing more than 500 million years of evolutionary intelligence. They help shape the principles and ideals of our firm's work. We are architects, landscape designers, horticulturalists, builders, farmers, artists, ethnobotanists, and gardeners with a mission to help us live more abundantly with nature while reducing our carbon footprint.
