    • Our crew is experienced at maintaining the full spectrum of native landscape projects

  • Custom seed collecting
    • If your project requires site-sourced seed, we can collect and process this seed for you. It is important to note that the window of opportunity to collect any given species is usually only a couple of weeks so please plan ahead.

 

  • Custom growing
    • We frequently grow orders to meet specific project requirements. We can utilize seed provided to us or seed we collected. Timing is the most important factor. Although it may only take 6-8 weeks to produce some of the faster growing species from seed, there is only one opportunity a year to collect seed — therefore it is critical that you plan ahead.
