Ecological Design Principles

BEAUTIFUL PLANTS FOR YOUR CLIMATE

Continental Tree and Land Care is founded on ecological design principles. This involves choosing appropriate plant species that are meant for our local climate, which require less water and maintenance as well as providing a habitat for birds and beneficial pollinators. Native plant species are carefully chosen for each unique landscape.

Ask how we can help you reduce pollutants from reaching our streams and oceans by incorporating design elements to minimize water runoff from your property. We are experts in rain gardens, permeable landscapes, downspout diversions, and harvesting rainwater.

We believe in keeping it local when it comes to the food we eat. An edible garden will bring you closer to your home as you change a non-productive backyard to a space abundant in delicious, organic food you and your family can enjoy.
