Let us do the work.
We expertly plan, design, and project manage the installation of customized natural area landscapes that attract a wide diversity of life and that help bring peace and beauty to your property. We help you change your outdated, habitat-poor landscape into a natural area full of life and natural beauty. We design with local, native plants such as shrubs that have berries in the fall and winter, trees that turn brilliant red in the fall, and wildflowers that bloom all summer long. All of our plants are designed to support a large biodiversity of species, feed pollinators, and are selected for the site to grow-in on their own, eventually requiring limited maintenance and watering.
Unlike traditional gardens where aesthetics are prioritized, central to the habitat garden is its connection to a wider ecological web and the value it provides to the surrounding environment in the form of pollination, seed dispersal, nesting sites, biodiversity, carbon and water capture. You will have a beautiful outdoor space that will double as high-functioning habitat!
The first step is to schedule a free initial site visit with a PLAN it WILD landscape designer (as of now, we are only available to design and install gardens for businesses and residents located in the Hudson Valley & Westchester County).
If you decide to sign up for a habitat assessment, a PLAN it WILD naturalist will visit your site and perform a habitat assessment. A report of the habitat assessment is yours to keep.
A habitat assessment is recommended for every landscape design plan but may not be required; the designer will discuss options with you during the initial site visit.
The landscape design plan is informed by the assessment and may possibly involve a follow-up site visit by the landscape designer to confirm measurements, take photos, and verify anything that is unclear about the lay of the land.
The fee for the habitat assessment and for the landscape design varies by property and will be clearly presented to you before any work occurs.
If you would like the landscape design to be installed, an estimate is provided for the scope of work, and we work closely with our installer to build your dream garden!
