We create remarkable places that improve the environment.

Our clients are trendsetting visionaries who want functional, aesthetic and environmental results. Using ecological knowledge, landscape engineering experience, and architectural principles, we are pioneering professionals who design and build research-backed, pragmatic and visually compelling places.


Why we do it

We believe in our ability as professionals to make a better future. Science has shown that landscape-scale intervention has the capacity to positively influence the environmental crisis. From inner cities to rural farmland, there is tremendous potential to regenerate, preserve and restore the earth. Results from our growing body of work have proved the effectiveness of our approach. 


Where we're working


Regenerative Design. We plan, design, and oversee construction of ecologically vibrant landscapes that have net positive environmental impacts.


Scientific Consulting. We work as field ecologists to monitor and evaluate landscapes of all types. Our scientists provide clear opinions and data that empower our clients to make land use decisions.


Landscape Construction. We build small to mid-sized landscapes in the Hudson Valley and beyond. We also support other constructors whose projects require technical expertise.
