Creating an Edible Landscape

Edible landscapes are incredibly exciting opportunity to increase the ecological and aesthetic value of any property. Also, they taste good! That’s why we at One Nature were thrilled to design and install an edible landscape at a local property in Beacon. The project includes raised agricultural beds surrounded by a meadow cattle fence that protects the plants while integrating the entire area into the landscape. We’ve also added fruit trees and shrubs in an arbor that includes native peaches, apples, blackberries, and raspberries. In the front of the property we installed an evergreen hedge composed of Northern White Cedars and Tamaracks. Lastly, we created a streetside planting strip containing witchhazels, bayberries, chokeberries, and an assortment of herbaceous wildflower species. The diverse mix of native plant species is not only ecologically beneficial, but will also ensure that the landscape has a vibrant feel throughout the year.
