Native grasslands are the clear choice for environmental stewardship.

By using native species that are naturally adapted to your climatic and environmental conditions, we create long-lived, low maintenance, visually stunning ground cover for your site.

We customize each stand of native species so there is always vegetative cover on the land through the changing seasons. Certain native species are better suited to the cool, moist periods of spring and fall while others tolerate drier, hotter summer periods, staying green while turf and sod turns dormant and brown.

Deep roots help native grasses tolerate drought while improving water filtration into the soil. Certain native species can withstand seasonal flooding and inundation better than their non-native counterparts.

Once established, native grasslands are low maintenance. They need rejuvenation only once every five years. This means your maintenance costs will be lower over the long-term.

A stand of native grasses also creates stunning texture and vibrant colour in the landscape that changes and morphs with the passing seasons.
