WILDSTEAD

Step 1          Consultation

The first step in working together is to commence a thorough consultation. In this consultation we will assess your goals, the land we'll be working with, any existing plants or particular challenges, and a desired timeframe.

Step 2          Plan

The second step is to create a detailed plan of action. Whether you are looking for a kitchen garden, native plant Wildscaping, "Rewilding" habitat restoration, or a full Wildstead design, we will create a unique design that fits seamlessly onto your land and matches your environment. Your unique design brief will share the vision and outline the proposed plan of action and budget.

Step 3          Installation

After approving the design and budget, we dive into the exciting phase of installation. Remember, creating a Wildstead is more than just a project - it's forming a bond with the land and its dwellers. This journey usually unfolds across multiple phases and seasons, reflecting the cyclical rhythm of nature. Our designs are crafted to shine throughout the year, so we consider an installation truly complete only after witnessing its full seasonal cycle.

Step 4 Earthcare Maintenance

As dedicated "Wildscapers", we're not landscapers - we're stewards of the Earth. We stray from the typical "install and forget" and "mow, blow, and go" approach. Instead, we minimize our visits to ensure your Wildstead flourishes naturally. Our approach is quiet too - we avoid noisy power tools like gas-powered leaf blowers. Regardless of your Wildstead's size, trust us to nurture your vegetable garden and keep your wildscapes vibrant through  mindful maintenance.

NEW:

Earthcare Management Service

      Embrace a refreshing shift in how you nurture your yard with our innovative property maintenance methods. Traditional landscaping, while convenient for service providers, doesn't always serve the best interests of homeowners or the environment. In fact, it often leads to detrimental effects.

     The usual practice of monoculture plantings, which frequently involve numerous invasive species, disrupts biodiversity. Moreover, routine removal of leaves and grass clippings depletes essential nutrients from the soil and harms overwintering wildlife. The heavy reliance on harsh chemicals and noisy, smoke-spewing machinery further escalates the environmental toll.

     Frequent disturbances to the land (and your eardrums) due to these practices are far from ideal. The conventional "mow, blow, and go" approach is outdated and unsustainable. It's high time we adopt more earth-friendly gardening practices that enrich our landscapes while caring for Earth.

By popular request, we are now offering Earthcare Management Services to our clients. Designed with the health of Earth in mind, we will provide the following:

  • Wildscaping maintenance (hand weeding, plant thinning, etc)

  • Ecolawn maintenance (organic soil regeneration fertilization service, electric mowing, etc)

  • Nutrient loop management (ie gentle leaf transference to designated areas)

  • Stewardship services (regular checks for the health of the property)

  • Invasive Species management (regular checks for and removal of invasive plants)

 

To receive these services, you must be an existing Wildscaping client (meaning that we've performed Wildscaping on your property) and the amount of grass lawn must be <8,000 sq feet. Contact us for more details.
