Edible Landscaping

Edible Landscaping

ed·i·ble

adjective
- fit to be eaten (often used to contrast with unpalatable or poisonous examples).

land·scape

noun
- all the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.

That's right, landscaping, but with food plants! Edible landscapes can be highly rewarding and provide a great opportunity for a lifestyle shift. With an edible landscape, you'll be encouraged to spend more time outside, harvesting, processing and snacking. With the help of our sub-contractor network, we offer full-service landscaping from concept to completion to maintenance.

Our Edible Landscapes

Take a look at some of the beautiful edible landscapes we've designed. 

Superfoods

Focusing on high value, nutrient-dense fruits like goji-berries is a great strategy.

Ferro cement garden beds

Reinforced concrete beds can take many creative forms and last for decades!

Your own harvest

Grow you own flowers, food, teas and medicines.

Resiliency

As food prices continue to rise, you'll be ready with healthy soil and food plants in the ground!

Full service edible landscaping

Growing food can be beautiful

And increase your property value too!

Wicking Beds

Wicking beds have 100-150L water reservoir underneath the growing medium and have several 'wicking baskets' that provide a hydrolic bridge. What does that mean? It means that you can go over a week without watering your tomatos, even in a major heat wave!

For Your Property

We know that landscaping can substantially increase property values. Landscaping while adhering to natural patterns also significantly increases a property's health. Your land will transform into a vibrant haven for song birds, a sanctuary for bees, and a refuge from the hectic world most of us live in day-to-day.

For Your Community

Nothing brings a community together quite like food! Creating an edible landscape is the perfect way to give back to your community, bringing joy to those who see it. Your neighbors will appreciate a beautiful and well kept foodscape, and the whole community will benefit from the care put into your property.

Healthy and Vibrant communities start in your own yard.
