Native Plant Landscaping Directory
If you prefer not to DIY, you can find a professional to help you design, install, and manage your native landscape. We have put together a list of people who can help! Their work ranges from conventional landscape designs that incorporate native plants to ecological restoration of wild land. Find someone whose expertise is a good fit for your project, and clearly specify if you would like a landscape that is 100% native to your area.
The businesses below are sorted alphabetically and by region, though some accept work throughout the entire state and beyond. Listing on this directory does not equal an endorsement, and we were not compensated in any way for inclusion on the list. Businesses were selected for the list based on their self-reported experience installing fully native landscapes. If you have any recommendations to add, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
