Landscape Design & Build

Our experience with native species and naturalized practices allows us to provide low maintenance, highly resilient landscape designs. Whether it is somewhere to entertain or a place of retreat, creating a beautiful and thoughtful design is the first step in your building your ideal outdoor space. Hidden Habitat will guide you through the design process from initial consultation through construction to ensure that the project meets your expectations.

Hidden Habitat’s services include:

  • Native plant and naturalized landscapes
  • Lawn alternatives and xeriscaping
  • Butterfly/Pollinator, song bird and habitat gardens
  • Rain gardens and rain water harvesting
  • Natural stonework and accent boulders
  • Seasonal garden maintenance, including spring & fall clean ups.
