    Install invasive plants, foreign grass mono-culture, apply harmful chemicals, fertilize unnecessarily, install negatively impactful non-permeable hardscapes, kill the animals & bugs you find gross, try to impress you with stock pictures we found online, etc (snoring)

    Our conscious environmental efforts take precedence. We will not participate in projects which negatively impact local habitats or the health of our watersheds.

    There are no such things as landscaping emergencies. Overbearing time constrictions and micromanaging can really take the fun out of a very enjoyable job. 


    • We care about your green space!
    • The numbers aren't motivational for us. The more clients we have the more people we get to help build & support the love for the natural world
    • We don't use harmful products or equipment just because it's faster
    • We don't bake sun sensitive plants in full sun just because you thought they would be cute.. trust us it wont be cute.. 
    • We plant for diversity and environment
    • We're not dog poop scooper uppers.. nor do we want to work in it
    • We don't sink trees in the ground burlap wrapped & then shrug our shoulders at you a year later when they're knocking on death's door
    • We maintain honest and forthcoming communication, which also means, we'll let you know what is realistic within your space

    Interior Plant Design

    Holiday Plants (Simple Holiday Arrangement)

    Let's face it, you need plants in your life. We design with indoor plants as well for commercial & residential spaces. This service includes lighting, potting, and customizing for full incorporation of natural-living art. Hydroponic walls and containers are a common choice as they are beautiful, easily customizable and less attractive to soil loving insects that can be a tad pesky inside. Most of these plants are tropical and must stay indoors comfortably at the same temperature ranges that you like. We can even provide edible & organic options for kitchens. Indoor plants are not subject to weather restrictions or wildlife browsing so we have a mass opportunity for creative possibilities.

    There's something incredible about living with plants, especially in Virginia where our temperatures can get quite chilly and many of our favorite plants disappear for the winter. Houseplants are especially important for the folks living in more urbanized areas with less outdoor space. Being around greenery can alleviate stress, anxiety and improve cognitive function. We find that routine care for indoor plants can assist in sparking new found interest in the "Green" world around you.

    Which plants should you pick? How much light do they need? How much water? Reach out to us and we will come out with mask and shoe protection, to evaluate your space, and provide viable plants in containers that go great with your place and your "Steeze".


    We're a small company & to complete designs, we have to be in the office which we're not in during certain times of the year. Depending on the time of year and the complexity of the design, it could take a week or it could take months. Our best turn-around time for design is in the winter and summer.

    Aquatic Design

    Planting aquatic plant roots (Planting native aquatic plant roots)

    With water we build habitat! We can design & install native ponds, vernal pools, and indoor native tanks. Keeping aquatic animals such as native fish & plants, is a great way to learn about them! Besides offering the many interesting & eye catching features of the exotic pet trade, they also help us understand local aquatic habitats, how our activities directly impact the ecology of our environment, & we get to enjoy seeing these beautiful plants and animals in a way that you can't view them in the wild.

    Re-wild Option

    Freshwater Mussel

    Our restocking program offers you the opportunity to re-wild (reintroduce native fish & plants back into the Potomac River to support the local eco system) seasonally or as they multiply. We are working with fresh water mussel host fish, which are the filters of the river & are threatened (likely to become endangered within the foreseeable future). This requires a special permit and may not be attempted individually. Participation in re-wilding costs $500 per year. Half of which will be donated to local environmental non-profit organizations & requires a monthly commitment to tank/pond maintenance, which is $150 per hour, (Usually only takes 1 hour) to assure that the fish & plants are healthy enough for restocking. A major benefit to participation is cleanliness in your tank or pond community, which can be very high maintenance to take care of on your own.

    Aquatic Plants Only

    Adding fish is of course, not a requirement. You could have a beautiful native aquatic plant community that is just as stunning. If outdoor, ponds will always attract wildlife no matter what.  Indoors, it could be the most attractive feature in your home.
