Celebrating our 10th year of business

Creative, Cost Effective, & Sustainable

Our goal is to provide clients with creative, cost effective, sustainable solutions to BMP and landscaping designs. We are dedicated to developing new practices that will both protect Lake Tahoe and beautify properties at the same time. We design native landscaping solutions that reduce water consumption and the need for excessive fertilization, while accentuating the natural beauty of the Lake Tahoe region.  As a design/build firm we are equipped to produce BMP and landscaping designs that are approvable on paper, as well as feasible, functional and cost-effective to construct.

We specialize in the re-design of conventional BMP Retrofit designs in order to use green, low impact design. This process can greatly reduce the cost of construction for the property owner.
