Environmental stewardship and sustainable practices are essential elements of every project we take on, whether private or public. We believe that what we do now has tremendous impact on the future of our region and the earth. We create backyard habitat gardens to provide food and nesting sites for birds, butterflies and other creatures. We will also work on large-scale, collaborative team projectssuch as developing the ways in which people may more readily understand the issues and adaptations needed to address sea-level rise and engage with restored marshlands and horizontal levees through the design of educational signage, parking lots, plantings and pathways. Large or small, every garden and patch of earth makes a difference when it comes to creating diversity, fostering social resilience in a changing climate and with an uncertain future, and restoring the environment.
