Our ecologically-centered design services are available to help you create a resilient landscape. We start all of our designs with an onsite consultation with one of our qualified designers to better understand and personalize your design needs. Our staff includes trained landscape designers and landscape architects experienced in creating a design that fits your ecological, aesthetic and maintenance goals. We provide design services for everything from a small raingarden that infiltrates runoff from your roof to larger commercial projects with multiple funding partners. Services we provide include:
Our specialty is raingarden installation, but we also install native plantings, stormwater pre-treatment structures and some hardscapes such as patios and walls. We communicate and collaborate with our clients at every step of the installation process. Our work is detail-oriented, our pricing is competitive, and we make sure to leave a job site cleaner than when we arrived.
As a mission-based nonprofit, we are invested in teaching our crew the green workforce skills to help them succeed at Metro Blooms and beyond. Our crews participate in job training and career-building events throughout the installation season.
We also install projects through programs that rely on partnerships with neighborhood associations, cities, watershed districts and others. These partnerships lower the cost and remove practical barriers to homeowners, businesses and others who want to, say, put in a raingarden or a native planting. These programs include Neighborhood of Raingardens, our work in affordable housing communities, and Boulevard Bioswales. Learn more on our Neighborhood Projects page.
