Just because a landscape is green, it does not mean it is healthy or sustainable. Landscapes not only beautify our cities and suburbs, they also impact the local and global ecosystem. The sustainable design, development and maintenance of a landscape requires an understanding of the biology of plants, soils and the environment in order to maximize the benefits and beauty that landscapes can provide.
To develop a sustainable landscape, you must have an understanding of natural systems and processes. Bartlett's arborists can help in providing resource inventories, identifying and managing invasive, exotic vegetation and developing/implementing a plan for protection of existing plants and soils. For the long-term, our arborists can also help develop effective sustainable management programs including prescription soil management and Integrated Pest Management programs. These types of programs are designed to maintain landscape plant health while protecting the natural environment.
