Can you imagine a home landscape that deeply nourishes your well-being AND improves the health of the natural world? Can you envision your patch of Earth becoming an edible sanctuary for your family AND a haven for wildlife?
Feel into it...to be immersed in natural beauty, to connect and give back to the Earth, to feel a sense of peace and place, to grow relationships with new, unique plants, and to not have to feel like its "work" to keep it together...
Native Foods Nursery offers consulting, design, installation, and maintenance services.
We can help you bring life back to your yard with any size landscaping project, including hardscapes and water features. Whether you just want to chat, need detailed design illustrations and planting guides, or want help installing and maintaining, we are here to help you get what you want out of your home landscape, and help your new native, edible plants thrive.
No matter where you live, we are happy to discuss native species, native plant combinations, yard and garden design design, planting strategies, native identification, or even just your love for native edibles. We certainly don’t know everything, but we’re happy to offer our two cents to help you take that next step along your gardening path.
We take inspiration from sustainable gardening movements and research, both old and new. In our design process, we utilize Permaculture principles, Forest Garden design, natural and organic gardening strategies, and nature-inspired aesthetics. We will work with you to create an edible landscape that serves your five senses as well as the integrity of the natural world.
Those who are less interested in edible plants, and more interested in landscape beauty and environmental sustainability are in luck too. Native edible plants in a well-designed landscape can be absolutely stunning, and offer unique environmental services (like filtering water run-off through rain gardens).
Native ornamental design tends to rely more on texture, leaf color, and plant form/shape to ground its artistic expression - instead of over-focusing on annual floral displays. We think this is much more interesting to the observant eye than the traditional landscaping approach.
Installation and Maintenance Services (for Oregonians)
You might be thinking to yourself, ”These are all great ideas, but I just don’t have the time to plant or maintain a garden this year.” We can help there, too. In addition to our consulting and design services, we can also plant and maintain your garden, too. We can do ponds, garden patios/gazebos, and hardscape features to integrate the human and natural elements. Give us a call!
