We design and create California native plant restoration gardens that support wildlife in the urban environment.

WE BELIEVE that each garden can serve as an island for biodiversity - a landing place for birds, bees and butterflies.  With enough of these islands, we  create a corridor that supports life throughout the urban landscape.


Rebuild Support

Year after year, it's devastating.  We still for a third year offer free consultations for rebuilds.  We come out and talk to you about where to go next with your landscape. Partnering with the Resilient Landscape Coalition we are leading the way on a scientific look at what makes what we call a resilient landscape.  One that considers fire, drought and biodiversity.  Please email us to set up a site visit. info@habitatcorridorproject.org
