Prairie Works offers ecologically correct landscaping practices by promoting sustainable landscapes through the use of native plants. This style of landscape design reduces the need for consumables such as water, herbicides and fertilizers.
Our landscapes are locally and historically inspired and provide our clients with a greater sense of place when surrounded by native flora and materials which are found locally. We are dedicated to the promotion of native plants by utilizing their many benefits, such as deep root systems that give the plants the ability to withstand droughts and prevent erosion.
Native plants have the ability to filter rainwater, reduce maintenance costs, and utilize environmentally friendly landscape practices. Establishing landscapes that work within the natural processes of your site allows you to exemplify the colors and textures of Midwestern life, saving money and solving site difficulties. The use of native plants exemplifies Prairie Works’ systemic approach towards landscape design, build, and care.
Creating micro-ecosystems with native plants is a dynamic alternative to traditional landscaping practices. The use of native plants minimizes the need for herbicides, pesticides, and water while inviting a diverse collection of butterflies, insects, and birds into your garden. We employ ecological science practices by choosing to work with nature rather than against it.
We treat each project as a one of a kind expression of our client’s taste and lifestyle while striving to connect people to the local natural history.
