Ecological Planning and Design:

Parterre Ecological will engage in the planning and design for their unique restoration projects. With initial analysis of existing plant communities on your property, we develop Land Management Plans for initial Conservation Commission review, approval, and implementation. From native wetland restorations to wildflower meadows; We design native woodland, wetland, and wildflower meadows by graphically representing detailed planting plans to create inspired native plant communities.

Invasive Plant Management:

Parterre Ecological has a dedicated team that combines the most current industry standards with site specific requirements for effective invasive plant control. We will customize a program that identifies the relative abundance and distribution of the invasive plant population and determine the best methods of control. By integrating low-impact herbicide application treatments by licensed applicators over a phased timeline, the populations of invasive plant species are managed with least impact to the natural environment.

Native Plant Restoration:

Parterre Ecological seeks to identify and diversify the native plant community on your property. We analyze the presence, relative abundance, and distribution of the native plants species and look to find those that are inherently absent from the plant community due to invasive disruption. We look to restore an aesthetically interesting combination of custom grown native trees, shrubs, perennials, and seed blends to restore the natural area.

Stewardship and Maintenance:

Parterre Ecological recommends that any thoughtfully designed and newly planted landscape requires stewardship and maintenance. Parterre Ecological will assist you with maintaining natural areas on your property that require invasive plant management and native plant establishment, seasonal stewardship of a meadow, or maintenance of native gardens. Parterre Ecological provides expert and creative ideas to develop native gardens on your property.
