Reclaiming Your Native Lands Benefits the Local Ecology
Our natural area restoration services turn back the time on your land. We try to recreate the way the land was before it was settled in the 1800s. Much of our land used to be prairie, so we do a lot of prairie restoration, planting native plants and controlling the invasive plants that don't belong in the prairie. We also are experienced in the preservation of native wetlands and woodlands. Our team uses advanced methods to restore native landscapes, including:
- pre-installation herbicide applications
- soil preparation
- seeding using different methods, such as hydroseeding, drill seeding, and broadcast seeding
- shrub and tree planting
- herbaceous plug planting
- selective herbicide applications
- prescribed burning
Our natural area restoration department began working over 30 years ago, and we have grown considerably since then, providing native habitat restoration and management in Highland Park, Illinois and nearby areas to:
- private landowners
- corporate properties
- county forest preserves
- park districts
- conservation districts
- governmental agencies
- many landscape designers and consultants
How can you join the natural area restoration movement? You don't need a large plot of land to restore native habitats. Consider the following options, and then contact us. We can help you make it happen.
- Native rain gardens. Enjoy watching native wildlife and insects flock to your native rain garden, and feel good about the other ecological benefits of the garden. They help filter runoff pollution, help eliminate standing water, and reduce mosquito breeding grounds.
- Bio-swales. These all-natural gutters filter large amounts of stormwater runoff. They are excellent at the edges of parking lots and roadways.
- Prescribed burning. Our qualified burn crew can help you manage your native lands with a prescribed burning. Not only does a prescribed burn control weedy species, it also helps promotes native species.
- Soil erosion and sediment control. Our years of experience in shoreline and stream bank stabilization has allowed us to build a portfolio of erosion solutions. From intensive shore armament projects to less invasive techniques, like brush mats and live stakes, we can find the right solution for your natural areas.
