Vision

Concepts intimately linked to biodiversity

Biodiversity is at the heart of our creative process, allowing us to develop environmentally conscious and smart projects. Our designs follow the basic principles of smart, sustainable development:

  • Improvement of quality of life
  • Human-scale project creation
  • Planting of native and edible plants
  • Diversification of plant species
  • Reduction of paved surfaces
  • Natural water filtration in soil
  • Preservation of natural areas


This approach allows us to guide our clients and show them that our yards, neighbourhoods and cities can be imagined in new ways.

 

Our dedication to our clients

Authenticity and dedication are at the core of our approach, allowing us to build close, trusting relationships with our clients. Listening to and understanding our clients’ needs is key for us, and we commit to checking in with our clients at each stage of the project to ensure that we deliver high quality results. Furthermore, we maintain strong two-way communication during all projects to guarantee client satisfaction and create unique designs tailored to our clients’ needs.
