The following target principles are the focus of EcoLandscaper advanced education and training:
Landscape locally, and create and protect wildlife habitats to help keep landscapes healthy. Landscaping in harmony with the natural conditions
of our watersheds. Landscapes for less to the landfill by less pruning, reducing waste and recycling materials.

Nurturing healthy soils while reducing fertilizer use.

Conserving water, energy and topsoil.
Reducing stormwater runoff.

Using integrated pest management to minimize
chemical use and create wildlife habitats.

Business and Marketing

Diversify services and communicate your eco-friendly landscaping practices to clients and employers.

A well-designed and maintained River-Friendly landscape can cost less to maintain in the long run by consuming fewer resources. For public spaces, River-Friendly landscapes embody community values for health, wildlife and the environment.

For private property, River-Friendly landscaping addresses issues that your clients care about, such as less maintenance and decreased water usage, as well as increased environmental benefits. It can lead to increased customer satisfaction and referrals to new clients.

As a landscape professional you can be proactive. You can be part of the environmental solution rather than waiting for more severe water conservation and pollution controls that are increasingly likely with our growing population.
