Verdigrow Limited specializes in conservation, ecological landscaping projects, and waste management, in both private and commercial properties.
We are dedicated to restoring urban and suburban spaces to more productive use. The blank green slates that have come to typify residential and commercial properties are not sustainable. Lawn care wastes precious fuel, water, time, money, and land. By restoring native plants to some of these spaces, we can reduce that waste while enhancing urban biodiversity by providing food and habitat for increasingly threatened wildlife.
Every site and every project is unique. We assess the soil, light, moisture and usage conditions specific to your site, listen to what your goals for the area are, and develop a solution with you that fulfills your needs while enhancing the local ecology.
Verdigrow Ltd specializes in:
- Developing landscapes of truly locally native plant communities that attract birds, bees, and other pollinators.
- Storm water control solutions
- Native plant sourcing
- Presentations about native plants, invasive species, and urban biodiversity
- Technical report writing and editing
- Assistance in dealing with over zealous or ill-informed bylaw officers targeting residential yards
- Advising on maintenance and restoration of native plant gardens
- Waste minimization audits

Our goal is to create a unified network of people putting their land to productive use…not profit. Please join us in Linking landscapes together to grow a more ecological world.
