If you would like to have your yard certified as a Native Plant Habitat, check out the requirements below.  If your yard meets the criteria send us an E-mail and we will be happy to come out, check out your yard, and provide a certification sign for you to display with pride.
(Certification signs cost $25.00)

If your yard does not meet the criteria we would love to provide a design to get you certified.  We can also provide an estimate for the installation if desired.
