|Sustainability Through Stewardship|
Ecotopes is setting the new standard for reducing the workload + resource cost of the Austin landscape, because our landscapes don't rely on chemical boosters, or rapid-fire mowers + blowers, but rather a deep understanding of plant life cycles, soil health + arriving at an appreciation for sustainable beauty. Our approach to the landscape strikes the balance between the tidy appearance we all like + the underlying ecological well-being that's required.
Living Good in The 'Naturehood'
Ecotopes' concept of the naturehood involve the remnants of natural systems still functioning among the city's streets. The overall color of boxwoods, bermuda grass + bamboo may well be green, but they might as well be made from cardboard to the degree they contribute to local ecosystems. The rules of the local landscape have changed, or rather reverted back, so now native biodiversity is the foundation to a successful landscape in Austin.
