What We Do


Creating ecological landscapes that are regenerative and beautiful.

Often, when human and natural systems meet – conflict arises. We strive to find ecological solutions that not only solve those problems, but also create attractive natural landscapes.


Connecting people and nature through ecologically inspired design.

Dismantling long held notions that natives can only be “wild”, we explore the entire plant spectrum to find native solutions that are as aesthetically beautiful as they are ecologically functional.


Guiding the success and effectiveness of native plant communities.

Balancing design with nature’s intent takes a knowledgeable and invested staff. Ensuring the future success of complex plantings is our specialty. Let us work with you to bring out your landscape’s potential.


Spreading ecological stewardship through community engagement. 

We work with local organizations to educate and inspire the communities that we work in. From talks to demonstrations, our goal is showing the beauty, functionality, and philosophy behind ecological stewardships.

Runoff Control at PlexPod Kansas City

Down to Earth Services and our native nursery, Green Thumb Gardens, recently had the privilege of working with PlexPod Kansas City to add form and function to the landscape surrounding the beautifully renovated co-work space. Not only will it grow to be a lush, natural landscape - it serves a very important role in controlling water runoff from the parking lots.
