Business Description LICHEN Ecological Design specializes in designing and installing landscapes that strengthen ecological functioning for the benefit of all species. We work with a range of projects scales from small medicinal gardens to master plans for large acreage properties. We use a “whole-system” approach to plan regenerative landscapes and create best-management strategies for the unique features of each property. We use organic gardening practices to convert lawns to meadows, improve soil health, and enhance habitat value within the landscape. We specialize in native gardens, cultivating tranquil spaces, re-wilding landscapes, and green burial design.
