Green Art was founded in 1995 and evolved as an innovative design and build landscaping company with now over two decades of experience, specializing in fine landscaping, the use of natural and traditional materials, East Asian gardening concepts, and the use of native plants and regional materials to promote sustainability and create habitat for insects, birds, and native plants. The business has recently changed to focus on design and consulting only, but maintains strong ties with excellent installation businesses in the seacoast area of NH and southern Maine.

Michael Baczewski

Michael Baczewski, New England Pollinator Gardens

New England Pollinator Gardens is an 100% organic restorative land care company. It is at the point of purchase that we have the power to make the greatest difference. For New England Pollinator Gardens this means only sourcing neonicotinoid free native plants, non-GMO seeds and OMRI listed products for our restorative land care projects. While there is a resurgence in “planting native” and a groundswell of interest in “planting for pollinators” it needs to be done right.
