Our mission is to design and build beautiful, multifunctional and sustainable outdoor spaces that draw you and your family outside to connect with nature. We strive to use ecological design and installation practices to create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces that include what is needed for a thriving ecosystem right here at home - diversified plantings, healthy soils, sources of clean fresh water - all elements that attract and provide shelter and food for wildlife and other beneficial organisms. Why? Because we believe that living well is connecting with nature.

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.
