Natural Awakenings News: West Bloomfield Company Announces Landscape Design Program
Create a beautiful landscape

Natural Community Services (NCS), an ecological landscape design and restoration firm in southeast Michigan, is offering discounted survey, design, and invasive brush control September through February. This saves 20% on site visits, new landscape plan drawings and eradication of invasive and existing species from site to provide clean, weed-free beds for planting and seeding in spring.

“Invasive plants like buckthorn and Phragmites lower property values, reduce drainage and are fire hazards," explains John DeLisle, principal ecologist. "Invasive species consist of exotic, aggressively rooting and seed-dispersing plants such as Japanese knotweed, giant reed, reed canary grass, glossy and common buckthorn and autumn olive."

Control can include mechanical removal, prescribed burning and systemic, no- or low-toxicity chemical treatments, which translocate safely, and are most effectively moved to roots in winter. NCS then implements the native landscape 'revegetation’ design to grow habitat and flowers over areas once dominated by invaders.

"Forests, shores, meadows, lawns, hills and swales can all be converted to native plants (or wildflower seed, at even lower cost)," adds DeLisle, "that help you encourage pollinators and save you time and money managing your landscape in a more natural way.”
