Organic land care is a partnership agreement with Nature that avoids all synthetic chemicals and fertilizers in an attempt to work within the framework of Nature’s natural system. Organic land care strives to function within a landscape’s conditions as they exist, rather than changing those conditions to compel plants to grow where they are not suited. Plantscapes Organics focuses on caring for soil health to create a nourishing ecosystem where plants and beneficial microorganisms thrive and replenish the soil, empowering plants to be at their best.
Guiding principles of organic landscaping include “first, do no harm” and “right plant, right place.” These mean that one should first respect the environment and work with what’s already there, limiting site disturbances and choosing plants that will thrive in already-existing landscape conditions.
This organic thought process, put into practice, maximizes the inherent beauty of the landscape, encourages plantings to complement existing conditions and greatly reduces damage to the ecosystem. Approaching your property in this way – whether integrating a Westport native plant meadow or a Greenwich woodland garden, protecting wetlands or constructing infiltration swales with rain gardens – will minimize inputs, which over time saves money.The organic principles that guide Plantscapes Organics are based on the
NOFA Standards for Organic Land Care , the nation’s first written organic land care standards. These are updated annually and remain the best guiding principles for organic land care. Plantscapes Organics is accredited by the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA).
