Consultations - Predesign

We are well versed with planted-in-place, pre-grown as well as hybrid vegetative building systems. We offer consultation sessions to help advise, select & integrate the most site appropriate vegetative building and integrated water systems for your project.

Our consultation services range from site meetings to written reports depending on the complexity of the project. We have worked with architects, developers and private property owners to set the groundwork for fostering a green roof system that will achieve optimal performance when completed.
