Prairie and Wetland Restoration

Diverse prairie and wetlands beautify the landscape with wildflowers, and provide precious habitat for pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. They also reduce mowing and turf management expenses, curtail soil erosion, and improve water quality. Though once abundant throughout Iowa, less than one tenth of one percent of native, remnant prairie remains today. We can help you recognize and revive a remnant, or guide a successful reconstruction on your land.

We loved working with Luke! He took an overview of our twenty-seven acres of prairie and woodland, dividing it into five distinct areas. He helped us identify our overall goals and then make a plan for addressing one of the areas. We look forward to accomplishing the goals in that area and then meeting with Luke again to see what's next! Luke is full of knowledge, shares it well, and is great fun to work with!
