Sustainable Landscaping Company
While many companies talk about “Going Green,” FloraTerra Design Group performs water conservation, sustainable landscape improvements, recycling, and ecological waste reduction every day! Read our Environmental Responsibility Policy.
FloraTerra Design Group’s commercial landscape installation service focuses on creating sustainable landscapes that are cost-effective and resource-efficient. By choosing compatible plant alternatives that consume less water, older lawn or ground cover areas are converted to beautiful seasonally-flowering shrubs, trees, and ornamental grasses that are drought tolerant and resistant to insects and disease.
Smart Irrigation Controllers Save and Conserve
Ordinary irrigation systems cannot adjust to daily changing weather patterns. They generally over water your landscape, leaving you with expensive water bills and major property damage. Smart Irrigation Controllers save you water, money, and time by activating at specified intervals according to your landscape’s needs. Enjoy healthier landscapes while protecting the environment and reducing expensive water maintenance costs.
Our Smart water management is a green initiative with the fastest return on investment!

Water Wise Plants
Whether adding to your existing landscape or replacing your existing one, by choose Mediterranean or California native plants your landscape will thrive on less summer water. Native plants can create a colorful, interesting, and lush landscape that is well suited to the climates and soils found in our region. Let our tree, shrub and plant experts design your commercial, retail, HOA and medical location landscapes.
Mulch, Conserves Water
Mulch is often referred to as the “secret weapon” of water conservation in any region. By mulching, we maintain optimum moisture, suppress weeds, help protect a plants root system during incremental hot or cold weather, and provides exceptional curb appeal.

Green Waste Recycling
FloraTerra Design Group operates modern recycling mowers. Dry grass clippings that are finely mulched and spread evenly on a lawn’s surface return a significant amount of nutrients and moisture back to the soil. This reduces the amount of fertilizers and potential chemicals in run-off water. Properly mulched clippings dissipate quickly. This practice results in ecological waste reduction and helps conserve landfill space. When done correctly, the recycling of grass clippings does not result in a negative appearance of freshly mowed lawns.
Where feasible, appropriate tree and shrub trimmings are “chipped” and spread on specific surfaces as mulch. Recycled trimmings hold moisture, conserve water, and provide nutrients for soil tree’s and plants.
