Services

North Branch Natives offers a number of services to help make it easier than ever to include a native garden in your landscape. 

Planting Service

This option is great for those that have a garden bed all ready to go and that are looking for a foundational/matrix planting to set the stage. Cost is calculated by your garden's square feet ($7/SF all included) and plants are chosen from a select group that work well for your site conditions. This type of planting is meant to get you started, hold the space and to allow for enhancement plantings as desired each season. Choosing the right plants is an important first step in creating a garden brimming with beauty and function —let us do the work for you!
Here is a list of the species we will be working with this season.

Community Garden Design, Implementation and Education

We believe in transforming our environment into a home for many bees, butterflies and birds...and also into a place for kids (and adults) to explore and learn. Planning a community garden project and not sure where to start? Hoping to build a stewardship group to help care for your project, or to develop programming for your new outdoor classroom? We can partner with your group to tailor a design that offers all of this and more!

Garden Stewardship/Garden Together

Garden Stewardship can include garden editing, new plantings, seasonal tidy-ups and anything else needed to keep your garden fully functioning ecologically and aesthetically. 

The Garden Together hourly session can be used for on-site or virtual visits to garden along side you, to work through some garden planning, or to an answer questions. Want to learn from the experts? We love to partner with Chicago-area gardeners to teach sustainable gardening methods, design strategies and to share new ways to see and interact with our environment. 
Learn to garden in your garden. This is an hourly rate and great for those who:
  • Want to build a condo association garden community
  • Wish to care for a home garden
  • Want to host a garden party
  • Hope to start a school pollinator garden
  • Are interested in seeing their garden and landscape in a new way
Sessions can be monthly, weekly or bi-weekly and focus on the basics of native gardens and gardening for environment. After booking, we will contact you to schedule a day and time that works for you. Cost is $100/hr.
