Beautiful, Functional and Kind to the Earth

Good-Natured Landscapes  believes true beauty in a landscape comes from the landscape’s appearance, functionality, and the benefits the landscape provides to all things sharing the Earth. We design landscapes for true beauty by integrating local ecology, native plants, sustainable landscaping practices, garden artistry, and listening to your needs and wants.
