bay-friendly landscapes

Sustainable and Bay-Friendly landscapes require less maintenance and result in beautiful landscapes. A sustainable landscape is designed to be attractive and harmonious with its environment; requiring minimal resources. Sustainable landscapes protect your investment with environmentally-friendly and sound horticultural practices that are self-perpetuating over time.

Sustainable landscape practices provide increased plant health and longevity while benefiting soil structure and air quality. Gachina employs numerous Bay-Friendly professionals certifed through ReScape California. Sustainable practices stem from the 7 principles of Bay-Friendly Landscapes:

our sustainable practices include:

  • Landscape locally
  • Landscape for less to the landfill
  • Nurture the soil
  • Conserve water
  • Conserve energy
  • Protect water and air quality
  • Create wildlife habitat

Sustainable landscape practices include soil management, proper plant selection and resource conservation. The health and appearance of your plants are improved through better management of the earth’s most precious resource…water. Practices include:

  • Edible gardens
  • Sheet mulching
  • Natural pruning
  • Use of reclaimed water
  • Green roofs & bioswales
  • Turf removals (conversions)
  • Battery-operated equipment
  • Goat grazing for weed abatement
  • IPM – Integrated Pest Management
  • Deep-root watering and fertilization
  • Grass & leaf cycling (mulch mowing)
  • Beneficial insects & organic programs
  • Certified bee gardens & honey harvesting
  • Beneficial Insects
  • Installation of drought tolerant plant material
  • Certified butterfly, monarch & wildlife habitat

pollinators, green roofs & LEED certification

Our Sustainable Landscape Department partners with clients to install certified wildlife habitats, buttefly & monarch gardens, organic vegetable gardens and bee refuges. We promote pollinator friendly practices and offer 100% organic landscape services if preferred.

Planting green roofs have become a popular way to moderate climate change, develop biodiversity, help wildlife and reduce energy consumption by natural cooling. They provide rainwater filtration and benefit wildlife, birds and other pollinators. Sustainable green roofs maintained by Gachina are an exciting innovation that benefits building owners and the community. Gachina employs an Accredited Green Roof Professional on our senior management team.

LEED is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. LEED provides a framework to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. Gachina helps clients reach LEED Certification status with a LEED Green Associate on our senior management team.

Our employees practice sustainability by making environmentally responsible decisions to reduce our carbon footprint through conservation, efficient use or resources and minimizing pollution. We prevent the over-application of nutrients. No ammonia-based fertilizers, bio solid-based fertilizers, synthetic quick-release fertilizers, of “weed and feed” formulas.
