The Method

8 Principles of ReScape

  • Act Local

    Install & maintain landscapes that work cohesively with the native environment & pay mind to: climate, plants, habitats & natural features that require fewer inputs and conserve more resources than conventional landscapes.
  • Reduce Waste

    Avoid generating waste in the first place. Avoid invasive plant species. We recycle, compost, mulch, grasscycle 100% of our plant debris.
  • Nurture Soil

    Improving soil health encourages a thriving community–a food web of microorganisms, worms and other beneficials. Living soil ecosystems can filter pollution, store water, provide plant nutrients, & sequester carbon.
  • Sequester Carbon

    An important strategy to slow or reverse atmospheric CO2 pollution and address climate change, we use healthy plants and soil to remove CO2 from the air and store it as soil carbon.
  • Save Water

    Create drought resistant soils with compost & mulch, choose CA natives/drought tolerant plants, use stormwater/greywater/recycled water if possible, install efficient irrigation that uses smart controllers & flow sensors.
  • Conserve Energy

    Reduce the need for mowing with turf renovations, shade buildings and paved areas to reduce the Heat Island Effect. Buy supplies from local businesses & nurseries.
  • Protect Water & Air

    Maximize permeable surfaces, minimize stormwater runoff, use integrated pest management & avoid synthetic pesticides & overuse of fertilizers. Reduce your fossil fuel consumption by switching to electric & plant trees to remove CO2 and absorb pollutants.
  • Create Habitat

    By using native plants and increasing plant diversity, we can provide food, water, & shelter for native pollinators and beneficial insects. This helps to conserve precious wildlife and restore damaged bionetworks.
