Welcome to Designing With Plants!

The Earth is experiencing a tremendous amount of trauma due to urbanization, but we can reverse the ecological damage we are causing by reintegrating the natural habitat to our urban landscapes. Designing With Plants stems from the basic naturescaping principles of gardening with native plants to reduce carbon pollution, erosion, climate change, storm water runoff, and ecologically destructive weeds, while attracting native wildlife, pollinators and beneficial insects.

Designing With Plants offers planting plans that are affordable, low maintenance, environmentally responsible and beautiful for residential homes in the Portland, Oregon area, which include Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties.
