We offer a variety of customized services that will help restore the health and beauty of your property. We specialize in the following services:
Native Plant Installation: Native plants offer several benefits for your land. Due to the fact they have evolved to live in the climate, they require minimal care. Native plants are already accustomed to the amount of rainfall, soil type, area pests, and wildlife, which means that you will save on water, pesticides, and maintenance. Let our project managers choose the best plants for your property that will improve your property’s overall health. We offer live plant installation as well as seeding.
Stewardship/Maintenance: Oftentimes landowners struggle to keep their native plants thriving because non-native plants begin to takeover. Buckthorn, thistle, loosestrife, and teasel are all non-native plants that landowners constantly battle. Routine ecological maintenance is essential to prevent these invasive plants from crowding out the native species. We start our process by removing all of the non-native invaders through a combination of controlled burning, herbicide application, and mowing. With the help of our ongoing stewardship, we can help keep your native plants healthy and thriving.
Prescribed Burns: In our culture, we have a tendency to suppress fires which gives weeds and non-native plants the ability to take over our native grasses and reduce plant and animal diversity. Fire is one of the most effective invasive plant management tools available. Spring and fall are the primary seasons for burning. We will create a detailed burning plan for your land and then safely execute it. Controlled burns will help reduce invasive plants, restore necessary nutrients to the soil, and reduce the risk of uncontrolled fires in the future.
Erosion Management: Soil run-off can be a troublesome and dangerous problem. Buildings, roads, or over-crowded trees can change the natural water flow and plant growth of a bluff, hillside or ravine. Several things may seem like good solutions for soil run-off prevention, but nothing is more effective than erosion control plants to stabilize the soil. We will help you choose the best plants for your land to increase diversity and soil stabilization and to absorb chemical run-off.
Invasive Species Control and Management: Invasive species can pose a serious threat against the health of your land. Buckthorn and thistle are two of the most common species we deal with here at Tallgrass Restoration. These weeds can overcrowd and over-shade, preventing other native plants from growing. Let us help you reclaim your land from the grip of these invasive species.

Our experts will suggest native plants for your landscaping that have strong roots designed to soak up excess water and prevent flooding.
