Naturally Beautiful Solutions

Native Landscape Contractors partners with land owners and contractors to provide functional landscape solutions and restore natural beauty.

​​

At NLC, we prepare the land and install native plants and seed without shortcuts, using the highest quality flora from local, reliable sources. We employ a union labor force and provide benefits to our employees.
WHERE WE WORK​​
We convert high maintenance, low function, and chemically intensive landscapes to low maintenance, highly functional natural areas by offering solutions which have sustainable (LEED) components, such as natural stormwater basins, native prairie seedings, green roofs, bioswales, and rain gardens.
