Native Landscape Design

At Dana Designs we focus on creating sustainable and environmentally responsible greenspaces that meet your landscape use requirements and garden aesthetics. We focus on native species selections that will thrive in your micro-climate and soil conditions. These considerations are especially important close to Rhode Island’s shoreline landscapes where a difference of a couple hundred yards, sometimes even a couple of yards, can result in radically different growing conditions. Our plant selections and environmentally sensible growing strategies will result in a hardier landscape for you with reduced maintenance costs and fewer chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Your landscape will become a habitat for beneficial butterflies, insects and birds.

We believe that organic design is a process, an interaction between your aesthetic and use preferences and our knowledge of the local flora, all with an eye to appropriate construction investment and maintenance cost. We work with you to create an ideal interaction between your living space and your natural environment.
