Vineyards & wineries
Native plants and natural landscapes are an underutilized feature of our vineyards and wineries. They are an integral part of the wine industry landscape. Woodlands, grasslands and riparian zones surround our vineyards, visitor centers and entrance roads. We proudly feature them in our photos.
The natural areas in your vineyard
Native plants and natural landscapes are an integral part of our vineyards and wineries. Woodlands, grasslands and riparian zones surround our vineyards, visitor centers and entrance roads. We proudly feature them in our photos. And yet, they are underutilized for their functional and commercial value.
Natural areas surrounding the vineyards and ground covers within the vine rows stop erosion, and can improve growing conditions and the quality of the grapes. They can create habitat for beneficial insects and microbes, making the vineyard more resilient.
Native landscapes create beautiful vistas for our visitors and can be an important part of their experience. Careful and knowledgeable management can preserve the views, while significantly reducing problems like noxious plants and wildfires.
Maximize native plants and natural areas
Our goal is to help you maximize the functional and aesthetic benefits of native plants and natural areas, while minimizing any potential negative impacts, and to do so at a reasonable cost.
We teach your staff to identify beneficial and harmful plants and by guiding the efforts of your maintenance crews. We help you increase the benefits and eliminate the deficits from your natural surroundings, all of this using your staff and your equipment.
You have the staff. We show you how.
