mission statement

Earth Designs Cooperative is a landscape and garden design company that specializes in grounds and project management, design of hard and soft scapes, installation of gardens – both ornamental and edible, meadows and no mow lawns, natural screening, and custom stone work.

Our vision is to foster meaningful connections between people and plants through the creation of unique installations, woodland plantings, native meadows, and vegetable and medicinal gardens. Our work is infused with sustainable, eco-friendly and organic methods; we strive to care for every property and each plant with loving respect, maintaining the idea that creating a more sustainable planet rests in the hands of each of us doing our part.

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our work with the land and into our business structure. As a worker cooperative, we are making strides toward social change by securing financial equity and civic engagement for each of our worker-owners and directing our company toward creating a socially and environmentally conscious future. The worker cooperative model supports and strengthens the business, its workers, and the community, by creating fulfilling and financially sustainable jobs that inspire worker-owners to be invested in their work and socially & financially able to engage deeply with their community.

“Earth Designs arrived at our home and within two days transformed a weed infested ugly bank into an attractive easy to care for stone garden complete with ferns and grasses to soften the look. The staff was hardworking, efficient, and took care with other features of our property. If we have another project we need completed, we would not hesitate to hire them again. We continue to appreciate and enjoy the tremendous improvement in our yard!”
