Where We Work


The Lake Country

We work in all sorts of environments, located all over the The Lake Country ecoregion, as determined by the EPA. The Lake Country spans over northeast Indiana, parts of northwest Ohio, and south central and southwest Michigan. According to the EPA:

“The Lake Country ecoregion is a hummocky and pitted morainal area characterized by many pothole lakes, ponds, marshes, bogs, and clear streams. The well-drained end moraines and kames once supported oak-hickory forests whereas wetter areas had beech forests or northern swamp forests; the very poorly-drained kettles had tamarack swamp, cattail-bulrush marshes, or sphagnum bogs. Today, marshes and woodland remain but corn, soybean, and livestock farming is dominant; recreational and residential developments commonly surround the lakes of Ecoregion 56a.” (

Current Work Area

Here is a map of the counties we are currently working in. Depending on the project, we are willing to travel outside these counties.

  1. Do you design for private yard change from grass to native field. I have a yard on Round lake IN. Half of the yard is fallow the other half grass, like the change grass to fallow field. I keep bees so like native plants the bees like. Let me know either way.

    Thanks for attention to this matter.
