Embrace the Greenery

Are you looking to transform your yard or outdoor area into a beautiful space that you’ll enjoy through the seasons, while also creating a haven for local wildlife, supporting biodiversity, and contributing to the green beauty of the DC area? Look no further! Casey Trees is excited to announce that NOW is the time to put in your request and add an ecological garden to your yard.

Our program offers a variety of projects tailored to meet your environmental and aesthetic goals. From rain gardens and verge strip plantings to native plant and pollinator gardens, we specialize in creating lush, sustainable landscapes. Whether you dream of a lawn-free oasis, a shade garden, or a forested retreat, our team is here to turn your vision into reality. Some of the fee-based services we offer include:

Rain Gardens – Enhance water management on your property with a beautifully designed rain garden.

Example of a Verge Strip.

Native Plant and Pollinator Gardens – Cultivate a garden that not only beautifies your property but also provides essential resources for local insects and wildlife.

Lawn Replacement – Embrace a sustainable alternative to traditional lawns, saving water and supporting a more diverse ecosystem.

Shade & Forest Gardens – Create a cool, tranquil environment with plantings adapted to shaded areas.

Verge Strip Planting – Transform roadside areas into vibrant green spaces, contributing to the overall ecological health of the region.

Planting Plans for Bioretention Areas – Implement strategic planting to improve water quality and manage stormwater runoff.

Masterplans for Larger Properties – Develop comprehensive plans including tree, shrub, and perennial layers for expansive landscapes.

All the plants we use are native to the mid-Atlantic and specifically adapted to the DC area. By choosing Casey Trees, you’re not just creating a beautiful garden; you’re actively supporting the local ecosystem.

The cost for these transformative projects starts at a minimum of $1500. However, it’s essential to note that any profit generated from our Ecological Garden Program goes directly back into re-treeing DC and supporting our community programs. Your investment in a sustainable garden contributes to a greener, healthier, and more vibrant city. And remember – we plant trees for FREE! Separate from our Ecological Garden Program, our Residential Planting Program provides homeowners with free trees and installation, to add to the landscape of their homes.

Example of how detailed our garden plans are pre-installation.
