Every year and every season we hear about weather records being broken. The increase in climate extremes and the strain being put on the earth’s resources is a worrying trend that cannot be ignored. Our garden takes its inspiration from the now classic documentary that exposed these concerns to a wide audience over 10 years ago and helped launch many more movies that explore both climate change and global consumption. Recent events around the word in which massive areas of land face drought and even the shutting of the water supply to a major city moved us to comment on those issues and create An Inconvenient Garden.

Given the nature – and natural aspect – of our business, Mountainhill Landscape is committed to continually striving to minimize the ecological impact of both our operations and the lasting designs we create.  Beyond simply the thousands of trees and plants we have installed over the years, moves towards paperless management systems, the avoidance of chemical pesticides, and a eye toward energy and water usage during our design process, we are committed to ongoing development of responsible and sustainable practices.
