Restoring Roots Cooperative

Landscape Design

We founded Restoring Roots Cooperative in part because we believe that all people can benefit from building deeper connections with the land and with one another. By cultivating a close relationship with the earth and ecosystems that are an essential part of our daily life experience, we gain or re-learn those practices of self-sufficiency and tap into the well of peace, beauty and nature’s abundance that puts delicious fresh food on the table for us, our family and communities while simultaneously nourishing our soul.

Through the means of conscious landscaping, we facilitate experiences that support the restoration of collective spiritual and cultural roots within the land, nurture human relationships and re-imagine and re-build our food system and economic system at the same time. Read more

    … Well this is the first spring since the planting and we couldn't be more pleased. Karen is the woman I dealt with; she is knowledgeable and generous with her time and really wants her customers to be happy. I ran into her last week and she happily parked her car and took a look at our garden making suggestions and promising to come out and make sure the sprinkler system is working. There's a square of land on the side of the condo and I'm going to ask her to plant some herbs and possibly tomatoes. I wish I knew about them when I lived in Newton. I would have hired her in a heart beat. Restoring Roots is a collaborative so they don't gauge customers with out of this world prices the way a lot of larger landscape companies do. I recommend this company without hesitation.

    … Our realtor recommended Restoring Roots. From the first visit Karen was enthusiastic about the possibilities for our little space. She listened to our concerns and needs--one of the biggest concerns being that as new home owners facing a lot of projects, we wanted to consider a design plan that we could implement in stages. Karen came back to us with a detailed and comprehensive plan for our little space.

    After multiple negotiations with our condo association, we decided to move ahead with the patio construction in the fall and put the planting and construction of a sitting wall on hold until Spring.

    The bluestone patio was completed right before Thanksgiving. We are very impressed with the quality of the work and we think the patio looks great! We hope to have Restoring Roots back in the Spring for the next phase of the project.

    … Noah is very knowledgeable of different plants and flowers so conversation with him has always been very educational for us amateur gardeners. He has also been very accommodating from the consultation. He listened to our needs and concerns before coming up with a customized plan that fits our property and budget. …

    The installation was under a short deadline so that we can have our wish of throwing a post-wedding party in our yard. Noah, Cheryl, and Karen moved very efficiently and accomplished the project before the deadline and within budget. The project also includes post-installation maintenance as the first year is crucial for the garden to survive. We are very happy to find Restoring Roots and will definitely consider using them for future projects.
