ArcheWild Services for Landscape Restoration and Project Management

ArcheWild offers turn-key landscape restoration services from designing the project to growing the plants to managing construction.  Our specialties are forest restoration, meadow building, effective green storm water features, and naturalistic landscaping.  Customers include private landowners, municipalities, and conservancies.

Private forest, corporate landscape, large residence, public park, family farm, wetland mitigation, and municipal planting projects are our areas of greatest experience.  Our success stems from thoroughly understanding which plant species a site can support and from knowing how to build/modify soils, adjust soil moisture profiles, and the use the effects of light/heat to make a degraded site come back to life.

Our landscape construction crews are true professionals, each with Bachelors’ or Masters’ degrees, and can manage a project to meet both budget and schedule requirements.

ArcheWild Services for Native Project Supply and Contract Growing

A cornerstone ArcheWild service is acting as a single-source supplier of native plants for large or complex planting projects.  Our account specialists work with your firm from the very beginning of your bidding process so that we can help assure that the plants you need will be ready on time in the size and quantities required.  You no longer need to coordinate with or follow-up with dozens of different nurseries to get your plants to your project site.

ArcheWild’s growing capacity continues to expand every year and our partner program further extends our capability.

From bareroot to plugs to containers to B&B, if ArcheWild cannot supply your project with a plant, it just isn’t being grown.

ArcheWild Services for the Classroom, Field Training, Seminars, and Tours

ArcheWild offers a variety of curriculum and venues for landscape architects, students, and conference attendees to quickly learn the fundamentals effects of soil, water, and light on which plants grow where and how stable plant communities form.  From shale and serpentine barrens, to high-elevation balds and swamps, to the coastal plan and secondary dunes, ArcheWild has the content and insights that professionals and citizen scientists are seeking.

Field trips often accompany, or follow, a training experience that helps reinforce key concepts.  Why does this plant grow at the bottom of the slope and not the top?  What is it about these hummocks that make a perfect habitat for that plant?  Why do these plants only occur in this particular habitat type?  What is the preferred habitat for this species?  Which plants grow together in this type of habitat?  These are the types of questions that get answered during field trips.

ArcheWild will occasionally organize a private trip for small groups that want to spend more than an afternoon in park.  3 to 7 days excursions with either motel or camping accommodations.  Call 855-752-6862 or write contact@archewild.com to discuss your needs with our Education Director.
