We assess and build higher functioning, lower maintenance landscapes by designing and restoring landscapes that serve everyone.
In an ever-changing world where resource scarcity and urbanization create complex challenges, the need for resilient and sustainable ecosystems is increasingly apparent. Having access to high-quality, aesthetically pleasing, and functional landscapes provides a bevy of ecosystem services— some easy to measure and some not. A neighborhood park with native flowers and grasses that provide pollinator habitat, stormwater controls, and immeasurable stress relief also sources higher home values. But that doesn’t happen on its own. Creating multi-functional spaces requires deep ecological knowledge and experience in design, permitting, construction, and landscape maintenance. Matrix’s Ecological Services team works with municipal, state, and federal resource agencies, developers, oil and gas extractors, and other private businesses to navigate the complex path of regulation and ecosystem management to find cost-effective and viable solutions that balance societal needs and functionality.
Ecological Services focuses on ecosystem function, corridor restoration, planning, regulatory compliance, and improvement. Our expert team draws on strong technical backgrounds and years of experience in the public and private sectors to create, restore, and maintain native and climate-resilient vegetation communities and habitats. We evaluate native wildlife assemblages and corridors, survey special status species, and inform planning to limit human-wildlife conflict within the natural and built environments.
