We bring the principles of good design, deep organic gardening and environmentally conscious practices to residential, civic and commercial spaces in Central Oklahoma. The landscapes we create are beautiful, chemical-free, low maintenance and water-wise homages to the elegance and diversity of the Oklahoma landscape. We pride ourselves on attention to detail, innovative ecological solutions, unique plants and friendly courteous staff. From design to installation to long-term maintenance, let us help you restore your patch of Eden.
After a 1997 season of working in an Organic kitchen garden in Oklahoma, Adam Sarmiento began applying Organic horticultural techniques to landscape gardening in 1998 with his Eco Lawn and Garden service in Eugene, Oregon. Over the next five years he continued to study landscape design, horticulture, organic agriculture, permaculture, edible landscaping, architecture, masonry and numerous other related ecologically appropriate skills. These studies included apprenticeships on Organic farms, many “green” workshops as part of the Eco Builders Guild, and a year long apprenticeship at the non profit Ecology Action Research Garden. During his apprenticeship at Ecology Action, Adam authored a booklet on small scale grain raising which can be purchased here. In 2002 Adam moved back to central Oklahoma and began offering his services as Eco Landscaping. Since then he has continued to refine the application of Organic/Natural growing methods and design concepts to landscapes and gardens around the region. He is continually striving to become more native to this place through the practice of seeking out under utilized native and local plants that have aesthetic, ecologoical and utilitarian merit. Adam is available for presentations, classes and workshops related to native plants and ecological gardening. His writings have been featured in Oklahoma Gardener and The Gaillardia. Adam is currently the Vice President of the Oklahoma Native Plant Society.
