Eco Logic headquarters has an entirely native landscape that incorporates trees, shrubs, and herbaceous species. The tour will demonstrate the use of native species in traditional landscape beds. Eco logic also has a wetland wastewater treatment system and a storm water bioretention swale and basin. We will discuss plant selection and installation specifications for these naturalized applications.
