The S.E.E.D. Approach

Seed approaches each project by observing the unique charateristics of each site as it interacts with the elements. Then, combining thoughtful observation with ecological principles, we create home and land use designs that perform in a multitude of beneficial ways.

Throghout your project this integrated design acts as a compass, insuring the least impact to the site, plus an efficient, economical completion.

Going further, we select building and landscape materials that are manufactured and transported in a manner to further lessen that impact. We see these steps not only as the best way to build healthy efficient green homes and the most beautiful productive landscapes, but more as imperative actions that we all must take to protect the planet and the future of our children.

We are proud of this committment, as well as the high quality and craftmanship of our work.
