The ALDER Vision

Every decision we make on the landscape has an impact on our environment. Whether designing a backyard garden or restoring a wetland, we harness the solutions provided by nature to create eye-catching landscapes that support biodiversity and are resilient to climate change.

 

Why the name ALDER?

Alder trees are some of the most resilient species in the Pacific Northwest. After a disturbance, they’re the first to return to the landscape to repair the soil and re-create the conditions that other species require to grow. They are the natural healers and workhorses of our ecosystems, making these trees the perfect mascot for our company.
