Ethical and Ecological Pledge
At Dropseed Native Landscapes we care deeply about preserving the local ecology. This includes at the genetic level, where we strive to utilize plants of Long Island provenance in every project. This helps preserve the populations of native plants that are the most adapted to survival on Long Island, ensuring their genetic resilience persists into the modern world.
We also understand the importance of supporting other local, family-owned businesses. This is why we choose to purchase plants from small family nursery-growers right here on Long Island first, before looking to out of state sources. These are just a few of the many ways we are supporting local business, reducing shipping emissions, and preserving nature for future generations.
