Services Overview

Prairie Restorations, Inc. is a full-service company, offering consultation, installation, and management services for all sizes of residential projects. When you contact us, we'll walk you through each step of our process, which includes:

  1. Consultation. We will connect you with one of our restorationists, who will listen to what you want and then construct a plan specific to your site and your needs. We'll deliver a comprehensive proposal that outlines the required work to deliver the results you're looking for.
  2. Installation. Once you approved the proposal, our crews will get to work preparing and installing your native landscape project. Our project manager will be on site to answer any questions you have during this process, and will walk through the project with you upon completion to ensure it meets your standards.
  3. Maintenance. It is critical during the first few years after installation that the site be maintained for invasive species. This ensures that the project has adequate time to get established. Your project manager will identify what the best next steps are and propose a plan for maintenance.

Native Plant Restorations

The experienced professionals at Prairie Restorations, Inc. can help you establish a native landscape on your property, whether you are looking to create a small native garden or restore several acres. By reducing the amount of turf-based landscaping and increasing the amount of native landscape, homeowners can help create habitats for endangered species and enjoy a low-maintenance landscape full of natural beauty right in their very own yards.

Wetland & Shoreline Restorations

Restoring native landscapes along lakeshores, ponds, streams, and rivers is a crucial part of protecting our aquatic ecosystems. Native plants have deep root systems which help prevent erosion, mitigate damage from flooding events, and filter drainage to help keep our lakes and rivers clean. We have a tremendous amount of experience with these types of projects and look forward to helping you.

Management Services

Native landscapes have lower costs than turf or traditional landscapes, making them not only beautiful but practical too. However, they do require maintenance to be their best. This is especially true during the establishment period, roughly the first three to five years for most projects. 


Even if we did not install your native landscape we are happy to evaluate your site and develop a management strategy. Please contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our management specialists.

Integrated Plant Management

During the growing season, our crews can visit your site on a regular basis to conduct the appropriate methods of control for unwanted non-native or invasive species such as buckthorn. By using a combination of techniques, including spot mowing, selective herbicide treatment, and hand weeding, our crews can discourage the growth of invasives while allowing the natives to flourish.

Prescribed Burning

Prescribed burning is an extremely useful tool in the management of many types of native landscapes. Many plant community types are fire-dependent and thrive when they are burned periodically. Proper planning, permitting, timing, safety, equipment, and implementation are all critical when conducting prescribed burns. Our staff has the experience, training, and equipment needed to conduct your burn safely and effectively.

Mowing

Although native landscapes do not need regular mowing like turf, mowing is a useful tool in maintaining native landscapes. Mowing in the dormant season can hasten the breakdown of biomass, and mowing during the first growing season can control annual weeds while the tiny native seedlings develop. We can provide mowing of projects of any size using flail mowers and other equipment that is designed to mulch plant material into fine pieces that break down quickly. Our state-of-the-art fleet of equipment is designed to handle any job, including mowing under delicate solar arrays!
