Citylife Ecodesign is a landscape design and construction company dedicated to sustainability. We specialize in creating the perfect landscape for your home, business or small farm.

We are happily based in the city of Portland, Oregon and are a registered Oregon Benefit Company.

 

WHAT WE DO


Xeriscaping and Permeable Surfaces

Save water and look good with less lawn and more style! We build rock gardens, permeable surfaces and xeriscapes to create beautiful water-wise landscapes that allow for natural drainage and low water usage. If you’ve ever wanted a flagstone pathway or a lawn-free yard but didn’t know where to start, call us!

Gardens

Want to grow your own food but don’t know if you have the time or space? We design and install gardens that produce organic foods customized to your taste using modern high efficiency, low maintenance urban agriculture techniques. We also build and plant rain gardens, pollinator gardens, kitchen gardens, native plant gardens, flower gardens and more!

Habitat Enhancement 

We use a large variety of native plants in our landscapes to provide needed habitat and forage for pollinators and other urban fauna. We believe that we all have a shared responsibility to support the ecosystem that supports us. Let us turn your home into a biodiversity oasis!

Rainwater Harvesting and Efficient Irrigation

The average residential roof in Portland receives over 30,000 gallons of rainwater annually. Let us design your space to be efficiently green year round by capturing and utilizing rainwater to irrigate landscaping plants and crops. Our automated systems reduce your water bill and the impact your property has on the watershed.

Stormwater Utilization

Many cities, including Portland and Gresham, offer utility or cash incentives to disconnect downspouts and process stormwater onsite or to install a rain garden. Let us help you turn unused rainwater into a resource for beautiful landscape installations that grow food, preserve soil, enhance water quality and provide pollinator habitat.

ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION

Do you own eroding riverside property or fields full of invasive blackberries or scotchbroom? Do you have sections of lawn that flood all winter, or extra space to provide much needed pollinator habitat? We provide picture perfect solutions that restore difficult-to-mange landscapes to functioning native ecosystems.

Organic Yard Care

Mulch: Mulch plantings to suppress weed growth and help plants retain moisture during the hot months.

Fertilize: Adding a top dressing of compost or organic fertilizer in spring will help stimulate plant growth and add to the microbial health of the soil.

Hand pull invasive species: Hand pulling in spring can be an effective method of controlling many of Oregon’s harmful invasive species.
