Ecological Landscaping


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


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 the rainwater! These systems reduce your water bill and the impact your property has on the watershed.

greywater systems

Let us help you turn wasted greywater into a resource for beautiful landscape installations that irrigate plants and trees, grow food, preserve soil and provide pollinator habitat. We can design and install Laundry to Landscape (L2L) and Branched Drain greywater systems.

Gardens

Want to grow your own food or plant a rain garden but don’t know if you have the time or space? We design and install gardens customized to your taste using modern high efficiency, low maintenance techniques. We love to plant pollinator gardens, kitchen gardens, native plant gardens and flower gardens too!

patios, pathways and xeriscaping

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 patio or a lawn-free yard but didn’t know where to start, call us!

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!

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.

Maintenance and yard care

Leave the yard care to us! We can keep your space looking beautiful year round. Our methods help stimulate plant growth, increase the microbial health of the soil, remove weeds and eliminate invasive species.
