While traditional landscapes are maintained; native landscapes natural areas are stewarded. Since 1988, Pizzo & Associates, Ltd. has been providing real, on-the-ground results through the age-old concept of Stewardship. Stewardship is defined as the routine action taken to sustain the aesthetic and ecological integrity of a restoration. This practice is the foundation of our company and is considered our highest priority.
By leading the industry in stewardship techniques, we have built our business around a standard of success. We believe that our stewardship is so effective that we provide an industry-leading guarantee on all installations stewarded by Pizzo & Associates, Ltd. If you have a site that is in need of restoration or a restored site that once again is in decline, we invite you to contact us to discuss the implementation of a stewardship plan at your property.
Once a natural area is created, restored, or enhanced, it must be stewarded in order to thrive. This process must begin immediately. If a natural area is not stewarded it will become overgrown with invasive and weedy species, which is detrimental to ecological integrity and will be aesthetically displeasing. The Stewardship process involves monitoring the vegetation and reacting to changes as they occur over a period of time. A Stewardship plan must be adaptive. Natural areas tend to change over time and as a result contractors must be able to recognize these changes and adapt their strategies accordingly.
