Most people never realize the vast potential in their home’s quarter-acre slice of land. Each spring, they do their best to cover as much of it as possible with grass and accent it with a few ornamental shrubs. Some attempt to cultivate a garden in the corner and faithfully dump fertilizers and pesticides over the bed just to keep it alive. Little do they know, their yards could be beautiful, edible ecosystems and forest gardens. Thrive Lot collaborates with homeowners to transform boring yards into beautiful landscapes that provide fresh foods for humans and sustainable homes for bees, butterflies, and birds.
Unlocking abundance in your home garden and yard
“Each year, people struggle with gardening and landscaping because they are fighting nature,” says Justin West, CEO of Thrive Lot. “Instead of non-native plants all lined up in rows, they could have a thriving habitat of fruit bushes, leafy herbs, flowering vines, root vegetables, edible mushrooms, butterflies, bees, and birds.”
People prop up their non-natural landscaping and raised garden beds with poisonous fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, but there is a better way. Indigenous knowledge has been handed down from generation to generation. This knowledge about the biodiversity of an area’s native plants and animals has the potential to transform tired garden projects into thriving ecosystems. Fortunately, these indigenous secrets have been safeguarded for hundreds of years and are ready to share.
Thrive Lot combines the diversity of an area’s native plants and animals to build the habitats nature intended. “When most people landscape yards and gardens, the ecosystem they design is based on bushes in the garden department, and vegetables in the grocery store,” explains West. “At Thrive Lot, we combine native plants to create an ecosystem that thrives without the struggle.”
