  • Streambank, waterfront landscape design 

  • Homeowner education and problem solving for difficult sites

  • Contractor consulting: specifying and maintaining native plants, landscaping in natural areas, adapting to site conditions 

  • Sourcing difficult to find native plants and young trees and shrubs (available to contractors or homeowners)

  • Classes and lectures on: stream bank and waterfront plants, creative stormwater design, landscaping with sedges (carex spp), identifying and tackling invasive species, understanding and leveraging plant communities

Lizardtail emerged after owner, Sheryl Davies, found herself immersed in both the theory and practice of ecologic landscaping. A scientist with far too much excess energy and a passion for education, Sheryl left academia and focused her energy on educating and innovating in ecologic design.
