Creating Beautiful Spaces with Native Plantings
HBM Park Ridge Greens its Garden
Hobbs Brook Management is proud to announce it has recently renovated parts of its property to include native plantings, wild-life habitat, and sustainable features, while improving infrastructure and mitigating future flooding.
Landscaping measures taken include native plantings along the path from the parking lot to the employee entrance that not only provide a bird-friendly area, and qualify the property to be recognized as part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Certified Wildlife Habitat® program.
Globally, we are currently in the largest period of extinctions since the dinosaurs walked the earth. For humans, there are very tangible and unpleasant outcomes to loosing diversity of life on this planet. By rethinking how we relate to the landscapes we inhabit, important and positive changes can take place. The integration of native plants where typically only a handful of familiar non-native species are planted is one small and relatively easy step we can take to reclaim some of the symbiotic benefits of working with our native ecosystems.
We are thrilled to provide this beautiful garden for the pleasure of tenants and employees that not only fulfilled an important infrastructure requirement, but also incorporate sustainability into renovation plans that uphold Hobbs Brooks company mission.
