Urban areas are unique habitats where large populations of humans build dense dwellings. As a result, urban areas have been significantly modified from their former natural state into what are known as urban ecosystems. Urban Ecosystems llc is a professional landscape design, construction, restoration, and landcare firm that is located in Portland, Oregon. We specialize in providing sustainable landscape solutions that help our clients maximize the land they occupy, while simultaneously nurturing and restoring it. We provide green solutions for the urban environment.
