WHY CERTIFY YOUR PROPERTY?
Some gardeners find that the certification process helps them set priorities when planning and developing their naturescaping projects. Others appreciate the checklist that reminds them of their future goals and what they have already achieved. The certification signs can explain your project to neighbours. Hopefully they will follow your example and create some habitat too!
Certification is based on lot size categories, and there are two levels within each category (Green and Gold). During the site assessment visit our Back to Our Roots representative will help determine which certification criteria best match your plans for your yard.
