Natural   Landscape   Solutions

Natural Landscape Solutions (NLS) was created and founded by Erik Bjornsen in 2004.  The vision for creating landscapes that sustain themselves through time using quality craftsmanship and sustainable products is still as strong as ever.

Erik comes from a background with a B.Sc. in Geography, Organic Land-care, Permaculture Design, Food-Forestry, Urban Homestead Design and Drafting and over 20 years of landscape construction.  He has been involved in updating knowledge and education through various organizations.  He has recently taken courses in; Green-roof design and construction, Rainwater harvesting as well as Solar installation, and is ready to meet our growing demands for these products and services.  Using science as a background and his need for being creative he is able to blend form, function and beauty in order to meet the needs of his clients and their landscapes.

Natural Landscape Solutions is ever changing and evolving to becoming more sustainable.  Presently Erik is striving to reduce the company's carbon footprint by working with an organization called Climate Smart. By reducing company waste removed from sites,  and reduction of fossil fuels consumed Natural Landscape Solutions will become a cleaner more responsible company.  We have moved towards battery operated gardening tools, that are cleaner, more quiet and less maintenance.  

Previous and present commitments include: S.O.U.L (Society for Organic Urban Land-care), Parks Canada, Sooke Slow Food Cycle, Sooke Transition Town and Tsartlip First Nations workshops in gardening and composting.

'Earth Care - People Care' is something true to the values of Natural Landscape Solutions.  We care about people and the environment and believe that by making people more aware of their surroundings they become more responsible for taking care of what's around them.
