Our areas of focus

Natural Landscaping

 

Utilizing native perennials in landscaping is the wave of the future.  Native perennials provide a year after year base to any yard while providing habitat for songbirds, frogs, and other mosquito eaters.  Natives also work naturally to increase soil porosity and therefore, drainage.  Native WI perennials provide an array of heights (from a few inches to 8') as well as colors, bloomtimes, and textures.

Shoreline Landscaping

 

Why do most shoreline landowners own their properties?  The number one answer is the natural, scenic view.  There is a movement in the state to naturalize those over-manicured shorelines.  LJ Reas Environmental Consulting Corp. is a leader in this industry.

Bioengineering

 

LJ Reas is a leader in shoreline stabilization through bioengineering.  We've installed (or supervised the installation) thousands of feet of biolog around the State of Wisconsin.  We have also published a book entitled The Landowner's Guide to Controlling Erosion.  Vegetated biolog is a wonderful way to control shoreline erosion on low energy sites.
