Ecological sensibilities guide everything that we do.

At Helia, we delight in blending nature, science and art, inviting the mixing of strong lines, bold features and colors. We create landscape designs that illuminate native plants, foster ecosystems and craft traditional landscape elements into breathtaking panoramas. It is often the transitions between the wild and the domestic that we find most compelling in our designs.

We sight major features such as: driveways, homes, pools, ponds and wetland walks to maximize their existing natural features, combining more traditional features in the domestic zone with wild and edible landscaped areas. We highlight and cultivate the beautiful interplay between landowner and land.


One of our specialties is ecosystem restoration.

When restoring a historic garden or a forest ecosystem for a rare species; our team seeks to restore the landscape back to its splendor.  All ecological restorations have both a biological and an aesthetic component. Our portfolio includes both rare and common habitat restorations that have been demonstrated in:

  • Private Residences

  • Historic Gardens

  • Forest Ecosystems

  • Wetlands

  • Ponds & Streams

  • Wildflower Meadows
