Poolside ecosystem

Anastassia came to Thrive Lot with a big vision for creating a beautiful, diverse, and productive foodscape. We replaced her lawn with native plants and installed a fruit forest featuring mature Pineapple Guavas and Cherry Trees. Anastassia now shares her food abundance with neighbors while feeding bees and butterflies with healthy, pesticide-free plants.

Rural habitat

Doug bought a 2-acre property in rural Ohio and wanted to create a habitat that would attract a variety of wildlife, feed birds and butterflies, and produce an abundance of fruit and vegetables. Throughout the design process he made it clear that a pond, forest garden, pollinator habitat, and fire pit were top priorities. As you can see from the photos, he got exactly what he wanted.

Popular components installed in projects

Chicken coop

Enjoy fresh eggs daily with a high-quality, easy to maintain chicken coop! Plus, they also help to reduce food waste by eating kitchen scraps and insects.


Now that you have a lot of native flowers, get some bees to pollinate your plants and make the healthiest honey.

Mushroom shelter

Perhaps the most resilient and rewarding food to grow at home. A small shaded space can produce an abundance of delicious, fresh mushrooms.
