We are a regenerative landscape design, build and education firm located in Atlanta and serving the southeast.
Every outdoor space we create contributes to protecting biodiversity; growing food, medicine, and pollinator habitat; building soil, and restoring the water cycle. Your garden, no matter the size, can have a positive impact.
Most gardens are designed to be high input systems⏤water-intensive, chemically-dependent, and high maintenance. Instead of toxic, resource-heavy conventional landscapes, we build health from the ground up by transitioning landscapes to become ecologically-sound, healthy ones. Our work is to reconcile the human built environment and the natural world, creating a conversation between the two that is life-giving.
By building lasting relationships with our clients through our consult-design-build-caretaking process, we empower you to understand and interact with your landscape as you deepen your role as an environmental steward.
We are a values-driven company with purpose.
We are a woman-owned business, and a certified B Corporation.
We believe business is perfectly situated to actively solve many social and environmental problems and, in turn, redefine the concept of what a business is.

Working with Shades of Green has been a godsend for our family and our home. Brandy and her team have that rare combination of talent, creativity, and detail-orientation that makes great things happen. Our yard was a wreck, and they transformed it into an urban oasis. They are masters of their craft, have encyclopedic knowledge, and love what they do. Their crew is a joy to have around. Every step of the process from planning to execution was a delight. We are truly grateful to have found this wonderful company and to live in the beautiful, sweet-smelling, and tasty landscape they created for us."
