Why Choose Natures Image?
Natures Image stands behind our promises and our employees.
The way we treat employees is the way we treat our clients. Most of our employees — whether administrative, supervisors or field workers — have been with us for years. That’s despite the grueling nature of the field work and the dangers that can be encountered out in the wilderness, including bears, cougars and snakes.
Of the first two employees we hired in 1995, one remains with us; the other retired from the company in 2017.
Our field crews are trained and experienced in the identification, handling and care of hundreds of native plant species, including endangered and protected species. This field expertise is vital — it significantly reduces a project’s risk of incurring unexpected costs through damage or destruction of critical native species.
We own a full complement of heavy equipment used in the restoration process. We are also the only company with a seed imprinter we developed that works on slopes. With our specialized machinery, we can clear thousands of acres of the toughest growth.
Clients know us for putting quality projects together, completing our projects, doing quality work and being resourceful.
Each project is unique, and everything is custom. The goal is to create a functioning ecosystem with long-term sustainability — one that will thrive with as little human intervention as possible.
Natures Image delivers on:
We develop innovative solutions that accommodate your budget. Our overriding goal is to ensure that every dollar you spend generates maximum environmental benefit and overall project success.
We can meet your schedule, even if you’re behind. We’ve completed multiple projects that were signed off early — as much as two years before the five-year deadline for sustainability.

Exotic Weed Abatement
When Natures Image started working with San Diego National Wildlife Refuge, the vernal pool site was predominantly bare soil. We successfully controlled the exotic weed coverage, achieving no more than 10 percent of exotic annual weeds in the uplands and no more than 5 percent in the vernal pools.
This project consisted of 50 acres of mitigation, irrigation and plant establishment in Vista, California. Specific tasks included irrigation installation and maintenance, erosion control, weeding, soil imprinting, plant procurement, plant installation and plant establishment.

We bring patent pending and proprietary technologies to the table to deliver a process-driven compliance methodology that minimizes errors and facilitates successful project completion.
