It's time to move away from toxic lawn care practices, and embrace truly diverse and organic ecological lawns! 

Ready for A Truly Sustainable lawn?


Regenerative Lawn Care

EcoLawns Atlanta is for Atlanta residents who want to maintain a meadow or a polyculture lawn with positive impact on the environment. We are thrilled to service your lawn using all electric equipment (zero emissions!), while also using all organic lawn care methods to build soil and support pollinators. 



Conventional lawn maintenance causes a lot of problems...

Did you know...


Conventionally managed lawns release roughly 4x more carbon than they sequester, according to a study published by University of California Irvine.


According to a 2015 EPA analysis, running a gas-powered leaf blower for 30 minutes releases the same amount of carbon as driving a pickup truck from Texas to Alaska! 


Lawns that don't have any flowering species are void of food sources for vital pollinators such as threatened native bees.


Approximately 85% of stormwater runs off of low-mown turf grass, which then doesn't replenish moisture in the soil, and means you need to irrigate more (which means more $$)!

We don’t use any chemicals.


We only use electric equipment.



HEre's our promise:

We manage lawn for diversified species, including broadleaf flowering plants, like clover.


We use organic amendments and natural fertilizers like compost tea.


We work with the seasons, and  have a proactive, ecological understanding of disease & pests.

How It Works

Schedule a quick call with us, so we can determine if we service your area yet, and hear more about your goals and site. From there, we can determine the best package. 

step #1: book a call

Your service package is based on the size of your lawn and goals, up to 4000SF. 

step #2: choose a package

Once you sign up for a package, you'll be asked to sign our service agreement and pay for your first month's service. Payments will automatically process monthly. Then, we begin!

step #3: begin service

All services are bi-weekly to help maintain the health of the soil, prevent erosion, and reduce or eliminate irrigation needs.

Monthly subscriptions renew automatically, and all services are a 12-month contract. No cancellation fee with at least 30-days notice. 

We organize our routes by neighborhood. If we don't yet service your neighborhood, get your neighbors onboard! 

If our roster is full, we'll add you to the waitlist and you'll be the first to know when we open our books again!

The first step is to book a call with our team, so we can hear more about your goals, location, and site, and determine the best package to fit your needs. This call will last about 15-20 minutes.

Shades of Green Permaculture is a regenerative landscape design, build and education firm located in Atlanta. We specialize in edible and ecological landscaping. EcoLawns Atlanta is a branch of Shades of Green Permaculture.

We are a certified B-Corp, and woman owned business. 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.
