Hello and Welcome! My name is Rob Hodges and I'm the owner / operator of Naturescapes - Sustainable Landscape Solutions, a small landscaping business in the foothill community of Springville, situated in the central valley of California. I began Naturescapes in 2015, smack in the middle of the several-years-long drought that has had such a devastating impact on the lives and livelihoods of so many people in this region.
My focus as a landscaper is to encourage the removal of traditional, water-thirsty turf lawns, replacing them with natural mulches, drought-tolerant species of plants (natives, where possible and practicable), and landscaping features that are sustainable, that nourish and benefit pollinators of all kinds, and that provide homeowners and neighbors with aesthetically pleasing, low-maintenance, alternative landscape solutions.
If you're interested in making a change toward sustainability and water-wise planting in your landscape, feel free to contact me and set up a consultation! My contact information and current fee schedule is available on the Contact Page.
Feel free to browse my Galleries and give me some feedback or send me a question. I'd love to hear from you! Thanks!
In addition to my work as a landscape designer / installer, I am an active musician (cello and voice), composer, and collaborator with my wife, Catherine Abbey Hodges, a poet. If you'd like to learn more about our collaborative work, please visit our website: Lines and Measures.
