Community Engagement

DCH offers a range of horticultural services to public and private entities to support our mission-driven work throughout the state of Delaware. Working with individuals, homeowner associations, local governments and nonprofits, and business and corporate partners, our staff offers consulting services to guide projects from beginning to end, including landscape concepts and design, plant sourcing, installation, maintenance, plant health assessment and more. Our contractual services perfectly align our staff’s extensive and broad horticultural experience with our goal to tackle challenging landscapes using ecologically-sound approaches to improve local ecosystems.

In order to complement and support private landscape businesses in our industry, we do not provide services for private residential landscapes but focus our work on public spaces and private commercial and nonprofit properties when appropriate.
