About Inhabitech:


Creating green infrastructure solutions to manage excess stormwater and enhance your natural landscape — the sustainable way.

Functionally Innovative Landscapes

We design, build, and grow innovative Green Stormwater Infrastructure and ecological landscapes. Backed by two decades of green roof expertise, and a dedicated team of landscaping design and installation professionals, our sustainable solutions work to maximize the using of native vegetation and divert your excess stormwater while freeing you from the headache of managing your own project.

From pre-planning to post-install, we take care of everything to create beautiful, ecological landscapes that tread a little softer.


Ecological Landscaping

Creating Sustainable Communities Through Beautiful, Innovative Outdoor Spaces 

Inhabitect’s Mission

Inhabitect is a full-service firm devoted to designing, building, and growing all forms of living architecture in the places we inhabit, both on rooftops and at grade. Specializing in green stormwater infrastructure and ecological-minded landscaping, we pride ourselves on creating spaces that provide lasting environmental, social, and economic resiliency for our clients, collaborators, and community for generations to come. 

Our Story

Design for the places we dwell.

We were founded on the belief that our public and private landscapes, rooftops, and lakefronts are like canvases… Places for us to be creative in delivering nature-based solutions that are dynamic, eco-driven, and naturally resilient.

Over the years, we’ve gained a deep understanding of what goes into creating these spaces and places. It’s not only knowing how things function or which scientific technology to use to be most sustainable. It’s also realizing the crucial relationships between manufacturers, design professionals, contractors, and owners/developers that are needed to make an idea come to life. Knowing each aspect of the process — and having the experience in each — is what sets us apart.

Backed by our founder’s degree in Landscape Architecture and nearly 20 years of experience in the green roof industry, we’ve got a deep technical and logistical understanding of the design and construction process, in both carpentry and landscaping. By having a hand in every step of a project from start to finish, we bring the efficiencies and care that save you time, money, and hassle.

nate-inhabitech-683x1024Every job is different, but our intentions are always the same. We’re driven by a clear goal of educating our collaborators, providing our clients with environmentally, economically, and socially driven solutions, and implementing a more resilient approach to development. Through your sustainable project, you can help us build a stronger community.

We’re bringing a new meaning to ‘green.’
