Ecological Landscapes and Gardens: Thicket Workshop

A plant-focused design firm, Thicket Workshop crafts ecological landscapes and gardens in Ithaca, NY, and across the region.

We work at a variety of scales—from reimagining a family’s front yard as a pollinator bonanza, to planting a savanna on a city lot, to developing a plan for biodiverse habitat hedgerows on a 50-acre farm.

A commitment to ecology and allowing other species to thrive shapes our work. Plants can offer solutions: for habitat, for storm water, for cooling, for erosion. We also aim to spark wonder, curiosity, and joy—connecting people and plants, at home and in public spaces.

We offer in-person and virtual consultations.

Property Damage Claims Experts

At ClaimsAdvisor, we help you take control of your property insurance claim. Insurance companies may try to minimize your claim’s value, but with our expertise, you can navigate the process, protect your rights, and maximize your settlements. Unfortunately, insurance companies often use “delay, deny, and defend” tactics to minimize property damage claims. Without public adjusters, claimants may face denials or underpayments, realizing their property’s value is lower than expected. We assist in preparing for a proper settlement.
