Welcome to


"The landscapes that surround us are critical parts of the ecosystems that sustain us. Our goal is to create landscapes that are not only beautiful but enhance, not destroy our local ecosystems. The way we landscape today will influence what life looks like tomorrow."

Who we are.

At Native Roots, our mission is to take care of you and take care of your landscape; meanwhile, taking care of the future. We use zero emission small engines + environmentally responsible products. Our goal is to impact the environment in a positive way while creating an environment for you to play in, entertain + be inspired by. 

Founded by Cincinnati native Ben Necessary, Ben's 20+ years of experience began with his degree in horticulture from the University of Kentucky. He started one of Cincinnati's first organic landscape companies, grew and propagated plants in Hawaii, and spent 10 years with The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden supervising garden + exhibit installations. Now he and his crew of certified arborists are committed to providing a unique service with sustainable and customized landscape designs.

Our goal is not only to create beautiful landscapes, but to improve the way we live. We are passionate about people and spaces, and we always design with functionality in mind.
