Integrated pest management is about least impacts. Integrated pest management thoughts and actions are driven by removing pests, it is a pest-first mindset. Integrated pest management is flat and one-dimensional approach.
Flywheel Ecology™ is a wholly new ecological restoration framework. Flywheel Ecology™ is “most benefits” not least impacts. Flywheel Ecology™ thoughts and actions are led by building resilient ecosystems not by killing pests, a whole new mindset. Flywheel ecology is three-dimensional in its approach to building resilient ecosystems.
Can you see the difference? Least impacts are still negative impacts. Flywheel Ecology™ is dramatically improving the situation. When you shift your mind from least impacts to most benefits, you'll approach the whole world with a whole new lens.
You do not lead your thoughts with killing invasive species. You lead your thoughts & your actions with bringing nature to life. You do this by utilizing the power of native plants, the power of nature.
Therefore, we call Flywheel Ecology™ practitioners “Native Plant Nuts” for good reason. We are passionate about building resilient ecosystems using native plants.

Leveraging knowledge and native plants to restore ecosystems. This approach allows for so many benefits including money savings, time savings, reductions in herbicide/pesticide use, and most importantly resilient and functional ecosystems. We are experts in it, we actually developed this system from over 20 years, from many varying restoration projects with vetted and input from many industry experts, both private and commercial sectors. Distilling the best restoration ecology techniques down into Flywheel Ecology.
The Flywheel Ecology™ system has 4 main components that when implemented, will build momentum in your flywheel. Turn upon turn of the flywheel you build momentum until it has so much built energy your ecosystem is unstoppable.
Our mission is to restore thriving ecosystems. We want our wholesale partners to be 100% successful in that mission so we offer phone Flywheel Ecology™ consultations for free to our wholesale partners.
Schedule a free phone consultation so that we can get mother nature working for you!

We have partnered with the IPM Institute of North America, a non-profit formed to focus on improving sustainability in communities. Through their Lawn + Land Forum we developed a program for natural areas to aid in management. Click here to see the resources the team developed.
