who we are
Stocking Savvy, LLC is a small environmental consulting business providing a wide variety of services to Florida's ecosystems. Our owner, Sean Patton, worked as an aquatic biologist before starting his own business in sunny Sarasota. During this time, he found that many of the precious wetlands, ponds, and lakes that characterize Florida ecosystems were in a terrible state. Litter, invasive plants, pest insects, and harmful nutrient loads drowned out the native flora and fauna which make these landscapes so exceptional. Chemical controls were found to help these problems, but not solve them at their root. More often than not, these traditional methods exacerbated other environmental issues and ultimately lost their effectiveness as they continued to be indiscriminately applied. Inspired to restore these ecosystems in a sustainable way, he began researching alternatives means of controlling and removing invasive species and returning native plants and wildlife to their natural habitats. Thus, Stocking Savvy was born. We use multimodal biological controls to help keep Florida ecosystems beautiful and healthy, restoring those that have been lost and remedying the downstream problems that plague Florida's bays, estuaries, and beautiful oceans. We start at the yard and community level and work our way to your water body, helping restore habitat everywhere. No yard is too small, no community too large — if you want to help preserve the flora and fauna that call the Sunshine State their home while fighting Red Tide and climate change, you want Stocking Savvy.
