Why Native Plants?
Naturally beautiful! Native plants will add beauty to your garden. Not convinced?
Made for here! Native plants are adapted to local conditions. Planted in the right place, native plants need less water and other care than our non-native lawns.
Good for the Earth! Unlike non-native plants such as turfgrass, native plants support butterflies, birds and pollinators AND healthy water!
