With the right garden design, you can use native plants to establish the landscape of your dreams!

One of the most common misconceptions about native plants is that they’re too wild to offer a clean, structural aesthetic to a landscape. According to those not versed in native plants, grasses tend to grow long and free while wildflowers struggle to make a visual impact. The truth, however, is that native plant gardens can provide bountiful beauty and visual appeal. With the right garden design, you can use native plants to establish the landscape of your dreams.

Evaluate Your Landscape

When choosing the right native plants, it isn’t always beneficial to select the first wildflower species you find. Evaluate your landscape and choose plants that will thrive in your specific microclimate. Does your yard receive a lot of sunlight, or is it shaded by a canopy of trees? Does your landscape slope downwards towards the waterfront or does it lie flat? Talk to the professional at American Native Plants about your property to decide which plants will be right for you.

Plan for the Seasons

Native plants bloom at different times of the year, and one flower that shines during the spring will remain dormant during the summer. Take the seasons of your property into consideration, and choose plants that will benefit your landscape depending on the time of year. Grasses can accentuate a winter landscape, while Black-Eyed Susans can add color to your spring and summer gardens.

Create a Focal Point

If you want to establish a focal point, plant similar plants in a group together. When they bloom together, they’ll create a visually stunning bouquet! Talk to the professional at American Native Plants about complimentary species, and arrange a color pattern that suits your landscape.
