What is Landscape Restoration?

Landscape restoration is an effective method of improving runoff quality and reducing runoff volume. It entails converting an existing maintained area (forests, meadows, beaches, lawns, etc.) into a native vegetative cover. Landscape restoration typically occurs through re-planting and re-vegetation, followed by consistent maintenance of the landscape as it matures and thrives. Restoration may involve an entire property or may only consist of small portions of an area or plot of land.

Why are Native Plants Essential?

The process of landscape restoration requires the careful selection of vegetation that does not require fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Further, it’s important to choose plants that are native to the area and favorable to local pollinators and other wildlife. Native species typically possess stronger and denser root and stem systems, generating less runoff and minimizing the use of pesticides and other dangerous chemicals.
