Planting an area with native plants doesn’t only increase the curb appeal of the space, it provides various environmental benefits. Native plants can be used to rebuild habitats, mitigate global warming, and reverse erosion damage. Discover the role native plants play in your landscape, and how to choose the right ones for your property.
The Benefits of Native Plants
Native plants are indigenous to a specific region or area and are adapted to local conditions of moisture and seasonal temperatures. They may not be maintenance-free, but native plants require less fertilizer and care than non-native plants.
Since native plants are indigenous to a specific area, they attract more local wildlife than non-native plants as well. This is especially important for nature lovers, who enjoy the sight of local birds in their garden each morning. Keep in mind that native plants will also attract butterflies and other important pollinators that can have a positive effect on your landscape.
Selecting Native Plants
It’s not safe or wise to dig up plants from the wild. Not only can digging up native plants have a negative impact on the surrounding ecosystem, but it can endanger various species of local plant life. The best way to select plants for your landscape is to visit a local nursery that specializes in native plants, such as American Native Plants.
