Using Native Plants

Using Native Plants

There are many reasons to use Native plants.  Native plants have all of these benefits:

  • They provide shelter for many local wildlife species.
  • They provide nectar for pollinators.
  • The native nuts, seeds and fruits provide food for the local wildlife.
  • Natives have better survivability and are hardier.
  • Lower maintenance.
  • They save water. Once established, natives require less water because they’re ideally suited to the local environment.
  • Less pesticides are needed.
  • You’ll have fun enjoying viewing more wildlife.
  • You will be supporting your local ecology.
  • Native plants are rarely invasive.
