Many of us seek out nature with camping trips, canoeing, even a simple walk in the local park or drive through the country. We are treated to a kaleidoscope of colors, textures, smells, and sounds that can only be found in the great outdoors. Then, we return home to communities void of all this beauty. But, it does not have to be this way. It is time to bring native plantings back into our home landscapes.
Although there are many benefits of native plantings - biodiversity and habitat, low maintenance once established, water conservation, reduction in pesticides and herbicides, natural beauty - many people think that native plantings are unsightly messes. However, a native planting simply replaces the foreign and hybrid plants typically used in landscaping with plants that are indigenous to the planting area. Like any other landscape planting, a good garden design will create a really spectacular backyard that can be the envy of all.
At Upstream Waters Landscape, we are passionate about bringing back the "living landscape" with native plantings. If you would like further information on the benefits and importance of a native plantings for the environment, as well as your backyard landscaping, visit the websites below.
