Native landscaping is an eco-friendly technique utilized by gardeners. It involves using native plants to reduce water usage, improve backyard water drainage, and protect the environment. Native plants, such as plants grown in North America before European settlement (almanac), are common flora found in the wild, such as trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, ferns, and grasses (almanac).
Native landscaping preserves the surrounding ecosystem, improving biodiversity by creating a safe habitat for bees, birds, and butterflies. With deep root systems, native plants are great for water drainage by breaking up the soil and allowing for higher volumes of rainwater to drain into the ground. Lastly, by being native to the environment, native plants require less water use to sustain themselves in addition to withstanding and adapting to seasonal conditions.
