Going Native: The Benefits of Using Native Plants

When starting a new landscape design, many customers begin looking into the benefits of the environment around them. The use of native plants is on the rise among landscapers and the benefits are hard to ignore.

As a local business, it’s important to present a good image to the neighborhood. If your landscape stands out, you attract more attention and get people through the door. If you use native plants to your advantage, you can set your business apart as a unique landmark in the neighborhood that embraces local culture.

Native plants celebrate your area and give local flair to your landscape. Let us help you paint that picture.


Plug and Play

The obvious advantage of native flora is their ease of installation and use. Local plants have already adapted to the local climate and are able to easily thrive throughout the year. Native plants will bloom brighter, last longer and stand out better.

In urban settings, a business can bring a taste of the local country to the city, allowing customers to enjoy the local beauty and make a mark in the neighborhood. Native plants also attract visitors like native birds and butterflies that already depend on them in their local ecosystem.


Reduced Costs

The savings are already built in with native plants. In general, native plants require no fertilizer, less water, fewer pesticides and little maintenance. Their adaptation to the local climate already makes them resistant to seasonal changes and allows them to thrive on the natural precipitation levels of your area.

In a way, it’s a set-it-and-forget-it kind of lawn. The plants may already be growing nearby anyway. It’s just a matter of cultivating them into a pleasing and attractive design.


Better for the Environment

Since a landscape encompassing native plants requires minimal maintenance, it contributes to a healthier environment by improving air and water quality. Again, it’s the adaptability that makes this possible. Local plants are already resistant to pest problems, thus, they don’t require the use of pesticides that can greatly harm air quality and stream into water supplies.
