Native plants are essential to the health of our waterways. They thrive in local soils and need minimal fertilizer or pesticides, so fewer nutrients and chemicals reach our waters. They also help to reduce soil run-off and provide food and nesting sites for local birds, mammaps, and other wildlife. Homeowners prefer native as they require little trimming, watering, or other maintenance.
