Planting native wildflowers and grasses in your landscape increases the diversity and can lead to greater variety and abundance of wildlife on your property. Over 95% of our upland bird species feed their young exclusively on insects and spiders. If your landscape cannot provide the required quantities of insects and spiders, birds will not be able to successfully raise their young to the fledgling stage. Every caterpillar living on a host plant in your native planting increases the odds of your local birds being able to produce a new generation. Do you want more butterflies and birds? Do you want an increase in the wildlife in your landscape? Plant natives! Native plantings generally do not require fertilizer or insecticides. Natives will require little to no watering ONCE established. Additionally, the deep roots of many natives filter water as it flows through the soil. Many native species are quite beautiful and some are simply stunning. Native plants are available in a wide range of colors, textures, and sizes to suit your landscaping needs.
