Native plants are beneficial and they play a pivotal role in both green landscape and landscape restoration. When used properly, they help break down pollutants, prevent erosion, provide food & habitat for native wildlife, reduce the urban heat island effect, and help rainwater deeply infiltrate.
Native plants generally need less replacing. They've evolved to grow on our soil and are much better at handling our weather extremes. When properly executed, they maximize perceived values while minimizing the impact on your wallet and environment.
Once established, native plants generally can take care of themselves and survive solely on naturally occurring rainfall. Some have extensive, deep root systems that can easily penetrate our soil, helping water infiltrate and sustain them in prolonged droughts.
Native plants provide the best shelter and food for native wildlife, because the region’s plants and animals have co-developed interrelationships over thousands of years. They serve an essential role in sustaining migratory animals, such as birds and butterflies on their annual migrations, providing necessary shelter and food in winter and early spring.
Native plants help lower air temperatures and reduce the urban heat island effect. Their leaves release water vapor during heat stress, which helps cool the surrounding environment. They've evolved in our climate, are less prone to disease, and are more efficient at utilizing available resources. They're also better at sequestering carbon and keeping it in the ground since they live longer, require less maintenance, and need less replacing.
Native plants help soak up and break down pollutants that would otherwise flow into our rivers and streams. They help restore our lakes and aquifers by having deep roots that allow water to penetrate. When used in a bioswale or rain garden, they act as sponges that soak up runoffs, like excess fertilizers, animal waste, and industrial contaminants. Native plants’ roots are great at protecting creek and river banks from erosion and play an essential role in keeping our lakes and rivers clean.
Native plants help us connect with our land and create a sense of belonging. They help develop our unique identity and positively impact our environment and well-being. Go Native!
