WE WANT TO HELP YOU CREATE STRIKING HOME LANDSCAPES THAT BENEFIT WILDLIFE AND YOU.
This site provides practical, educationally-sound information on native landscaping developed specifically for first-time native plant gardeners looking for help getting started.
The site also features a growing number of free, downloadable native garden designs created by professional landscape designers for multiple ecoregions in the United States, taking into account various light, soil and moisture conditions.
A plant list accompanies each design and provides a quick preview of the diversity and beauty of the native plants incorporated in each design. Both the designs and the plant lists are printer-friendly.
We hope these resources inspire, encourage and motivate you in your native garden journey!
Meet the designers who created our Milwaukee and Toledo native garden designs!
We want to share with you how the designers of the Milwaukee plan (Danielle Bell) and Toledo plan (Susan Hall) each approached this project and invite you to join us for a free online “Meet the Designers” event on Tuesday, March 9th 5-6 p.m. CST / 6-7 p.m. EST.
Both plans feature nearly 50 native species and were created with the premise that using native plants in landscaping can be beautiful and achievable for gardeners of all skillsets in terms of scope and budget as well as promote wildlife.
