Why Native Plants and Natural Landscaping
Native plants are interesting and beautiful. Natural landscaping doesn’t waste energy resources. Native plants and natural landscaping are important factors in restoring and maintaining biodiversity – keeping in mind that biodiversity is important to all life on Earth – including all human life.
