When landscaping, it is best to use plants which are native to the area. When choosing plants, native plants are a perfect fit because they will thrive in your climate. These plants do well in the soil you already have, don’t need additional water or fertilizer and can handle the temperature swings your area experiences, all while thriving beautifully.
Fill your yard with native plants. Native plants require less maintenance as they are already in their ideal climate. This makes them easier to care for than imported plants. Your local gardening store will be able to advise you about the types of plants that will thrive in the area that you live.
