The number of plants available for landscaping companies to use is practically endless. While they will turn to those found locally out of necessity, a movement toward using native plants whenever possible is emerging, and there are many good reasons why you should consider going this route. It may not be feasible to have a fully native landscaping plan, but the more native plants you include, the more benefits you can experience.
- Best for Native Wildlife- There is a reason why all of the animals, birds, and other species are not found on every continent, in every country, and in every climate. For them to survive, they need a specific diet, so they stay in the areas where those native plants are growing. If landscaping companies were to plant all non-native plants, it could begin to affect native wildlife, as well as migrating species.
- Hardiness- Native plants will stand up better to your climate because that is where they learned to survive in the first place. Rather than ask landscaping companies to plant things that need to be replaced every year, go with natives and you’ll save money too!
- Uphold Regional Landscape- Many areas are known for the native plants that are found there. By planting these plants in your landscaping, you’ll be staying true to your region and community. Some say that makes the landscaping look more natural and appealing instead of out of place.
