Use Native Vegetation for a Healthier Environment
Landscaping with Michigan native wildflowers and grasses improves the environment and brings a taste of wilderness to suburban settings by attracting a variety of birds, butterflies and other animals. Once established, native plants do not need fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides or watering thereby improving the environment and reducing maintenance costs. Using landscaping techniques such as porous walkways can increase infiltration and decrease runoff. Remember, we all can contribute to the health of our waterways in many ways!
