Natural Landscaping

What is Natural Landscaping?

Natural landscaping uses colorful native plants, ornamentals, or a combination of the two, to manage rainwater while beautifying your yard. Native plants have deep growing root systems that help break up soil, allowing more water to drain into the ground. Landscaping with native plants helps promote a healthy natural landscape that creates a habitat for local birds, bees, and butterflies. By installing native plants and ornamentals, you can have a beautiful landscape while mowing less.
