Have You Tried a Native Garden? It's Great for the Environment!

Have You Tried a Native Garden? It's Great for the Environment!

What if your garden could do more than look beautiful and provide you with your own little oasis? What if that garden could also help the plants and wildlife that surround where you live?

In fact, your garden has the potential to do just that! As more people grow environmentally conscious, having a native garden grows more popular.

A native garden is exactly what it sounds like: It's a garden that only has plants that are indigenous to the region it's in.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider having a native garden of your own.

A Native Garden Requires Little Watering

Want to save time, water, and money on your water bill? If so, a native garden is an excellent solution.

A native garden is full of plants that naturally do well in the environment you live in—meaning that they don't need a lot of extra fussing to do well. However, the average rainfall in your region should provide plenty of water for native plants.

No Pesticides or Fertilizers

In addition to not needing a lot of extra water, a native plant garden also will not need added pesticides or a lot of fertilizer. That's because these plants are meant to grow in the type of soil that is indigenous to your area.

And to make matters even better, native plants won't require much mowing or other types of maintenance!

Help Your Natural Habitat

When humans try to exert too much control over the environment they live in, it can have devastating effects on the native plant and wildlife. This can trigger a domino effect that is catastrophic to the food chain and to our climate.

Fortunately, maintaining a native garden is one small thing you can do to help your local wildlife—including bees, birds, butterflies and more—not just survive, but thrive.

Scenic and Serene

Having a native garden doesn't mean having a boring garden—on the contrary, some native plants are so under-used that having them in your garden will help your home stand out from the others on your block.

As native gardens become more popular, taking the time to put one in now could even increase your home's property value.

There's also a special sense of calm that comes from having a low-maintenance, flourishing garden, and knowing that you aren't trying to force any plants to grow where they aren't meant to be.
