Sustainable Home Landscaping with Native Plants

Sustainable Home Landscaping with Native Plants
Restore the integrity & beauty of native ecosystems - one garden at a time.
EDIBLE LANDSCAPE DESIGN EXAMPLE
1
Companion Plants such as “Springbank Clover” and “Broadleaf Lupine” are planted alongside vegetables as a nitrogen-fixing groundcover to improve soil condition.
2
The wetland plants “Cattail” and “Indian Potato” are used in a backyard rain-garden pond to create an important habitat for native wildlife, to filter out pollutants, and to create aesthetic beauty.
3
The drought tolerant plants “Golden Currant” and “Pacific Madrona” are placed in an irrigation free zone to reduce water needs in the home garden.
4
The native wildflowers “Great Camas” and “Henderson Checkermallow” increase native bee, butterfly, and humming bird populations to ensure ample pollination.
5
Berries like “Blackcap Raspberry” and “Thimbleberry” are planted along a west facing fence to create a warmer microclimate for greater fruit yields.
6
The shade-tolerant plants “Fiddlehead Fern” and “Redwood Sorrel” are used to bring life to dark areas of the garden.
