You can reduce your use of chemical garden amendments and use less water in your garden by planting native plants appropriate to your region. These plants thrive in their native climate with minimal care, which means you can reduce nonpoint source pollution and conserve water simultaneously. In addition, many native plants support pollinators like butterflies, bees, and birds, which help keep our farms and gardens productive.
Not sure where to start? Local nurseries will be able to help you find the right native plants for your region.
