What are native plants?
A native plant species naturally occurs in a region without people introducing it from elsewhere.
Native plants are perfectly adapted to their ecosystem and attract local insects, birds, and other pollinators to their flowers. Additionally, with substantially deeper root systems than introduced species, native plants significantly contribute to soil stability.
And for the homeowner interested in landscaping with New York native plant species, there is good news when it comes to the beauty of these plants as well. Swapping out familiar garden plants for their native counterparts will make your gardens more dynamic and surprising without losing your favorite colors or textures.
Why garden with New York native plant species?
Consider these compelling reasons to go native. You may be surprised!
Embrace a sense of place – Rather than relying on the one-size-fits-all plants that can be found at any hardware store across the country, choosing to install native landscaping will bring you a deeper sense of home. Through planting a unique native garden you enjoy the benefits of beautiful plants while reclaiming natural heritage. Embrace the plants that call this region home and discover the joys of a harmonious landscape in concert with nature.
Welcome pollinators – As meadows and forests diminish, private gardens play an increasingly important role in creating habitat for local species. Installing the right New York native plant species will invite butterflies, birds, and other pollinators to deck your landscaping with their color and sound. What’s more, creating an important haven for locally rare species means you are taking part in their preservation.
Fringe benefits – New York native plant species aren’t just a beautiful part of the natural legacy of the landscape. They are also a gardener’s dream because they are easy to care for and make a positive impact on soil erosion and water loss. Once established, native species tend to need less water than introduced plants. They combat most pests naturally without the need for sprays or toxins. And they are excellent for erosion control.
