The goal is to create both an extremely sustainable landscape that breaks from traditional, less aesthetically-aware designs. You want to use native plants when you can, and only use adaptive plants when necessary. Adaptive plants are flora that won’t become invasive to ecological systems.
Some Bloom Longer
Not all flowers slumber in winter. As plants fade into shades of sienna, lion, amber and umber, some flora will still have pellets hanging on even when temperatures fall down into the mid to low 20s. These late-late bloomers offer a unique and pleasant surprise.
If you want to create a more ecologically, beautiful landscape with native plants and winter interest, feel free to contact us about your project.
