Design with Eco-Friendly Native Plants

South River Landscape understands that your outdoor space is an extension of your home. It’s where you relax, entertain and connect with nature. Why not consider designing a haven that’s not only beautiful but also eco-friendly? Native plantings are a fantastic way to achieve this!

Native plants are those that have evolved in your specific region. This means they’re perfectly adapted to your climate, soil conditions and rainfall patterns. They’ll thrive with minimal maintenance, reducing your need for watering and pesticides. Native plantings also play a vital role in our ecosystem, providing food and shelter for pollinators like butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.

So how do you incorporate native plants into your outdoor design? The possibilities are endless! Native perennials and wildflowers can add bursts of color throughout the seasons, while native trees provide cooling shade and a natural habitat for birds. Native grasses can soften hardscape elements like patios and walkways, creating a cohesive look. Don’t forget about native groundcovers! These low-maintenance plants can suppress weeds and add texture to your landscape design.

Tip: When designing your native plant oasis, consider incorporating hardscape elements like stone or rock walls to create different levels and add visual interest. These features can also help with drainage and erosion control.
