Landscaping with Native Plants

Getting ready to spruce up your landscaping? Native plants (plants naturally found in our part of the country), are a great option. Typically requiring less water and maintenance, they are perfectly suited to the Ark-La-Tex. That makes them very easy to care for, especially compared to many exotic or invasive plants often used in home landscaping.

Native plants are also great for attracting birds and other wildlife to your backyard. Invasive and exotic species are often unusable as a food source for our native wildlife, whereas many animals are adapted to feed off of or nest in a particular species of native plant.

Local plant nurseries and the Native Plant Society are great resources for finding native plants and seeds for sale.

Happy planting!
