Native plants provide wonderful habitat for our native wildlife. They offer food and a good place to find shelter and nesting sites. Use them to attract songbirds and beneficial insects to your yard. They are also useful in water quality projects such as rain gardens!
Rain Gardens are designed to take the rainwater that runs off your roof, sidewalks or other hard surfaces, and allow the water to slowly drain into the soil. This gives homeowners the chance to help recharge water in our local aquifers.
