Building Ecology in a Residential Landscape with Native Plants”

What are invasive plant species and why are they problematic?

Are native plants really so important?

What and how to define a native plant?

Native substitutions / replacements for invasive species

Nothing else matters if you do not plant properly!              

The misconceptions of the uses of and for native plants are numerous. In order to begin to dispel these misconceptions, we must first understand the real reason why we utilize native plants in our landscapes and must remove the problematic invasive species. That reason is ecology. Ecology that begins with the soil under foot to insects that inhabit the very tops of the tree canopy and every living organism in-between these vast spaces.
