WHY GO NATIVE?
CREATING BEAUTY AND LONGEVITY
There is a wealth of scientific information that illustrates the benefits of native plants for attracting local wildlife, even in highly urban settings. Small properties can hold native plant gardens large enough to serve as host to native birds and pollinators. Networks of neighbors acting together can amplify this impact by providing stepping stones or corridors of native trees and plants that increase the abundance and diversity of a multitude of species.
As the human population grows, we must make changes, big and small, to protect the natural world for future generations. We strive to do our part at Seven Bends to support these efforts by:
Developing landscapes that support pollinators, wildlife, and soils that will keep our ecosystems healthy and productive
Conserving rainwater and promoting soil health by providing the resources to grow native plants in backyards and meadows
Promoting alternate methods for maintaining a thriving and pest-free garden.
