SUSTAINABLE GARDENING WITH ECOLOGICALLY BENEFICIAL RESULTS

NATIVE PLANTS SUPPORT HEALTHY ECOSYSTEMS

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.

SUSTAINABLE PRACTICE

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:

  • Designing landscapes that support the web of life necessary in sustaining ecosystem function across our landscape.

  • Offering alternatives to traditional landscaping practices that work with the landscape and contribute positively to soil health.

  • Recommending robust plants suitable for your specific environmental conditions, reducing required maintenance, reducing nutrient pollution, and saving you time and money.

  • Using best practices in integrated pest management to produce healthy plants that are well-adjusted to the local climate and free from neonicotinoids that are harmful to bees.

  • Consciously composting, collecting rainwater, using passive thermal heating to heat our greenhouses, and recycling plastic as fundamental daily practices to grow our plants.
