Native Landscaping

The way we manage our yards and gardens can have a significant effect on our environment. You can have a beautiful, healthy yard that is also environmentally friendly.

Minnesota is home to a variety of native plants that provide a low maintenance and beautiful landscape while eliminating the need for fertilizers and excessive water use in your garden.
