In Ontario we are quite fortunate to have an abundance of beautiful native plants to create natural and sustainable gardens in our own backyards.
Being in touch with nature can help you feel more removed from the stresses of everyday life. With all the time we spend indoors, it”s natural to feel an urge to connect with nature. While you may not have the time to hike a trail or go camping, having your own little piece of nature right outside your back door can help you feel some of this connection. You can create your own peaceful place to unwind, enjoy and feel great knowing you are helping your environment too.
Plants that are native to your area are obviously hardy to your plant zone, don”t require extra maintenance, and are generally resistant to diseases and insects. Once established in gardens and landscapes they will survive well with minimal watering. A native garden will require less water, less fertilizer and less work, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Native gardens also attract numerous species of insects, birds and butterflies. Imagine having a visually stunning natural ecosystem in your own backyard!
