Take a journey through the seasons to discover a few native plants every gardener should try because they are great for wildlife, grow well in a range of conditions and look beautiful in most gardens, including small-medium landscapes. Plus they’re easy to find or purchase locally. Also learn design tips for each, and receive a helpful handout summarizing this information.
Denise Sandoval is the landscape designer and owner of Good-Natured Landscapes LLC, creating beautiful, functional and kind to the Earth landscapes featuring native plants since 2005. After volunteering at a local prairie 19 years ago, Denise made it her mission to landscape with native plants after finishing her horticulture degree in design. She’s an active Wild Ones member and served on the Greater DuPage Chapter board for 15 years. She also worked retail at the original Natural Garden Nursery and as a [email protected] assistant for The Conservation Foundation. One of her design projects received the Chicago Wilderness Native Landscaping and Conservation Award. She gardens with native plants at home, creating her first rain garden in 2004, and performing prescribed burns on her prairie. Her greatest inspiration and teacher is the natural world.
