All too often our landscapes are nothing more than decoration and designed as a feast for human eyes. Unfortunately, this approach to our landscapes is not sustainable. In this presentation, we will discuss why our landscapes shouldn?t be “just another pretty face” and how we can contribute to a healthy, vibrant ecosystem with the use of native plants that provides both visual interest and habitat for native wildlife.
