Using Flowers & Shrubs that Naturally Occur in our Climate
The North Carolina State University, “Going Native” campaign which seeks to assist homeowners with making changes to their landscape Boone by introducing native plants to their landscape is a great resource to check out if you are interested in transforming your backyard using indigenous plants that grow native in your region.
Why “Go Native” with your Boone Landscaping?
Native plants and wildflowers promote birds and butterflies and other pollinators in our region. Pollinators are on the decline, especially bees, and it is crucial that we do everything we can to increase their populations. Our food supply, and lives depend on their existence. Indigenous plants also support the native wildlife of your area because they provide the necessary nutrients that the animals living in your region need. Using native plants also comes with less maintenance, as the plants are naturally suited to Boone, and do not need various interventions in order to live in our climate.
We live in one of the most beautiful regions in the south. The Appalachian Mountains are believed to be some of the oldest in the world, forming some 480 million years ago. At one time, they were once as tall as the Rockies, or even the Alps. They have naturally eroded over the hundreds of millions of years, and as such have shaped the biological diversity that you’ll find in our plant life and animal life. Why would you not want to preserve all the amazing natural resources that our area affords? Green and environmentally aware homeowners appreciate the discernment and advice that our Boone Landscaping team can provide in this area with regards to the best ways to “Go Native”, and the varieties of plants that you should be using.
