We’ve had beautiful weather in Colorado this week and it has me thinking about planning for our Clean Air garden this spring. I came across a great website, PlantNative, that is an incredible resource for gardeners and landscapers across the country. It provides native plant lists by location, a local nursery finder, recommended books and a detailed how to guide.
At Clean Air we encourage homeowners to plant native grasses that are well suited for the regional climate. The same goes for planning gardens and other landscaping around your home. Using native plant species creates outdoor spaces that are low maintenance requiring less water and fertilization, stimulate microbial life helping to build healthy soil, attract migratory song birds and preserve local biodiversity.
