Gardening with Native Plants

The best plant choices for gardens are often the native plants that thrive naturally in our region. A native plant includes those species that were here prior to European settlement. Rewarding and dynamic, “naturescapes” are functional gardens that reflect the native richness and beauty of our unique region. 

HAT has tons of gardening info (below) to help to put together the perfect naturescape! From Lasagna Gardening to Healthy Lawns to Container Gardening , there is something to help every green thumb!
