When it comes to landscaping around the house, there are more than just environmental benefits in choosing native plants for your yard. Much like an exotic houseplant that needs a lot of TLC to stay alive, non-native plants for your yard can require lots of maintenance. Native plants are tolerant and adaptable to your region’s climate, so they won’t need regular watering and can survive a drought. Plus, they don’t need fertilizer and are often naturally disease- and pest-resistant.
