Think about perennials and native plants

Here are some wonderful photos of plants which will grow naturally in your yard and be beautiful.  They will attract beneficial insects and provide natural habitat for a healthy ecology.

I have several of these plants in my yard.  I have been filling it up for several years now.  Last spring we had beautiful blossoms and bee and butterfly activity.  We did not water even one drop all summer.  This fall the blooms returned and gave our yard more beautiful color.

Here is a link to plants which you can use to beautify your yard, improve the health of yourself and your neighbors with native plants, and cut down on your water bill.
