Native Plants

Native plants are the best way to landscape your backyard wildlife habitat. Plants native to our area have a much lower need for irrigation and fertilizers. They are also more hardy against pests. This makes for a garden that uses less chemicals. Native plant gardens will save water, save natural waterways from runoff and also save you money.

Plants are also the bottom of the food chain. They provide food for all manner of animal species. Providing food for backyard wildlife in this manner will keep critters on their natural feeding cycles. Feeding wildlife with bird feeders and pet food makes animals dependant on humans and trains them to seek out human structures for food. This will always lead to problems.

Having a nice rounded choice of native plants will attract and nourish all manner of wildlife. To the right are some great choices for the Tampa Bay area.
