Native plants offer many benefits from improving soil health to keeping our waterways clean. The long root systems of native plants extend deep within the soil, creating a system of channels that allows water to infiltrate into the soil. In addition, these deep root systems can also remove nutrients and other pollutants from the soil and water. They require little or no fertilizer because they thrive in local soil conditions so not only will you save money on chemical and fertilizer applications, but you can help improve the health of our lakes and streams by keeping extra nutrients and pollutants out of our waterways.
We have 7 types of kits available each with 10 different species of native plants. Each kit contains 50 individual plants and costs $125.00 (that’s only $2.50 a plant!).
