When the time comes to choose vegetation for your landscaping, opt for native plants, as they are adapted to our environment. First of all, they can live in our climate. Therefore, they grow easily and they need very little maintenance. Wild flowers, shrubs and trees offers breeding ground for pollinators (like bees), birds, butterflies and other representatives of our native fauna.
Advantages of landscaping with native plants

- Improve biodiversity
- More resistant against diseases

- Don’t need lots of water
Finally, rather than plant species coming from abroad, ask your nursery native plants. You’ll be surprised of the result and the low maintenance!
