Grow Native: Landscaping with Native Plants

Genus Loci actively promotes the use of native species in all landscape projects. 

Native plants are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to horticultural exotic species, especially ones that are invasive. Native plants are comparable in terms of their beauty and general interest, and they can also provide food and shelter for local birds, bees and butterflies. Native plants are generally better adapted to local climates and rainfall rates, and are thefore an ideal choice for water efficient gardens. Although typically associated with more naturalistic landscapes, native plants can be used in more formal arrangements. Either way, native plants are rapidly becoming an essential component of ecologically sustainable landscapes. Genus Loci's native species planting designs are sure to aesthetically enrich any garden or landscape, while helping to protect and restore our natural heritage.
