An Annotated Slide Collection - Slide
While few natural landscaping projects could be characterized as ecological restoration, the introduction of multiple native plant species provides improved habitat supporting increased biodiversity, including butterflies, birds, as well as aquatic plants and animals. Such areas are valuable in themselves, but they also can provide buffers around more sensitive natural areas. In addition, they can restore continuity of habitat that has been lost through the fragmenting impacts of urban development.
