An Annotated Slide Collection -
Urban gardeners are increasingly interested in emphasizing native plants in their yards. Such gardeners may participate in programs designed to increase the propagation of scarce native plant species and to increase the availability of seed. Natural gardens reduce the amount of turf and the maintenance it requires. Natural gardens provide variety to the urban landscape and attract butterflies and birds. Avoidance of landscaping chemicals is particularly appealing in areas with concentrations of people and children. This natural garden was created by two adjacent lot owners who converted their adjoining side yards into one garden space.
