Schools provide excellent settings for natural landscaping because school curricula regarding biology, ecology, and environment can be structured around a hands-on, on-site project that can be installed and managed over time. The school grounds benefit from a more distinctive appearance and the school district budget is relieved of groundskeeping costs. The same concept can be applied to parks. Municipalities and park districts can sponsor natural landscaping projects in order to provide the multiple benefits, including the opportunity to offer nature programs oriented towards natural landscaping.
