Native Plant Gardening

Looking to start or to enhance native plant gardening at home? Anyone can landscape with native plants whether you’re using a few planters on a small, urban patio or turning tons of turf into gardens galore. Check out the Native Plant Nurseries Map on the Lake Erie Allegheny Partnership’s (LEAP) web site to find a good place to start buying seeds and plants!

Native plants attract native wildlife, reduce soil erosion, require less fertilizer and watering, promote native regional biodiversity, support pollinators, thrive under natural conditions, and help better connect us to nature. Add some color to your life with native flowers, grasses, trees, and shrubs!
