Small urban lots can provide essential stopover habitat for migrating birds and insects. Ecological Corridors are created that migrants can follow and provide large tracts of land for species to live. A Large rural property is needed for breeding and rearing of young.
Invasive species can quickly degrade a diverse habitat by reducing the plant life biodiversity. Once they become established it takes large amounts of time and effort to eradicate them from the site. The sooner they are identified and removal is begun the quicker the diversity can be re-established.
Native plants greatly reduce storm water runoff, making them ideal candidates for green infrastructure. The incorporation of Rain Gardens, Native Trees, and native landscaping can help absorb and filter storm water while supplying pollinators and birds with an important habitat and food source.
Every size landscape fills a niche in the ecological landscape. And each property can benefit from incorporating native plants into the landscape.
