Why do native plants matter in our gardens and landscapes? In addition to providing shelter and food for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, native plants require far less maintenance, saving time, money, and perhaps the most valuable natural resource, water. On April 15 at 7 pm, Horticulturist and Master Gardener Barbara Dorfman shared information on how to incorporate native plants into our site designs by presenting “Designing a Garden with Native Plants”.
Barbara is an active member of the Georgia Native Plant Society and is passionate about promoting the use of native plants in the home landscape. In her very informative presentation, Barbara displayed pictures of her own beautiful yard and offered ways to incorporate native plants into our overall design incorporating a few plants or a complete makeover.
