Re: Beautiful landscapes or water conservation?

April 2017 Landscape Trades

Interesting article in Landscape Trades on Fusion Gardening. I think I can begin to see what the primary motivation with this program is; get people to embrace an alternative landscape approach that is less water dependant. However, I noted only a few native plants on the recommended plant list. I’m not a big fan of the all-native movement but there are a number of natives that could replace the exotics listed which would provide better support for the local fauna.
