Native Plants in the Landscape - Undertaking the Know Maintenance Approach
The “Know Maintenance Approach” first recognizes the character and lifestyle of the plants, then comes to know how to place them together as young plants so they can establish in healthy relationships as they mature. Understanding best gardening practices accompanies the plants to maturity and to the continued health, beauty and well-being of the plant community. First, you must know the plants! Without knowledge of plants nothing can be accomplished that has any possibility to be healthier than everything our landscapes are now. Second, I’m not asserting that this process will make you more money! I’d like to share with you the methods I’m still learning and the acknowledgement I have received from public agencies and private homeowners.
