Often when people hear “naturalized” or “native” garden, their first impression is of an untamed, uninviting, or even downright messy landscape. But imagine a landscape that meets the needs of both people AND wildlife; a garden that is beautiful, sustainable, and ecologically healthy. This is not a Utopian vision, but a realistic and desirable goal for the home landscape.

Through colorful photographs and real project examples, Theresa Sprague of BlueFlax Design LLC will share the aesthetic qualities and wildlife habitat value of a range of commercially available native plant species while considering principles of good ecological design including site analysis, wildlife needs, zones of use, sensory experiences, and cues to care. Bring your Cape Cod plant and garden questions!
