Garden with Natives

Restoring nature, protecting pollinators, nurturing wildlife—these can all be done by you when you garden with native plants. California native plants are not only beautiful, they help save water, reduce maintenance and pesticide use, and invite beneficial pollinators. Whatever size your garden, you can have beauty, biodiversity and refuge just outside your door.
