Many of our indigenous species are effectively-suited to compact spaces, allowing persons to generate natural backyard garden vignettes in decorative containers, by entrances or all over mailboxes. Slow-rising shrubs and compact perennials are least difficult to use, but larger sized-growing natives are also ideal when employed in yearly or short-time period plantings. Combining vegetation in smaller spaces does not have to be intricate — but added benefits from using nature’s inspiration to build satisfying naturalistic models and assist native pollinators.
Wagner will share her preferred natives and design approaches for smaller gardens and containers.
