By adding plants, trees and shrubs that are native to the area, homeowners benefit from environmentally friendly landscaping options that provide a positive impact. Why choose native plants in Northeastern Ohio? Take a look at these reasons:

Varieties can be chosen for wet areas instead of adding mechanical drainage.
