Dave has lived on his 1/4-acre lot in Wonder Lake for the last 33 years, and landscaping with native plants for 25 of those years!
He likes the butterflies and other pollinators that he sees. He was encouraged to sign up for [email protected] after seeing a TLC display board with a picture of another [email protected] participant, Jim Anderson, with his sign and beautiful native plantings. He advises folks to stay away from "really bossy" native plants like cup plant in smaller backyard plantings, as they will quickly take over. For front yard gardens, he advises keeping a defined, managed edge for a cared-for look. Thanks for the words of wisdom, Dave!
