Service: Native Plant Installation
Native plants have very long and intricate root systems. These long root structures may grow as deep as 16 feet depending on the species, they have adapted historically to extreme temperature fluctuations, drought, flooding and fire. Deep rooted native plants are especially beneficial for stabilizing steep pond banks. (Although often preferred by homeowners, turf grass roots only grow to about 3-5 inches deep). Our skilled technicians will install an appropriate native seed mix then cover these seeded areas with a protective blanket, designed to minimize further erosion. This will protect the new seeds, help keep them moist and minimize the competition from weed species until germination.
