District sources stress that using native plants in your landscape helps support and enhance local environments and habitat for wildlife, birds, and pollinators. Native plants are a great benefit to any landscape because they require minimal or no water once they are established, they rarely require additional fertilizers or pesticides, native plants increase the biodiversity of an area, and they are aesthetically appealing.PMG PHOTO: JUSTIN MUCH - Woodburn Independent - News
