    EARLY SPRING OFFER (valid through April 30)

    GET A COMPLETE NATIVE MAKEOVER FOR YOUR FLOWER BED OR GARDEN. WHAT COULD BE MORE WORTH IT?

    $900 for up to 100 sq ft (the value of the plants)
    Included are our all-native plants, design and installation.
    I wanted to share this great find. American Native Nursery, spring offer seams to be a great deal.

    You can get a turn-key butterfly garden, phlox garden, small grassland meadow, classic foundation planting, or whatever is best for your planting area, using all native plants.

    Larger areas:
    $1,700 for up to 200 sq ft
    $2,500 for up to 300 sq ft

    Bring a picture or sketch of your planting area for an on-site consultation and design. Or we can arrange a visit to assess your conditions. Installation can be scheduled for fall or spring, based on your preference.

    WHY NATIVE


    The reasons are many, and since you are reading this you might have thought of a few already.

    Environmental sustainability - natives are much "greener" than imported plants as they require little irrigation and no fertilization. Since most landscape-suitable natives are perennials, their use saves you time and money.

    Biodiversity - it is well documented how native plants support biodiversity through a number of natural mechanisms. They provide food and shelter to wildlife as an integral part of well-established and healthy ecosystems.

    Economic considerations - the lower cost of growing and maintaining natural plantings is the most immediate benefit you will see. It is closely related to all the other reasons we've listed: no need for expensive fertilizers and other chemicals used in traditional gardening and lawn maintenance, no irrigation - no racking up your water bill in the summer, no costly replacement of exotic plants that didn't make it through a harsh winter or a dry summer... the list goes on.

    The aesthetic of natural beauty - subtler color palettes, delicate shapes, endless diversity, refreshing variability in place of monotony and uniformity. It looks and feels like "coming home". It provides a welcome break from the "off-the-shelf" look spreading through our neighborhoods. It resonates with the values of our time...

    Oya, the Nursery is in Bucks County, PA. Were you solely interested in promoting native plant species? Maybe there is a local affiliate that can offer similar packages.
