Go Wild with Native Gardening

Returning in May 2015!

Join our Native Gardening group to stay up to date on our relaunch and new features.


Native gardening is good for our air, our water, wildlife and us! Once established, native plants save time and money by reducing—sometimes eliminating—the need for fertilizers, pesticides, water and lawn maintenance equipment.

And, what's more, native gardening is easy to do, no matter where you live. In the videos below, gardeners from across the United States share how they've used native plants in their own yards to reduce storm water runoff, attract wildlife, help their gardens grow and much more.
