This is an example of a landscape plan for
Minnesota native plant species you could plant on a suburban lot. The design
incorporates groupings of native plants naturally found in prairie, oak
savanna, oak woodland, and wetland edge or wet meadow habitats. Select
the plants which fit your particular site. Turf grass is limited to functional,
easier to mow paths and patches, while the rest of the site is naturalized
with well-adapted natives which are beautiful, invite birds and butterflies,
and help protect adjacent wetlands.
