Using nature as inspiration for creating naturalistic gardens is key to creating sustainable and enjoyable gardens with native plants. Naturalistic landscapes are both pleasing, as conventional gardens become more reflective of natural gardens, but also ecologically balanced, providing sustenance for you, and for fellow inhabitants of your site.
