The benefit of native plant species is that they already know how to survive the Maryland climate and thrive.

There are beautiful native plants to Maryland that will beautify your lawn without costing you extra. Generally, lawns are made up of generic grass that takes a lot of care and maintenance. The benefit of native plant species is that they already know how to survive the Maryland climate and thrive. 

Don’t Get Rid of Your Lawn

Whether you want to replace your lawn with native plants or simply supplement your lawn, there is a myriad of choices. Replacing your entire lawn is expensive and will take time. Slowly implementing native plants into your landscape over time is more affordable and less of a headache. Honeysuckle Nursery and Design is committed to helping you create the lawn of your dreams. Modern lawn care instruments like a lawn irrigation system are applicable to a yard of native plants. 

3 Native Species You Can Plant

  1. When it is time for new grass, check out Maryland native blue sedge (Carex glauca). This plant thrives in moist environments requires less maintenance throughout the year.
  2. If you are looking for a showstopper, the American tiger lily (Lilium superbum) thrives in partially shaded gardens. It grows up to 6 feet.
  3. If you are looking for a recognizable classic, the Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) is perfect. 

Help Your Pollinators

Creating an eco-friendly lawn doesn’t have to just be about your grass. Pollinators like bees, butterflies, and birds fertilize plants. Without pollinators, plants are less likely to fertilize or spread well. Make your lawn friendly to pollinators by choosing plants where they can build a home. Trees like the white oak, if you have the space, are ideal homes for birds. We work with you to design the right landscape for your home.
