In Southern California, local wildlife, such as butterflies, bumblebees, quail, roadrunners, cactus wren, toads and glowworms, have disappeared from the city because their habitat has been lost.
We can help you "rewild" or restore wildlife habitat in your neighborhood. Just contact us and we'll guide you through the step by step process, which includes a visit to a local reference site, plant and wildlife ID, harvesting of seeds and cuttings, plant propagation and planting techniques.
NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF SYNTHETIC LAWN/TURF
Off-gassing from the synthetic lawn produces an unattractive toxic chemical odor.
The surface temperature and air temperature above synthetic lawn increases significantly during heat waves.
Polluting leaf blowers are consistently used to remove leaf litter and other natural debris from synthetic lawns.
Toxic petrochemical herbicides are consistently used to prevent “weeds” from growing in or around the synthetic lawn.
Recycled tire bedding ends up in storm drain.
No pollinators or other wildlife are able to rely on synthetic lawns for their survival.
The California Native Plant Society is restoring nature one garden at a time by supporting and encouraging the use of California native plants throughout our public and private landscapes. Planting California natives can help save water, reduce maintenance and pesticide use, and invite beneficial pollinators. Restore a sense of place in your community, provide important habitat for our wildlife, and help us preserve our very special ecosystem.
“Our National Parks, no matter how grand in scale are too small and separated from one another to preserve species to the levels needed. Thus, the concept for Homegrown National Park, a bottom-up call-to-action to restore habitat where we live and work, and to a lesser extent where we farm and graze, extending national parks to our yards and communities.” Homegrown National Park®
