Plants provide pleasant colorful contrast to our landscape. Maintaining a variety of plant types and species retains soil and decreases erosion, and gives yards visual interest. Native plants are always the best choice for use in landscapes, restoration projects, storm water projects, and naturalized areas. Wetlands areas also play an important role in the eco-system, providing water, food, and oftentimes cover for animals and organisms. Wetlands plants also improve water quality by removing nutrients and some toxins from the water and storing them. Moreover, wetland plants can reduce peak flood events and stabilize soils.
