We recommend planting indigenous plants – ones that are naturally found in your area. These plants are ideal as they:
- have adapted to the soils and climate
- have reasonably predictable growth rates
- need less maintenance, like pruning and fertilising
- help prevent soil degradation
- attract native birds, animals, and plants
- help maintain the local ecosystem.
