High Line

native plants

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another main design element is the use of native plants. Let them grow tall and free as long as their placement and relation to each other is thoughtful. Don't worry about them looking like overgrown weeds. There are portions of the High Line that remained untouched, making the difference between neglected weeds and carefully positioned native plants very clear.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Natural Garden Style
The High Line, a converted elevated railroad track in New York City, is planted with natives along the walkway. The result is an easy-care space, but it was achieved after carefully considering plant placement so the plants would grow naturally yet not overrun the beds and the walkway.Tip: Adding a planting bed in front of a potentially dangerous edge, such as the fence line here, and then planting it solidly, helps create a subtle physical barrier. You may not have a drop-off, but the same idea would work along the edge of the yard, encouraging people to use the pathways rather than tromp across the lawn.

TIP:Placig plants along edge of driveway, corner near mailbox, etc prevents people from stomping on existing grass and using pathways instead.
