3. Plant a tree. Planting a tree, particularly one native to your area, is a horticultural mitzvah, a good deed that improves the surrounding ecosystem for decades. Make a real difference by choosing a native species that’s disappearing in your area due to habitat destruction (and not because environmental conditions have become unfavorable to its survival). To find the right tree for your garden, check out the native plant database at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.Browse plants native to your region

6. Missouri Botanical Garden. I’ve always liked using its search page to find out what growing conditions would be best for my new native plant purchases. It’s always good to consult several websites to build a consensus, which can save you both maintenance time and heartache. The Missouri Botanical Garden also has display gardens and tons of events.

The pathway leading to the hilltop. The lush trees and greenery. Foggy distance trees will be a great affect.
