Formal Gardens with Native Plants
Traditional Landscape, Chicago
Designed by John Mariani, this formal garden uses native plants for a traditional design with an exceptional environmental twist. Taking advantage of the many benefits of native materials, like less maintenance, watering, fertilizing; a naturally acclimation to the environment; and generation of a habitat for wildlife that adds life to the space, the many plants chosen each fulfill a different need- height, color, and texture. The layout of the plants in a formal manner makes for a decorative display. Photo Credit: Ed Caplan of DOF Images
