Landscape Design with Native Plants by Judy Mielke
Landscape Architect & Author of Native Plants for Southwestern Landscapes

“Why natives?” asks author and Landscape Architect Judy Mielke. “The Southwestern deserts contain some of the most unique natural landscapes in the world.” Native plants are being lost to development at an alarming rate. By incorporating natives into planned landscapes, we can help restore a small part of the desert ecosystem.

You can look to the desert for inspiration and see how see how to blend some of that natural beauty into your own landscape. Due to extended drought conditions throughout the Southwest, all the more reason to grow natives.
