Maryland’s Eastern Shore is a beautiful, biologically diverse ecosystem. Fish, water, soil, sand, hundreds of different plant varieties, native animals, and even the bugs all work together to keep the cycle of life moving. When humans move into this ecosystem, it can be disrupted. By growing Eastern Shore native plants in your garden and on your property, you’re minimizing your impact on the local ecosystem. Here are some more of the many benefits to using native plants on your property.
These native plants have been evolving and adapting to the local environment since long before we came onto the scene. These many years of evolution have given the plants the tools they need to survive with very little or no outside interference. You will probably want to trim them every once in a while, but your native plants shouldn’t require a whole lot of work.
Weather on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is famous for its profound lack of predictability. Locals often joke that we regularly experience multiple seasons throughout the course of a single day. These radical changes in temperature and precipitation can be difficult to get through for many plants, but for plants that are native to the area, it’s just another day.
Support Natural Habitats
When land is cleared to build homes, existing plant life is often removed to make room for the construction. By re-planting these native plants, once the construction is finished, you’re making sure that there is as little impact on the existing habitats as possible. Whether the plant creates food for the little Sika deer or a home for some dragonflies they are all important for the Eastern Shore’s ecosystem.
