Planting in a Post-Wild World

“Start with the bare soil in your garden, the areas where you see mulch, and start to think through how you can replace that mulch with a layer of plants. This can be underneath existing shrubs, the edges of beds, lots of spaces in gardens that might not be the highest maintained area, the edges of the property where there’s bare soil. Start thinking about replacing that with a density and diversity of some of the green native ground cover plants. That, to me, is the simplest thing.”
