At Hawthorne Garden Design we love incorporating native plants into all types of gardens. They contribute to a thriving ecosystem of wildlife and other plant life. Native plants bring out the beauty of the natural landscape, contributing to a complex ecosystem that has existed for thousands of years. Did I forget to mention... they're absolutely beautiful!!
