2) Local Native Gardens Attract Local Wildlife

An exciting advantage of native gardens is their ability to connect us with other parts of the environment. Compared to typical garden plants, local native plants are much more likely to attract native wildlife in the form of birds, bees, butterflies, and lizards. For example, since the local native plants are native bees' historic sources of food, it is not surprising that The Xerces Society has found that native plants are four times more likely to attract these bees than non-native plants. When native birds begin to find the food that naturally evolved with, the plant community begins to extend to communities of other beings and what feels like an ecology can emerge.
