American Beauties Native PlantsĀ® Benefits for Landscapers

Differentiate your Business
Let customers know you’re in tune to the eco-friendly lifestyle. Instead of just installing a landscape, give your customers a Certified Wildlife Habitat®. We can show you how.

  • Differentiate your business, show your forward thinking approach
  • Offer more than just a landscape, offer a Certified Wildlife Habitat®
  • Natives require less water and maintenance, fewer disease problems
  • Our tags teach customers about all of the benefits native plants offer
  • Customers feel great knowing they support the National Wildlife Federation

Creating a wildlife friendly garden is easy and will give your customers the satisfaction of knowing they are doing their part for the environment. A portion of the proceeds of every American Beauties plant sold supports the NWF. Being able to tell your customers that they are giving back is a great selling point. By delivering a garden that improves our ecosystem you are not only giving your customers a landscape, you’re giving them an experience and superior quality of life. When you finish the job and present your customer with the National Wildlife Federation’s official Certified Wildlife Habitat sign they will be proud to display it in their garden and that’s a great advertisement for you.  All you need to do to qualify is to provide food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young. Then go online to get certified and order your special sign.

Provide Food for Wildlife

The easiest way to provide food for wildlife is to plant native plants that will produce their natural diet of foliage, nectar, pollen, berries, seeds and nuts. Supplemental feeders can also be integrated into the plan. 

Provide Water for Wildlife

Installing a water feature would be a wonderful way to have a steady supply of water for wildlife. As everyone knows, water brings life to any garden. If a pond is out of the question a bird bath or a dish on the ground would suffice.

Create Cover for Wildlife

Animals need cover to hide from predators and inclement weather. Dense shrubs and evergreens can provide cover all year. Leaving a brush pile in a quite corner of the yard also works well.

A Place to Raise their Young

When you create cover you are generally also creating a safe place for wildlife to raise their young. Meadows and perennial borders are great for butterflies to lay their eggs. Adding birdhouses and ponds helps wildlife through their entire life cycle.

Water efficient landscaping as it is referred to, is a critical part of certification as are native plants. According to an article from NPR, LEED certified building represents nearly one third of all current construction in the United States, and the green building sector has been a bright spot in a down economy. Predictions are that green construction will reach $122 billion by 2015.  Be ready and let us help you choose the right plants.
