Native Sun Gardens strives to unify ecology with aesthetic.
When the right plants are put in the right part of the earth,
much less energy is needed for them to thrive.
By assessing each garden, as it's own unique combination of elements,
Native Sun Gardens is able to introduce species that will be happy, look
great and begin to reinvigorate the bountiful native ecology of your community!
