Your Native Yard — Native Plant Garden Consultation with Rachel Mackow, co-owner of Wild Ridge Plants

Your Native Yard is a virtual/distance consulting service offered by Wild Ridge Plants. Designed for hands-on gardeners who want to beautify their landscape with native plants, Your Native Yard provides guidance for choosing natives that will succeed in your garden.

We will work together on your garden project – whether you have a blank slate or are augmenting a thriving garden, or something in between. Recommended plants will be based upon your habitat and gardening goals, including providing for wildlife and pollinators, butterfly and moth host plants, and even native edibles.

What Your Native Yard includes:

You will come away with a tailored plant list for each garden based upon your land’s conditions, including sunlight/shade, moisture, and soil conditions. Plant lists feature a picture of the species, the plant’s height, deer resistance rating, siting conditions, and a brief description.

A one-page report accompanies each plant list, briefly describing your goals and garden’s conditions, any special considerations for specific species, and recommended groupings.

In addition, you will receive a half hour follow up phone conversation to discuss your plant lists.

Please note, this service is virtual and does not include site visits.
