Ei Native-Plant Landscape Pilot

Native-plant landscapes provide urban wildlife access to food and habitat. When pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide free, native-plant landscapes provide urban wildlife a safe haven amid city life filled with buildings, roadways, and often sterile and/or toxic open areas.

Local wildlife evolved to thrive on native foliage and, in general, do not eat or nest in non-native plants. Additionally, many non-native plants are invasive and choke out native plants, further challenging urban wildlife.

Elemental Impact (Ei) Founder & CEO Holly Elmore dedicated her spacious yard for a native-plant landscape pilot. The front yard was designated for only native plants with a focus on food and habitat for local urban wildlife. In the backyard, permaculture practices were followed with ample human-food producing plants, whether native or not.
