A recent year we were contracted to do the design and install for the landscape renovation of an urban garden. The client’s urban location crystalized a wildlife corridor in Saratoga Springs, NY through the positioning of several dozen individual local properties with eco-savvy landscape design. This habitat renewal space is located in front yard gardens in downtown Saratoga Springs.
The Joe Pye Weed (Eupatorium maculata) is very happy along the back side of the design. Later in fall when the Joe Pye flowers turn to seed pods it’ll coincide with the NY Ironweed (Vernonia noveboracensis) coming into brilliant purple bloom.
The neighborhood’s pollinators have taken notice of all the new native plants, like the bee on the Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) in this photo. It’s astonishing to observe the neighborhood pollinators discover a new urban garden. Species of buzzing, flying beings never seen before just auto-populate into such a habitat.
More species of native plants have been added in time to the front yard urban gardens in Saratoga Springs, NY this year. As this habitat, exclusively native plants landscape design continues to become established it is excited to see how it will unfold.
