Sustainability and Beauty in the Urban Core – it can be done! Tour of Hannah Texler’s gardens in St. Paul.
“I have been landscaping with native plants in my urban yard for over 20 years with an ecological focus. The yard has over 100 native plant species in prairie and woodland gardens. All of the plants in my back yard are either native to Ramsey County or edible to humans (blueberries, raspberries, vegetables and herbs). I also have rain gardens and a rain barrel to keep rainwater in my yard. My latest projects involve creating native prairie gardens with fall seeding.” — HT
