Local government web sites increasingly advocate for ecological landscaping with native plants

quarryjoy | September 7, 2010  | All U.S. state governments now offer advisories promoting ecological landscaping with native plants, and cities are following suit. At this time, Franklin, Wis., is examining its official policy on the subject. This program has been prepared in an effort to put this topic in perspective.
You are welcome to share it with your local officials. ~ Joy B.

Machines you should know: flail mower

When you set about turning an old field into a native meadow, a walk-behind flail mower can prove to be a spine-kind convenience. You may be able to rent one or hire someone who offers a mowing service. (Depending on the circumstances, fire might be a preferable tool, but executing a controlled burn requires some education, so you’re advised to get training. Contact personnel at your local nature center or state park office for guidance and volunteer opportunities.)
