There are always a group of people who care about nature and their surroundings. They would not leave a space vacant and would try to plant a crop or plant there. They are the people who take great pride in understanding the basics of having a kitchen garden or even a manicured garden at least for aesthetic appeal. There are also people who understand that nature works genially with all the creatures under one wing and so they would even have bird feeders, squirrel feeders and waterspouts, and fountains for birds and other small animals who visit their garden. Such a love for not just the plants and trees, but even for the animals and birds make the lives so easy. Though every country would have its own method of beautifying the cityscape, but only a few citizens actually step up and contribute towards nature in their own way.
What the world needs now?
Many might get the inspiration to improve the greenery around by going for planting in their garden and making landscape like never seen before. However, those who also have a farm land in states like Texas would need to look for plants which do not take up a lot of water.
Instead of going for bringing in or shipping in plants from different other states and climatic zones one shall go for getting grass seed of native plants and grass. There are a few native grass like the Buffalo grass, or the other dense grass types that are suitable to sustain and restore prairies in the areas.
Farm owners often look for methods to improve their livestock’s feed and this is where planting these native crops would help. Though the livestock might not be able to feed on the grass right after planting it or while they are growing itself. But by the next time, you, as a farmer would be aware of the time and then manage the livestock feeding of this type of grass.
This is something that is not just environment friendly, but also sustainable for farm owners who also have livestock feed and production to work on. These days, shopping online for forbs, and grass seed, and even a blend of seeds and legumes is possible too. However, while shopping all that one has to check out is the condition it requires to survive and the amount of water it would need.
Besides grass, one also has to check out on planting flowering plants that shall help in bringing back the bees and other small insects and birds to pollinate and bring balance to the world. Today, globally, animals are dying a slow death and the only big factor is the loss of their habitat or food for survival.
So, by planting saplings, and grasses and flowering plants, one is going back to the roots by planting wisely. In order for your conservation and restoration of prairie plan to succeed, you must just take steps to get the right native seeds and plant them right in the appropriate soil condition.
