Native plants provide wildlife habitat that supports pollinators. They require less water and fewer chemicals when compared to non-natives. Just half an acre of lawn converted to forest and allowed to grow to maturity will sequester more CO2 than a car emits in a year. Mulch mow: If clippings were left to decompose on lawns, the US could store up to 16,700,000 tons of carbon each year in the soil.
