Is your lakeshore eroding, unsightly or seem to be a goose magnet? Does your lake water turn green each summer? Native plantsstabilize shorelinesand act as a buffer between your yard and the lake. The roots of native plants filter and absorb polluted run-off and excess nutrients before they ever enter the water. What’s more, native plants anchor soil while beautifying your shoreline. The natural height and density of native plantings also discourage geese who prefer turf. Encourage neighbors to join you in keeping your lake clean. After all, protecting the lake enhances everyone’s enjoyment while preserving property values.
