Why We Use Native Plants
Native plants have evolved to live in our soils, with our insects and with no additional irrigation. This means no expensive water bills, no harmful pesticides, and less work! Tributaries plants the right plant in the right place at the right time so you never have to irrigate!

Backyard Wildlife Habitat Certification
Every Tributaries landscape is certified as Backyard Wildlife Habitat™ upon completion. The Backyard Wildlife Habitat™ program, conducted through a partnership between the Delaware Nature Society and the National Wildlife Federation, provides official certification for properties that meet four criteria necessary for wildlife habitat; food, water, cover, and places for wildlife to raise young.

Conservation Landscapes Don't Attract Wildlife They Grow It!
