Native Landscaping - Planting prairie dropseed

This beautiful young prairie dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis) is now at home. It this ecological landscaping design, the plants are planted through a hole into the cardboard partially into the base soil. This will help the plant extend roots deeply, become accustomed to the rough soil on location, while still accessing the shallower nutrition of the layers of degrading leaf compost above the cardboard.
