No invasive plants



To prevent the introduction of invasive species through landscaping.


Introduce no invasive plant species into the landscape.

Invasive plant species vary by region. Consult the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s GRIN Taxonomy for Plants database, the National Association of Exotic Pest Plant Councils, or local cooperative extension service or state or national exotic pest lists for plants in natural areas and wildlands. Not all nonnative species are considered invasive.
