Visit the Wild Ones Native Garden Designs website.  The site provides practical, educationally-sound information on native landscaping developed specifically for first-time native plant gardeners looking for help getting started.

The site also features a growing number of free, downloadable native garden designs created by professional landscape designers for multiple ecoregions in the United States, including Chattanooga, taking into account various light, soil and moisture conditions.

A plant list accompanies each design and provides a quick preview of the diversity and beauty of the native plants incorporated

in each design. Both the designs and the plant lists are printer-friendly.

We hope these resources inspire, encourage and motivate you in your native garden journey!
