Pointe of Grace ~ Native Plant Update 2013 - The native plants donated on Easter Sunday at Pointe of Grace will have an interesting and useful future. They will be planted in one of the two bio-filtration swales in the Native Growth Protection Area near the wetland. These swales were intended to filter the storm water runoff using native plants and grasses. However, mowed grassy slopes do not provide adequate filtering, nor the retention of rainfall, and have no habitat value. These native plants will help correct that problem.
Warren Lashua has designed the planting to be both attractive and useful. He has selected plants to provide food and shelter for wildlife, along with filtering and retaining rainfall.
When most of us think of planting plants, we usually think of using the richest soil available. Like most plants, native plants do very well in rich soil. Unlike most plants though, native plants are well adapted to the common soils found in this area. They will grow very well without the addition of rich soil.
Since these plants will be located near the wetland, special care will be taken to assure they are good wetland partners. Wetlands are low nutrient systems. The introduction of any nutrients beyond what naturally occurs in wetlands is harmful. Such nutrients encourage the growth of non-native invasive plants, and upset the fragile low nutrient balance wetlands need.
When these native plants are planted, we will not be bringing any of the rich soil stored at the garden to fill the holes we have dug for the plants. If we did, the rainwater flowing over the plants would leach out some of the nutrition in that rich soil and take it directly into the wetland, upsetting the natural balance. But, we will be mulching heavily with chips we have stored at the end of the parking lot. These chips will decay, and as they do, they will become a sort of giant sponge, absorbing and retaining rainfall, and becoming the home to various insects that are the delight ofsalamanders and frogs. These salamanders and frogs in turn, occupy a place near the top of the menu for Great Blue Herons.
Everyone can be proud of what their Easter donations are helping to accomplish.
