Native Plant & Invasives Control
Invasive plants pose a serious threat to New England landscapes. Exotic alien species like Polygonum and Artemisia displace native plant communities and quickly colonize disturbed, unmanaged sites and ornamental landscapes. Kent + Frost has expertise in the eradication and management of invasive plants in a range of environments from wetlands to upland landscapes and has prepared management guides for municipalities and institutional clients.
The successful use of native plants in the landscape requires a skillful blending of science and art employed aby K+F. Standard horticultural practices involving trees, shrubs, flowers, mulch, and turf are irrelevant and obsolete compared to a functional and sustainable native plant ecosystem.
