Sustainable Landscape Designs Utilizing Native Species to Increase Pollinator Habitats.
This LEGACY publication provides the Department of Defense (DoD) with guidance on developing native plantings that provide food sources and shelter for pollinators and the plant lists are inclusive of plantings for all the different groups of pollinators. The main objective of this project is to provide to DoD land managers with tools they can use to provide planting areas for our native pollinator species and increase pollinator interactions. This is meant to be used on Military installations in 10 different parts of the country. DoD installations across CONUS was overlaid on a GIS map of Bailey’s Ecoregions, and 10 regions were chosen from 35 ecoregions across the United States. For each ecoregion there is a map, a residential landscape plan, a planting island plan and a seedmix using native plants. The landscape plans are largely focused on the cantonment areas where the base housing, installation buildings and suitable open space for plantings would be found. Habitat information and nesting designs for pollinator species is also included in the document.
