Friendly Natives Plants and Design, located on a back road of the Olympic Peninsula overlooking Dabob Bay, is dedicated to helping homeowners and small project managers create, enhance and restore their habitat whether it be shoreline, meadow, wetland, woodland or backyard.
Lissa Bennett has been gardening and growing plants in the Pacific Northwest since she was a mere sprout. A lifetime of wandering the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas, enjoying the great diversity of flora and fauna therein, tending her own backyard garden patch, providing garden care for many of the beautiful homes in our special region, four years of traditional schooling at SSCC with AA degrees in Horticultural Studies and Landscape Design and Construction, and a growing concern to contribute to the health of our local and world environments has lead to the germination of this native plant nursery.
Lovingly grown on site, from seeds and specimens respectfully gathered. We offer trees, shrubs, perennials and grasses that will work well in almost any situation we have here in the Puget Sound/Western Washington area.
We are also offering formal and informal design services and garden coaching with the emphasis on using native materials, though not strictly as there are many exciting, useful and suitable exotic plants (just as in the human species) available.
