At 657 Grand, our yard is made up of all native plants. Native plants offer tremendous benefits to the environment as they require no watering or mowing, helping to conserve water and eliminate pollution caused by a lawnmower (as well as the gas required to power one). Native plants also attract butterflies, birds and insects–including bees–which need healthy micro-habitats to thrive and help pollinate flowers in the area. While 657 Grand is in the middle of one of St. Paul’s busiest areas, this thriving native plant garden proves that one can be both a city dweller as well as environmentally conscious–a philosophy our company tries to apply to everything we do.
