"If we designed our buildings the way we design our gardens, with only aesthetics in mind, they would fall down. Just as buildings need structures... to hold the graceful arches and beautiful lines of fine architecture in place, our gardens need native plants to support a diverse and balanced food web essential to all sustainable ecosystems." — Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home
