The use of regional, native plants (Encore Azaleas, Camellias, Southern Palmettos, and Magnolias) were specified because they are best adapted to local conditions so they can thrive with the least care/water and they provide a sense of place.
Pine straw mulch was used because pine trees drop their needles, or straw, naturally, and these are raked up and baled for use as mulch without having to harm a single tree. This makes pine straw a renewable mulch source that is part of the natural cycle.
