Abandoned Properties

sirhackAugust 7, 2012

I am in the process of working with some abandoned faculties in Indianapolis, IN. I was looking for some fast growing native plants that are low maintenance. Any suggestions?

Perennials? Shrubs? Trees? Grasses?
Sun? Shade?

Don't mow for a year, and you will have plenty of fast growing, maintenance-free plants! Really, though, are you wanting trees, shrubs, perennials, etc? A few specifics on the site would help. What kind of soil, and how much pollution? Are we talking downtown, or industrial park, or suburbs?
