Amy Milgrim’s Cherry Hill home islush with plant life, even early in thespring season.Her gardening skills have been honedover the last 20 years. She has been ableto minimize the dirty work by under-standing the environment and fillingthe ground with native plant species.She is a member of the SustainableCherry Hill gardening task force, whereshe shares the benefits of native plantgardening with the group, including thelack of excessive dirty work.With a branch of the Cooper Riverand Woodcrest Country Club behind herhouse, Milgrim pulled out much of thegrass on her lawn and planted a non-in-vasive ground cover instead.“Instead of having a bunch of mulch,we did vinca,” she said. “We have dog-woods and the river birch. If things dowell, then they do well. If they don’t,they don’t. I don’t cry over them.”Shrubs, perennials, wild geraniumsand blueberry bushes are plantedthroughout the lawn, successfully dry-ing up the wetness, as they are the“right plants for the right place,” shesaid.The walkway to her front door is sim-ilar to a dry riverbed.“It’s so shady,” she said. “There’s al-ways something new and blooming.”In the backyard, a brick patio mini-mizes the amount of grass. Also foundare “volunteers.” Pointing to a dogwood,Milgrim said that birds planted the seedand she decided to keep it, successfully
