Sustainability – Composting & Native Plants

Through the Oakwood Community Center, the city periodically offers educational programs on topics including composting and use of native plants.

The City of Oakwood encourages the use of vegetation throughout the City to maximize ecological and aesthetic benefits while respecting existing community values regarding landscaping to include well-maintained yards, preservation of sight lines, compatibility with existing structures, and public safety.

Ecological benefits of “managed natural landscapes” include enhancement of pollinator support habitat, stormwater  management, carbon sequestration, erosion control, and preservation of biodiversity.

Before designing a managed natural landscape, property owners should review the city’s Landscape Management regulations in Chapter 551 of the Codified Ordinances.

To learn more about native plants, including how to begin planting with natives, check out this Native Plant Guide with helpful links and ideas.
