Hoek Van Holland
(pronounced: hook vän hôl´änt) landscaping values native ecosystems over traditional ornamental landscapes that require “mow and blow” maintenance. Promoting native landscapes yields more vigorous and sustainable ecosystems that have numerous net environmental benefits that:
Soil Regeneration - Minimizing the loss of topsoil, retaining more carbon than is depleted, boosting biodiversity and maintaining proper water and nutrient cycling
Support Local Wildlife - Promote polinators such as hummingbirds, native bees, butterflies, moths and bats
Low Maintenance - Once established, native plants require less care than ornamentals
Improve natural drainage - Carefully chosen natural plants absorb water better than others. By placing these in strategic locations, we can protect low lying structures/foundations.

Health Indicator - Mushrooms are natural indicator of healthy soil for trees and other vegetation
Enrich microbiology of soil - Mycorrhizal filaments of fungi also produce compounds that glue soils together and improve their structure and porosity to enhance root growth. In addition, mycorrhizae in the soil have been found to suppress soil-borne pathogens and protect plants from root diseases
Clean-up crew - Fungi and bacteria digest nutrients for for nearby plant matter
Soil repairation - Landscapes that have been stripped of top soil or otherwise degraded can be improved with the addition of mycorrizae to the soil. Over-watering and over-fertilizaiton and use of fungicides can eliminate mycorrhizae usefulness or even kill the fungi
