This design features a few plants unique to this plan. Plant golden-eyed grass and camas close to the path and lawn so their flowers and iris-like leaves can be easily enjoyed. Wapato and hard stemmed bulrush will readily spread along the shoreline. Lady fern and slough sedge can also spread aggressively so this landscape will change with time. Pacific crabapple will attract wildlife with its fruit.
