Minnesotsans have been able to enjoy lush gardens thanks to growing a thriving garden, a new report says.
A report released Monday by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources shows that the city of Minneapolis is one of the most active landscape areas in the country.
Gardeners in the city planted over 100,000 plants in 2014, and this year’s numbers were up to 1.4 million.
A typical Minneapolis landscape is dominated by oak and maple trees, but the city is also home to more than 20 native species, including a variety of native herbs, shrubs and flowers.
The report says the city has become a leader in the landscape landscape because it has more natural beauty than other cities, such as Salt Lake City.
The number of native plants in Minneapolis has more than doubled in the last decade, to 4.7 million.
The city is home to at least 40 different species, according to the report.
Gardening is one aspect of the city’s sustainability, said Mark Tompkins, executive director of the Minnesota Landscape Alliance.
Groups have been helping to support the growth of gardens and landscapes in the Twin Cities, he said.
The Garden of Eden is a popular tourist attraction and garden on the edge of downtown Minneapolis, which hosts the Minnesota Museum of Art.
It features more than 150 gardens and gardens of all shapes and sizes.
The Garden of the Gods features a 2,200-square-foot pavilion featuring a series of 30 gardens.
