Herbaceous plants as food source

Herbaceous plant from old

Excerpt: "The white-tailed deer is dependent upon the Plant Kingdom for the food it needs for growth and development. Management of this food resource, which is one aspect of habitat management, is an important part of any wildlife program. It is especially critical for proper management of this large herbivore, since deer have the ability to impact the habitat on which they live. The adverse impact that deer can exert on a habitat will disrupt the entire ecological balance of the habitat. In other words deer can create problems for all the other species of wildlife depending on that habitat. If habitat is to be managed for deer, the deer manager must first have a good understanding of the plants that deer utilize for food." This checklist was developed by David Moreland for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  — Gwinnettdailypost.com
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
