It's no secret that plants are known to have a positive effect on a person's mood and disposition since greenery sprouts great mental health benefits. With that in mind, as well as to remind individuals to continue to shelter-in-place and practice social distancing, a coalition of interior plantscapers recently launched a #StayPlanted initiative to remind you to stay "planted" at home.

Native plants and special design features can create a beautiful landscape that also creates a haven for interesting birds and butterflies. You can start by simply putting up a birdbath or planting a fruit-bearing native shrub in your garden. It’s not difficult to be successful, and you’ll be amazed at what you’ll attract while also conserving water.

The Presa Street Community Garden just got a boost and a spruce-up from various fraternities and sororities from Trinity University.Besides weeding and pruning back old plants, the group created new paths in the garden and fixed older paths. They also spent time cleaning out and organizing a storage shed filled with old planters, gardening tools and supplies for signage used to disguingish plants.Lettuce, sage and rosemary are already growing and ready for harvesting in different plots. The garden is located on South Presa Street, in the Lavaca neighborhood.
