Landscape Alternatives for Invasive Plants of the Midwest on the App Store on iTunes

Charles T. Bargeron

Description

Everybody loves a beautiful garden. Gardeners love plants that are adaptable, tough, and fast-growing. It’s even better if that plant produces showy fruits that attract birds or is an annual that self seeds, so it doesn’t need to be replanted every year. Unfortunately, many of these plant traits desirable to gardeners can also increase the likelihood that a plant jumps the garden fence and invades natural areas.

Invasive plants threaten our environment and economy. They pose an enormous threat to our native plants, animals, and ecosystems, and they cost the United States approximately $35 billion per year (www.invasivespecies.gov).

Although invasive plants are almost always not native to a region, it is important to note that most non-native species are not invasive. We use the following definitions.

Native (indigenous): A species that was present in North American prior to European settlement or has arrived since through natural means of dispersal.

Non-native (exotic, alien, introduced): A species that was brought to North America by humans, either deliberately or accidentally.

Invasive: A non-native whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health (from Federal Executive Order 13112).

People have introduced invasive species both accidentally and deliberately. This app focuses on plant species that are used ornamentally and have become invasive in at least part of the Midwest. Cultivars or hybrids produced from these species may or may not be invasive. In the few published cultivar evaluation studies, some cultivars prove to be more invasive than the parent species, others less or not invasive. We lack research about cultivar invasiveness for many of these species. When we have good evidence about a problematic or relatively benign cultivar, we list those specifically.

Suggested alternatives include both native species and non-native species that currently show no signs of becoming invasive.

Rain Harvest on the App Store on iTunes

© 2014 RealSimple Software

Description

Have you ever wondered how much rain falls on your roof during a typical rain storm? Use this simple rain harvesting calculator to find out. You will be amazed at how much water can be collected from your roof (or any other surface) during even the shortest of rain storms. Why not collect and store this wonderful natural resource and put it to good use later to water your organic garden?

A simple calculator interface allows for the input of:

Catchment surface area in square feet or square meters
Rainfall in inches or millimeters
Surface efficiency as a percentage
Number of collection points

The final result is then presented in total gallons or liters of collected runoff. Gallons or liters per collection point is also calculated when more than one collection point is entered into the calculator.

Happy Rain Harvesting!
