Monroe Clinic-Brodhead's Prairie Landscape

Monroe Clinic-Brodhead's Prairie Landscape

"Exposure to natural open spaces has been shown to provide numerous health benefits, making it an ideal choice for a healthcare facility landscape."   

--  From "The Benefits of Prairie for the City of Brodhead"

 

A prairie is a place of growth - for native plants, flowers, butterflies, birds and more. That's why, in 2013, Monroe Clinic took advantage of the abundant open space surrounding Monroe Clinic-Brodhead to implement this type of landscape.

What makes a prairie landscape special?

The benefits of a prairie include:

  • Environmentally friendly - no need to use pesticides or chemical landscape treatments
  • Beautiful native growth of wildflowers and plants
  • Attraction of native wildlife such as hummingbirds and butterflies
  • Elimination of irrigation, saving water
  • Rainwater infiltration and control, improving the quality of groundwater

Watch for further improvements we have planned for the prairie at Monroe Clinic-Brodhead.
