Active sites are areas that have significant infrastructure for active sports or organized events. Passive sites are undeveloped and focus on the naturalness of an area. The Plant Materials program has developed products for both sites. Plants and methods for establishing raingardens and xeriscaping are used for active sites. Materials and methods are used in passive sites for restoration and establishment of native plants.
