Naturalization is an ecologically-based approach to landscape management used to transform highly-maintained land to a more natural condition.
For more than 20 years, Edmonton has been reverting sections of open space to a more natural state. Many of these areas are along arterial and collector roadways, around stormwater ponds and in low-use parkland. These areas are not part of the regular mowing cycle, and may contain trees, shrubs or wildflowers.
