State Employees’ Credit Union in North Carolina has teamed up with North Carolina Botanical Gardens, as well as architects O’Brien Atkins, to develop landscaping templates for SECU branches.

The idea came from SECU member Tom Earnhardt who created the television program, Exploring North Carolina.

The templates will only be using North Carolina native plants.

“Few places on this planet have the extraordinary diversity of plants found here in North Carolina–from the spruce-fir forests in our mountains to live oaks and palm trees on our southeastern coast. It’s always seemed strange to me that some businesses, and even towns, often plant the same non-native trees over and over again,” Earnhardt says.

The projects at the SECU branches will be located in three geographical regions – mountains, piedmont and coastal plains.
