For my first location I chose an area by my house where lots of cars drive on the grass. It is not an ideal place for plants to grow because of it. The topography of the land is also not ideal for plants becuase it gets too much rain due to the dip in the land.
The second location is near Bierman and is ideal for plant diversity because of the ideal conditions. Not only does it get great sunlight with a mixture of both sun and shade, but it also gets fertilized by the U of M. That helps the plants, grass, and trees with with stand harsh conditions, and remain strong and healthy.
