Quick Tips

  • Use a Diversity of Plants & Grasses. Incorporate many layers of plant types:
    • Trees
    • Shrubs
    • Ground covers
    • Perennials, and
    • Lawns
  • Add Nectar & Fruit Producing Plants. These plants provide food for benefical insects, pollinators and for birds and mammals. Strive for continuous blooms.
  • Add Water, Stone Walls, Woody Debris, Nest Boxes & Feeders.
    • Water is essential to all animals. Preserve existing watery habitiats or add a new source. Doing so will attract more creatures for you to enjoy.
    • Stone walls and woody debris provide shelter, foraging sites and perching areas for birds and mammals.
    • Well tended nest boxes and feeders improve animal health and provide better viewing opportunities.
