Many gardeners are becoming interested in not only designing an aesthetically beautiful and relaxing space to enjoy the outdoors but want to create an environment that is also beneficial to pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. Incorporating native plants and designing gardens to include natural features that provide food and shelter throughout the year can increase the buzz and birdsong which enhances time spent in the garden.
Join Master Gardener and ecologist Kevin Kavanagh who will cover a number of design features to benefit nature in the home landscape. These begin with selecting native plants that not only feed pollinators in summer but are attractive to birds in winter, using conifer patches to provide places of shelter, using leaf litter effectively, and incorporating natural features like old logs into shade gardens. These and other easy steps will help gardeners bring nature home.
