Rate this:
Picture your yard decorated with luxuriant flower beds, well-placed shrubs, stately trees, and perhaps even a tiny fountain, its waters cascading into a charming pool. Now into this scene add an agile hummingbird hovering by a radiant bloom, a frog sunning itself on a lily pad, a chipmunk stuffing its cheeks with seeds and nuts, and hosts of butterflies and bees vying for blossoms of sweet alyssum and blue lobelia - all in your own backyard. This book will show you how to creat such a garden - a haven that not only pleases the eye but also provides nourishment and shelter to numerous birds, butterflies, mammals and other creatures. This book contains all the information you need to create your own naturalist's garden, including how to plan your garden; which plants to choose to attract the wildlife you desire; and how to maintain your garden and keep it healthy without using chemicals.
