​Our landscape-gardening focus depends on native plants to attract native birds, bees, and butterflies, to make the garden interesting. Certain insects, including butterflies, and bees are attracted to the plants and flowers. A variety of other critters, particularly birds, visit the insects for food. The use of synthetic chemicals is avoided, both for plant and insect control. The garden is 7-years old and evolving and improving every year. This natural Native garden is an ongoing learning process.
