Landscaping with Water for Wildlife - Build It & They Will Come
Water is a key component in any landscape; even small amounts will bring in a variety of wildlife. Learn how to create a variety of water features to attract birds, butterflies, and amphibians including bubbling boulder, rain garden, frog pond, bog garden, butterfly puddle, or even a vernal pool in your yard. Native plants that are appropriate to highlight the water feature will also be covered. See what animals, ranging from insects to birds to mammals, will benefit from your water landscaping.
