For the Birds

For avid bird lovers, a new stone patio, for the birds, a new native landscape.

This flat site is a suburban backyard backed up to a forest. The design includes native flowers, shrubs and understory trees, in which birds can nest and forage for insects, seeds, berries and nectar. All are strategically placed so as not to interrupt views from the house and the patio.

Evergreen Inkberries insure some winter greenery as well as a berry harvest. Redbuds provide the patio with some shade in addition to their spring color. This variety of 22 different plant species supplies a diverse menu for a variety of song birds throughout their feeding season.

Creating habitat for wildlife in your yard can connect you with your local ecosystem, in this case an adjacent forest, and potentially extend a wildlife corridor.
