Our own backyard is the best place to start learning and practicing environmentally friendly landscaping. It's not all that difficult and it doesn't have to be a large expensive project. Some backyards may only require adding a few shrubs, flowers and birdbaths. The rewards of having a natural environment in your own backyard and enjoying the wildlife and birds will be well worth the effort. The National Wildlife Federation will recognize the work involved to make a backyard an environmentally friendly wildlife habitat. Once the five steps to become certified have been completed, you can become a member of the National Wildlife Federation.

Wildlife Control

Trees are an important element in a wildlife habitat. They provide shelter for a variety of wildlife species including birds and squirrels. Before planting trees it's best to conduct research or consult with a landscape specialist to determine which species are best suited for your yard. Shrubs are one of the most convenient elements to plant, as they require little maintenance and provide excellent shelter for a wide variety of wildlife that lives on or near the ground. In order to provide the highest level of shelter for your chosen wildlife, avoid the temptation to prune the lower branches. Doing so will expose your wildlife to predators, making them easy prey. How you arrange the plants, trees and shrubs is just as important as the species. In order to attract wildlife, you will want to plant these elements around the edge of your yard. A good example of the perfect wildlife habitat is that found along the edges of a natural stream. There you will find a variety of plants, shrubs, and trees which are layered and follow the natural curves of the stream. If possible, plan a visit to a local stream and explore the area.
