Wildlife Garden

The National Wildlife Federation recommends the use of native plants in your yard. The trees, shrubs and flowers that grow naturally in your area of the country are naturally going to be more hardy. This means fewer problems for the plants and less maintenance for you. Plants that are not in their natural environment are much more susceptible to pests and diseases. The National Wildlife Federation website has a map with the top ten native plants listed for each area of the United States to help achieve this end. Water must be provided to have a certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat. This can be as simple and inexpensive as a birdbath. Birdbaths will require cleaning and refilling every couple of days. During the warm months this will also keep mosquitoes from breeding in the water. The recommendation is to use hot soapy water or white vinegar mixed with water to scrub the birdbaths. Bleach is not recommended for use in birdbaths.
