Habitat Garden


Drought-tolerant habitat garden, front yard

We transformed this generic front yard from ho-hum lawn to a delightful bird and butterfly habitat haven.  Colorful salvias and dramatic firecracker bushes are an eye-catching magnet for hummingbirds, butterflies and bees, and the fruit of the coffeeberry will draw birds while providing a drought-tolerant and evergreen backdrop year-round.  A stone wall provides rustic charm to match the existing stone work on the home as well as serve as erosion control on this sloped property. Just a few months post-install the owner reported a resident hummingbird as well as valley carpenter bees.
