Wildlife Haven Garden Plan
This garden includes plants that provide food and shelter for wildlife. Nectar plants for butterflies and berries and seeds for the birds will keep some winged friends coming back for more all year round.

With these factors in mind, we’ve designed a front-entry garden for a newer home. In addition to perennials and shrubs that bloom in spring, summer and fall, we chose plants with winter interest.

Featured plants include serviceberry, purple coneflower, perennial geraniums, butterfly bush, garden phlox and other great plants.
