Native plants and special design features can create a beautiful landscape that also creates a haven for interesting birds and butterflies. You can start by simply putting up a birdbath or planting a fruit-bearing native shrub in your garden. It’s not difficult to be successful, and you’ll be amazed at what you’ll attract while also conserving water.
