Design Hacks: Bees Need Bloom, Birds Need Habitat

Updated: Jan 19, 2020

In 2019 there was the news about 30% decline in bird populations, then our hives where raided by someone's hungry bees early fall.

It' time to rethink the suburban yard, starting with the easy stuff:

  • Avoid chemicals and blowing: More on organic lawn care available on this site. Common lawn weeds support insects and pollinators

Rethink the suburban yard, one step at a time.

  • Native perennials to feed beneficial insects.

  • Large flowering shrubs shelter and feed birds

  • Shade trees to cool, soak up carbon and storm water, provide habitat

  • Leave your leaves to shelter beneficial insects and other critters
