Low Water Gardening
Xeriscape means "dry scene". This garden is sunny and hot in summer and windy year-round. But these plants get watered only once or twice a month in our dry summer.
Gardening to Attract Birds
Our organization is dedicated to helping gardeners and nature enthusiasts create beautiful, thriving gardens, including what plants to include to attract birds to your garden. The plant list below is a good place to start.
Creating Informal Beauty
Cottage gardens use informal design, dense plantings and a wide mixture of ornamental and edible plants. They demonstrate a healthy garden ecosystem as the diversity of plant types, heights, flowering times, colors and fragrances play a role in attracting pollinators and controlling pests.
Deer Resistant Gardening
Making an attractive garden that deer avoid requires flexibility in plant choices and some experimentation. But whether in sun or shade, a deer resistant garden can take the frustration out of co-existing with neighborhood deer.
This is a garden to cultivate wonder, where all plants are safe to touch, smell, and examine. Please do! Children of all ages can learn and experience awe looking closely at something. Curiosity is fun! Watch the plants grow up each season. Look for learning engagement posts.
