Why Have a Home Garden?
Home garden? Biodiversity? What connects the two?
Landscape home gardening, when done conscientiously, can have a valuable impact on the ecosystem. Through careful consideration of what plant life to nurture in your home garden, what landscape features and accessories to add, you can provide water, food, and shelter to our avian friends, interesting insects, and other wildlife who keeps the balance of the ecosystem intact. Building and tending to your home garden, not only for aesthetic or therapeutic purposes but also for its functionality, does more good than you can imagine.
For instance, choosing native plants and trees to grow in your garden makes the growing process easier. It encourages natural pollination, not to mention they are well-adjusted and suited to your area’s climate and weather. Adding a water landscape to your garden, perhaps a small pond or something of the sort invites other wildlife to come and take a rest or drink. They can even take shelter and breed in the water or even in your shadiest tree branches! Don’t you just love the idea of having nature right at home?
