Pink Flowers


Ahhhh, the beauty of flower gardens.  There's something about seeing vibrant colors dotting your backyard that evokes a send of relaxation and joy every time you step outside.  Well, unless there is snow, of course.  

They are also great for our beloved pollinators, the Butterflies, Bees, and Birds, yep, they love them too.  Do wiggly worms make you squirm? Hopefully not, because they are great for soil! 


Embrace your inner gardener, put on your sunhat, boots, and gloves; let’s get growing.


First, consider composting flower beds annually, as this is generally the best way to feed plants, trees, shrubs, and perennials.

By following these steps, you, too, can have a beautiful and sustainable garden that is the perfect environment for many species of pollinators. You don't have to sacrifice beauty for function, either. A little planning will ensure that your garden is lovely and healthy and provides vital resources for some of our most important ecological partners.
