In a world that is becoming less rural, our backyards become an oasis that can provide critical habitat for much of the life around us. Our choices in management and plant selection can make the difference in insect diversity, pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. A garden is more than plants. The life that swarms into a holistic garden makes our experience more than just a tapestry of color. Our choices can also lessen the burden on strained resources such as water use. Learn about exciting new and underused woody plant choices that can enhance life in your landscape. The results at the South Carolina Botanical Garden after employing these techniques have been impressive, with an increase in bird and small mammal species.
