Attracting Birds and Butterflies to the North Coast Pacific Garden

If your garden is impeccably manicured, it's not a paradise for birds or butterflies. The garden that approximates a wild and natural environment is far more likely to catch their attention. Let nature take the lead. Choose plants that will attract them, and arrange them to suit their needs. Go easy on the chemicals, it kills them also.

Any animal's needs are simple: food, shelter (including nesting habitat), and water. Give them a sense of welcome and encourage greater numbers and varieties of them to stop by.
