To create a garden that will attract wildlife and birds one needs to choose a wide variety of trees and plants that fruit and flower throughout the year, so as to provide a constant supply of food and nectar. Then create these habitats within your garden. 1. Water is essential so provide a wetland with a pond or a birdbath. I often see dragonflies above our pond! 2. Sand bathing is enjoyed by birds and guineafowl so just leave a patch of soil unplanted. 3. The open area is a lawn or a meadow with wild grasses and low growing groundcovers.
