The typical garden may be “neat as a pin” but, to some, “ugly as sin” and pretty darned unfriendly to wildlife. I’m not saying that a garden has to be untidy, but so many of our maintenance tasks are just plain fussy and have the potential to be highly detrimental to the very critters we’ve invited into the garden.

Learn more about my love of untidy wildlife gardens and why at the Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens website where over 30 of us contribute educational and informative columns to guide and encourage wildlife gardeners, so they don’t make the same mistakes we did.

  1. Pat, this is such a great reminder to not undo all of our hard work to create welcoming habitat for wildlife by being overzealous with our fall garden chores. I’m so thrilled to have you on the Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens team! Thanks for sharing with us 🙂
