Wildlife landscaping for the San Francisco Bay Region. A delightful little guide, recently revised, to help you transform your own backyard, patio, or community site into a healthy home for a wondrous array of fascinating creatures. Habitat gardens are not only beautiful and rewarding, but critical to the survival of many species in our ecosystem. Creating a garden full of life provides the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the web of life upon which we all depend.
By offering easy-to-grow natives and non-natives appropriate to our climate, the author sets the stage for you to discover the intricate inter-relationships of plants, birds, butterflies, beneficial insects, and other animals. Whether you are a novice needing help in getting started or a seasoned gardener looking for ideas, you'll find yourself referring to The Habitat Garden Book over and over again.
