This article will feature advice on planting a sanctuary in your garden which attracts birds and/or butterflies. Remember that bright colors are magnets for both species. Search for plants that are easy to care for and are nectar rich. Butterflies and birds are not just pretty they are effective pollinators. Tip: try to plant things that bloom at varying times of the season to keep them coming throughout the growing season. Also keep in mind various heights from the ground to the tree tops and everything in between.
Attracting birds such as the robin has the advantage of of controlling the insect population who would otherwise be destructive to your garden. Keep in mind planting things that offer berries and or seeds for the birds to eat. It’s a win/win situation. Be sure to offer a water feature because these creatures need to drink and bath. Water is actually one of the best attractors for wildlife possible. So keep them coming back by offering a pond or birdbath and put it in the shade to avoid too much evaporation. Purchase something attractive to humans as well. There are many lovely ones to choose from.
