Welcome to our wildlife habitat garden

Our yard, located in Central New York, is more than just a place to sit and relax, more than just a garden.

It's a habitat where birds, butterflies, bees, toads, and other little creatures can find food, water, cover, and a place to raise their young; a place where there are no pesticides or herbicides used that would be unhealthy for these creatures or for people.

It's a place that's full of life—a very exciting place to be.

It's the kind of place you, too, can have in your own yard, whether you have an apartment balcony, a city lot, or acreage in the country.

We invite you to explore our website by:

We hope the experiences and information we share in this website help you create your own wildlife habitat garden and will inspire you to become a steward of your own little piece of the earth, helping preserve a healthy planet for future generations, both human and non-human.

The National Wildlife Federation certified our yard as Backyard Wildlife Habitat #27815 in December 2000.

In 2006, Monarch Watch certified our yard as Monarch Waystation #581.

Wild Ones: Native Plants, Natural Landscapes inspires and informs our landscape decisions.
