Let Your Landscape Support Nature!

How can your landscaping in Texas benefit wildlife and nature?

Try Wildscaping!  Wildscaping is the designing of your landscape to benefit and attract birds and butterflies as well as other types of wildlife.  This landscaping concept  can provide food, water and shelter.  Food is provided through using plants native to your areas.  Water can be provided through a beautiful water feature that will welcome many members of the wildlife community.  Wildscaping can help offset the disappearance of wildlife habitat caused by over development.

Smart choices to plant include Red Rocks-a plant that provides nourishment for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.  Blanco Crabapples provides pollen and nectar to insects and fruit for migrating songbirds.  The crabapple trees have beautiful spring blooms and they provide lovely leaf color in the fall.

Burroughs Landscaping can assist you with a plan to add beauty to your landscaping plan and to help preserve the natural heritage of the lovely Hill Country of Texas. You don’t have to wildscape your entire yard, but consider incorporating wildscaping into your plan by adding a section of your back yard or even to just a few pots on a patio or near a new water feature.  Adding natural trees, shrubs, grasses and wildflower species to our communities also reduces the use of herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, also saving money and maintenance.
