Clever Gardening Technique

Wild Woods Please
Allow a hidden back corner of your garden to go wild for the benefit of the birds. Birds prefer to nest in thickets and tangled areas to protect their babies from predators such as blue jays and crows. By allowing roses, berries, and other thorny shrubs to grow thick and wild, you will provide habitat for creatures that will help rid your garden of insect pests. Provide a bird bath and keep it clean and filled.
