Plant a Pollinator-Friendly Container Garden
No matter where you live, pollinators — bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, moths and bats — play an essential role in ensuring that you have fresh, bountiful food to eat. In short: no pollinators, no food. Make your backyard a haven for our hardworking friends with a pollinator-friendly container garden that'll add lushness to your landscape while providing them with everything they need to keep saving the world.
A big birch tree shades this backyard in the afternoon. The yard slopes down significantly as it reaches lake's edge, so a rock garden with larger and then smaller boulders makes that transition feel more natural.
Simple, visually-interesting plantings are at once dynamic and in keeping with this home's minimalist design aesthetic.
Concrete retaining walls are just the simple foil this drought-tolerant garden needs. Tan gravel brings a touch of warmth and permeability.
