Own a home? Plant native plants to mitigate climate change, provide habitat and food for pollinators

I have turned my front and back lawns into habitats for native insects. American lawns are modeled after British manor homes. Trying to achieve this archaic ideal has become so standard it’s cliche.

Tall native grasses of the Northeast were decimated to make way for smaller tropical and genetically modified smaller species which are easy to cut.

I’ve learned from untold research that trees, native plants and tall grasses that are allowed to flower provide the most food for native and migrating pollinators like bees and butterflies. Birds that do not migrate also benefit from seeds of mature grasses during the lean winter months when food is scarce.

My yard is a combination of food garden while the remaining is a native and non-native plants. Since I’ve changed from a manor house grass lawn I’ve had so many visitors to my lawn!

Spider laid it’s eggs on my American yew-Native
Native mantis on Mint (not native)

So basically, as stated in 1989’s Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.”

Visit the Lady Bird Johnson Native Plant Center for native plants in your part of the United States.
