Make plans now to garden with habitat in mind - Englewood Herald
Resources for information are plentiful: public gardens (Hudson Gardens, Chatfield Farms, Denver Botanic Gardens) … public parks, nurseries, county extension services, garden clubs and more, depending on how one wishes to access information.
Of course, NO pesticide is a cardinal rule here, which may result in some chewed-on leaves and blossoms, but hungry birds will consume those insects if a garden invites them to hang around.
An added attraction is the host of migrating birds that pass by in summer and fall. I really believe they remember a spot that was welcoming. Keep binoculars and bird book handy near a window and teach kids to enjoy "let's look it up."
Start with a bit of research and perhaps a particular corner of your yard. How much sun is there? Is the soil reasonably workable? Perhaps soil should be tested if the property is new to you.
Check a local nursery, where employees know what is what - and where a proposed purchase will grow happily - and choose a few shrubs that will provide berries (Western sandcherry, elderberry, one of several currants, wild rose) - see lists on the CSU Extension site and that of the Native Plant Society.
If the property is new, a careful consideration of trees is in order and soil amendment will no doubt be necessary. If there are none, start one or two trees if possible-they are slow to mature.
The City of Littleton holds an annual sale. See website to order.) Of course, if there are already a bunch of trees, get acquainted with them and any particular needs they might have.
A selection of native perennials will mix well with some colorful annuals to attract pollinators and brighten a gardener's flower bed - or pots. Garden club members and other neighbors usually are happy to share plants once established and may want to suggest favorites that do well in your immediate vicinity.
Beware of what are considered "aggressive" plants - those that want to take over a garden (think mint - put a barrier around it!)
Learn when a particular variety blooms, color and size and plan placement. There's lots of help out there online and in print, as well as at your local nursery.
Pay particular attention to predicted future size and shape of trees and shrubs. We've all seen huge evergreens smashed up against a house! A native shrub that provides handsome leaves, nice flowers and, later, berries will be a good investment as you water, fertilize and talk to it.
Consider the native Oregon grape/holly with its evergreen leaves, yellow blooms and berries, for example, or chokecherry and know that birds will plant more of them where they wish, once the food source is established. (You may disagree on avian placement.)
If establishment of a Certified Wildlife Habitat appeals, see information on the NWF website. Application forms are available and there is a $20 registration fee. Which also provides a subscription to the nice NWF magazine.
For an additional $30, one can obtain an aluminum sign for your yard (or there's a pricier wall plaque - but I'd prefer to invest in plants.)
Low-water plants are the way to go, versus those that require daily watering.
Some communities regulate landscape appearance, so be familiar with rules in your neighborhood, if any.
