Think Pollinators and Plants
Sustainable Landscaping in Bergen County
As a landscaping general contractor, I’m naturally constantly trying to incorporate “green” ideas into my designs and projects. This is the only “place” we all have to call home, so we ought to take care of what God has given to us and protect the environment thereof.
Butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, worms, starfish, mussels, and crabs are but a few of the millions of invertebrates at the heart of a healthy environment. Invertebrates build the stunning coral reefs of our oceans; they are essential to the reproduction of most flowering plants, including many fruits, vegetables, and nuts; and they are food for birds, fish, and other animals. Yet invertebrate populations are often imperiled by human activities and rarely accounted for in mainstream conservation.
POLLINATOR PLANTS for the Mid-Atlantic regionfrom the Xerces Society and take a few ideas from there.
