At Gardens of Babylon Landscapes, we strongly believe in leaving the weeds for the bees, using natural methods of plant control, and encouraging pollinator growth! We refrain from using any products containing neonicotinoids and we create landscapes that bloom throughout the season to allow for an ample food source for our local pollinators.
Every now and then I'm asked for landscape design tips. I came across an article in Better Homes and Gardens and thought it worth sharing. For those starting out in this wide world of exterior artistry...welcome to the rest of your life. Once this bug bites you, it usually doesn't let go, at least for not for awhile anyways. It can be a blessing, however, since instead of itching and swelling, it can cause your property value to increase. Imagine that. Plus, if you do some of the landscaping yourself, you'll be burning calories, reducing stress, and coming home to a more beautiful setting. Not too bad eh?
