Landscaping for Wildlife
Making Necessary Changes Over Time and More Resources

landscaping You have made a large investment in time and money, but don’t expect immediate change. It may take several years for plants to mature and produce seeds and berries. It may take some time for wildlife to find or adjust to your newly landscaped yard or nest boxes.

Just like investing in the stock market, watch your investment carefully and make changes. Swallows may prefer a nest box on a different side of your house, and plants may also respond to different locations. If you have planted trees or large shrubs, they may offer new challenges and opportunities as they grow larger. Nature doesn’t stand still, and you should be flexible too.
