A wildscape is a landscape created to provide habitat for your local wildlife. Wildscaping can be created by planting native plants and by providing wildlife with their essentials for life – food, water, shelter and a place to raise their young. Look for drought tolerant plants and other highly adapted non-invasive plants to use. Choose plants of varying heights and densities.  And remember to group plants according to their water needs. Select plants that provide seeds, nuts, nectar and berries throughout the year to ensure there is always food available for wildlife. Be sure to add a water source to your wildscape. This could be in the form of a pond or bird bath. Adding a bird feeder or bird house is also great ideas to incorporate into your wildscape. Keeping or adding a brush or rock pile can provide shelter for wildlife.
