Visit our WildbyDesign demonstration garden...

Our wildlife garden habitat in full summer bloom.  Every year we see at least two hatchings of Sparrows and a variety of Finches.  Swallowtails lay eggs on the dill and the caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies.  Our flowers are covered with Honey, Bumble, Miner, and many other native bees daily.  All in all, it’s feast for our garden friends.  After fall, our butterflies crawl into the leaf matter left in the garden and wait out the cold of winter.  Just like us, they’re ready for the first warm days of spring to begin their cycle once again.  If you want to see what you can expect by building a wildlife habitat in your yard, stop by our demonstration garden in Lyons.  Our sustainable landscape design is both water wise and friendly to birds, bees and butterflies.
