Contrasting Front Yards: Turf-only v. Pollinator Heaven

I love this video by Beltsville wildlife gardener Marcia Van Horn.  (Viewable on desk and laptops, but not on mobile devices.)  I met Marcia through the video she created off Greenbelt’s Less Lawn Garden Tour.  Next, she volunteered to help me improve the videos I’m making of DC’s public gardens.

Marcia’s gardening is all about the birds and the insects they need.  In addition to growing lots of great plants, she maintains 15 bird feeders in this garden, and tends nestboxes, too.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
