Add Natural Elegance and Beauty To Your Space With a Butterfly Garden
Backyard Science Class
Kids don’t want to learn about butterflies in a book, they want to grow up with them in their backyard!
With a butterfly garden, you can provide a haven for butterflies to call home, while also enabling them to do their part in the plant reproduction cycle. A beautiful plant paradise is the best way to attract butterflies. Butterflies are a member of the pollinator population and are needed for plant reproduction.
Whether you live in a rural, suburban, or urban setting, creating a butterfly habitat brings beauty and sustainability right to your yard and garden.
When Should You Plant a Butterfly Garden?
A successful butterfly garden must include the appropriate seasonal, native plants. Butterflies love summer flowers but don’t do well in winter.
This creates the healthiest environment possible. Without the proper plants, the garden won’t attract butterflies.
We use a variety of plant species in our designs, including:
- Fire cracker
Should a butterfly garden be in sun or shade?
Location is also important. Butterfly gardens must be placed in a sunny location. Ideally, the garden should get no less than 5-6 hours of sun each day on average. Butterflies need the sun to warm themselves. They won’t be attracted to an area that is overly shaded or windy.
If your flowers aren’t blooming in the summer time, it’s a signal butterflies won’t be interested. There’s no nectar for them to feed on!
Instead of spending hours researching plants for your butterfly garden, hire a professional instead. We have years of experience in creating beautiful butterfly gardens that attract pollinators year after year.
