Black & Decker Outdoor Home

The spectacular color and motion of honeybees, hummingbirds, songbirds, and butterflies adds a breathtaking dimension to any garden.
This book will show readers how to design and maintain a landscape that will attract these "moving flowers" to the yard. Unlike similar books, which are mostly just catalogs of bird and butterfly species, this new entry to the "Black & Decker Outdoor Home" series focuses on designing, planting, and caring for a landscape that will attract and sustain honeybees, birds and butterflies. Also unique are the more than two dozen building projects, such as a post-mounted bird house and more.
Gardens for Birds, Hummingbirds & Butterflies includes identification photos of dozens of species of common birds and butterflies, and the plant encyclopedia includes 60 plants that are guaranteed to attract birds, hummingbirds, and butterflies. It also lists trees and grasses attractive to birds and butterflies as sources of nectar, seeds, fruits, and shelter. Features USDA Plant Hardiness Zone maps for all of North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. It also contains a table of common U.S. and metric system measurements, although U.S. measurements are used throughout the book.
This great references includes dozens of step-by-step projects in addition to information on planning and caring for your garden.
