We transform new and existing landscapes using Florida native plants that provide a natural habitat for birds, butterflies . If you want more birds in your yard, you first have to invite the insects. So a bird-friendly yard is one that doesn't use landscape-wide poisons of any kind.

We transform new and existing landscapes using Florida native plants that provide a natural habitat for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators. We specialize in freeze-proof and drought-tolerant plants, and the replacement of St. Augustine grass with eco-friendly, low-maintenance native ground cover. The non-poisoned yard also has many other benefits including healthier soil and a cleaner environment for you and your family. 11 December at 04:27 ·.

Re-Creating Native Ecosystems in Your Yard. by Joseph M. Schaefer, George Walden Tanner. Published April 1998 by University Press of Florida.

As the natural landscape becomes more humanized, the habitat for many wildlife species has been lost or degraded.  In a clear, step-by-step format, this book tells how to create a wildlife-friendly landscape that takes into account both people and nature.  The authors' theme--"put back what you don't need"--allows the gardener to reduce maintenance costs while providing a habitat that offers wildlife the essentials of food, cover, water, and space. *The book addresses such fundamental questions as which ecosystem is appropriate to a particular piece of property and how to determine which species use the property. *It discusses how to consider soils, drainage patterns, utility lines, adjacent land uses, and existing native vegetation. *It describes how to prepare a base map; add plant and non-plant elements such as birdhouses, burrows, and tree frog houses; and calculate the cost of materials. *It tells how to install, maintain, and evaluate the new yard. Throughout, helpful drawings, tables, and worksheets illustrate the procedures.  Appendixes include an extensive list of native plants by ecosystem type, contacts with public agencies and private conservation organizations, lists of field guides and related books, and a table that shows which wildlife species use various ecosystems.Joe Schaefer is associate professor and George Tanner is professor of wildlife ecology and conservation at the University of Florida.  Both have written popular articles and books that apply scientific knowledge to conservation actions.

Although well organized and helpful, I think it would have been better for me to consult some books that have more in depth info re the native plants. There are not as many pictures as I would have liked. Once one has a better understanding of the plants, this would be very good as a workbook for planning a native garden. It is good in describig the different habitats.

A well written book that should be universal for most southern landscape applications. The author covers most topics fairly well.
