encore date: December 22, 2016
original air date: October 8, 2016
Trees do lots more than give us shade and boughs for nesting birds. Native trees provide year-long habitat for pollinators and other beneficial creatures. Eva Van Dyke from Barton Springs Nursery picks options, large and small, that contribute to our backyard wildlife watch. Get Eva’s native tree and plant list. On tour, Anne Bellomy took out lawn for drought-tough and wildlife friendly dimension. Need to replace some lawn or fill in under trees? Daphne’s got the answer with water thrifty Berkeley sedge. With leaves falling, she answers “Is it okay to rake leaves directly onto beds?” John picks the right watering can for the job inside or out.
