Backyards can be a haven for a whole range of small wild creatures, and by using residential landscape design that is sympathetic to your surroundings; you can easily create a paradise for visiting birds.
At Rosehill Gardens, we take great pride in our understanding of the Kansas City wildlife that allows our experts to create a mesmerizing surrounding that will bring color and vitality to your yard while looking after the needs of our feathered friends.
It’s during the coldest seasons that birds need the most support from your landscaped backyard. One of the first aspects our experts will look at is how they can use trees and shrubs to create natural layers.
Doing this provides areas at different heights for birds to hide from the weather and to eat with minimal risk of becoming food themselves.
By placing large trees around the edge of your yard or garden, followed by smaller trees and shrubs in the end, we can create a canopy and undergrowth effect.
Food is usually in short supply during the colder months, so an additional way to encourage birds to come into your yard is to plant trees and bushes that produce nuts and seeds.
Once birds know there is a ready supply of food, they are more likely to return to your yard many times. Evergreen trees are ideal for this purpose.
Our experts also recommend adding shrubs and trees that bear fruit during the winter months. Dogwood will provide food for birds while its fabulous colors will add to the winter beauty of your landscape.
