Creating a native area, and a bird and butterfly friendly habitat, requires careful planning. Often, native plants look fantastic during the flowering season, then die down to nothing for the rest of the year. Certain plants also tend to take over an entire area, so thoughtful selection is essential.
We used Arizona flagstone in this project, creating different levels and a earthy feel to the patio. Again, making sure that each section of the yard is thought out and utilized makes the area seem much larger.
