When I set up my backyard garden I started from scratch. The first thing I did was build a pond. A small pond. Then my wife and I would add a small garden section every year. Working in a small section makes it easier and the task doesn’t seem so overwhelming.
One of our goals was to attract butterflies, birds and wildlife. We have succeeded and I’ll pass along some gardening tips to help you create or grow your own backyard garden.
My grandson loves the backyard and is always catching toads and frogs and has caught a couple butterflies. In the picture here he was 2 years old but as I write this, he is 8 and continues to love the backyard.
