You can make your garden and landscape more appealing to wildlife and beneficial pollinators while still enjoying the benefits and beauty of ornamental plants. Learn what plants to choose to attract birds, bees and butterflies, while discouraging deer from treating your yard like an all-you-can-eat buffet.
