Make Your Yard Come Alive

I'm glad you visited my website on landscaping. My name is Lucia Nash. I have a very busy and exciting garden. The feeder is always active with sparrows. We put a couple hummingbird feeders out and they visit us every summer. There are many types of birds that visit my yard.

The answer to that question is difficult to sum up in a few sentences, so I decided it was better to write blog posts on how to create a great yard.
