Wildlife Habitat, Menlo Park


A bubbling, two-tier water fountain creates pleasing ambient sound, and a lovely focal point from inside the home as well as outside in the garden. Wildlife appreciate a visit to bathe and drink, and the California native currant (Ribes sanguineum), beside the water feature will provide food for a variety of wildlife, lovely flowers in early spring, and spectacular fall foliage.

A flagstone path meanders through this newly planted native California garden in Menlo Park, CA.
California Wild Grape planted against a sturdy trellis softens the home’s stucco facade, provides spectacular color in the fall and tasty grapes which attract wildlife and humans alike. California Bush Anemone (Carpenteria californica), is planted in the foreground.
