One of the best ways to avoid the use of chemical pesticides in your garden is to invite birds.  Birds dine on bugs, and their tastes vary by species.  The more varieties of bird species present in the garden, the more insects will be consumed.  So how do we promote this avian diversity? By planting a large variety of plants. Birds also differ in their plant tastes, so the more varieties your garden holds, the more varied the bird population.  Native plants are best, but non-natives work too.  A professional landscape designer or horticulturist, such as myself (there’s the shameless self-promotion) can help you design the plantings that will not only bring birds and decrease insects, but will provide pleasure throughout the season as well.
