Last year we installed a butterfly garden in front of our building on Electric Avenue. In addition to planting milkweed to attract monarch butterflies, the new landscape features California native plants, rocks and even a pomegranate tree! The ground is soft aromatic seder mulch.
With a consciousness to water conservation and drought awareness, the butterfly garden, herb & floral boxes will utilize drip irrigation thereby reducing our water usage. Sipping only 10 minutes of water every other day, the garden has already attracted onlookers and compliments.
The next time you check it out, please do us all a favor and pick out any loose garbage and help us keep the garden beautiful!
