We have a certified Pollinator Friendly yard. One of the requirements is to leave part of the property unmown. This is one of the first steps anyone can take to make it critter friendly.
We also eliminate pesticide and herbicide use, and choose native species to grow. And we are constantly battling the invasive Multiflora Rose, Tearthumb and Autumn Olive, as well as the beautiful but destructive Spotted Lantern Fly. This quilt pays homage to that first step--don't mow a patch!
