How to Plant a Butterfly Garden
There are many elements that harmonize together to offer a thriving butterfly garden. Showplace Lawns understands the importance of location. With the majority of plants that attract butterflies needing a lot of sun, our experts can help you find a sunny area that has rich, deep, organic soils to grow to their full potential. Raised beds are frequently recommended as well as dense foliage to attract the butterflies. Bear in mind, a seeming drawback is that bees, wasps, moths in addition to hummingbirds will be drawn to the area as well. Butterfly gardens need plenty of moisture since the butterflies get their water needs from mud, which coincidentally provides minerals. There needs to be shelter for the butterflies since Austin, Texas gets hot and adult butterflies need shade. Providing a cool place to hide and pupate, we most often include trees, grasses, shrubs, garden benches and other garden structures in our designs.
