Book Description

March 1 2008 Brooklyn Botanic Garden All-Region Guide
If you can own only one book on attracting wildlife to your garden, this is it. Unlike other volumes, which offer only generalities like “reduce the size of your lawn,” this concise manual provides ten specific projects and countless tips for transforming your garden into a refuge. Inside you’ll find helpful information on the best natural bird foods and feeders, lists of plants with proven wildlife appeal in your region, easy-to-read garden plans, and more. Best of all, these sustainable, organic ideas can work in many types of outdoor spaces—window boxes, terraces, small city backyards, and large suburban yards. In short, there’s everything necessary for creating a garden that wows birds, butterflies, appealing critters…and humans too.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ideal reference and a welcome, useful, recommended addition April 2 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Even the most domestic of gardens are living ecosystems that, for best effect, also incorporate insects, birds and small mammals for a well-balanced and dynamic habitat. The latest addition to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden All-Region Guides series, "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is specifically written by horticulturist Janet Marinelli (and former director of publications for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden) to provide aspiring and practicing gardeners with ten beautifully illustrated 'hands-on' wildlife garden projects complete with 'user friendly' step-by-step instructions. "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is a valued on-going reference guide for gardeners with its wealth of practical, real-world tips for turning yards and back lots into eco-havens for birds, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects. Also provided are lists of native plants, organized by region for easy reference, which are found to be especially supportive of (and attractive to) a diversity of wildlife. Enhanced with detailed plans for wildlife-friendly flower borders, container gardens, nest boxes, bat houses, and bee shelters, "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is an ideal reference and a welcome, useful, recommended addition to personal, professional, school, and community Wildlife and Gardening instructional guide collections and supplemental reading lists.

5.0 out of 5 stars a lttle book wth big information May 22 2008
By jan tucker - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great guide to attracting wildlife to your backyard. It is pretty basic but gives you information on birds and plants that are easy to implement and follow-thru on.
The pictures are wonderful.
It is geared more to the novice gardner and birdwatcher, but would be enjoyable for anyone interested in these hobbies to read.
It has information for all regions of the USA.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wildlife Gardener's Guide July 16 2013
By SMidge - Published on Amazon.com
I just moved into my first house with several acres behind it and found this little gem while visiting one of my favorite nature centers. I have always loved and appreciated my local wildlife and am somewhat of a landscaping beginner with big ideas for bird, butterfly, and bee gardens. I can't wait to put this to good use in creating my own little backyard sanctuary! This is definitely a nice little quick reference book worth adding to your library. Enjoy!
