This garden with its structured wildness is extremely low maintenance
and uses little water. The plant selection was based on attracting,
feeding, and sheltering birds, wildlife, butterflies and insects and is
designated a Wildlife Habitat. The pond has a low energy filter system.
No pesticides are used and only natural fertilizers and compost are
used which have turned the hard clay to rich soil.
