Eco Brooklyn’s show house is now home to a beautiful new landscape which has been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Nestled among many homes in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY this garden provides a home for a wide variety of shrubs and perennials that have invited in a number of different pollinators.
Planted with all native species, the garden is thriving and teeming with life. Honey bees have been spotted coming down from the roof to visit the new garden. The butterflies flutter from garden to garden and take their time to enjoy some nectar before moving on. Other beneficial insects, including some ichneumon wasps, have also been spotted buzzing around the garden. They help to keep the detrimental invasive species of insects at bay.
A small pond and meandering stream also occupy the site giving it a place for birds to bathe, fish to swim and the relaxing, harmonious sound of moving water that completes the desired effect of being in a natural setting.
