Andy and his husband moved to their home in east Bloomington 10 years ago and immediately began a methodical (ok - perhaps “slow”) process of converting the lawn and beds to native plantings. The goal has been to to create usable living and entertaining spaces that are beautiful but also support a myriad of insect and bird life. While there’s still room to grow, they now have diverse plantings that take advantage of various microclimates within the yard including a roadside prairie, dry shade woodland garden, and a small corner of the back yard dedicated to firefly habitat.
