The Shady Maple House, Baltimore, MD
What do carnivorous plants, cranberries in a bog, a xeric garden, a rain garden, a rain barrel, hundreds of native plants, and a pond, all have in common? They are all excellent habitat features; and, they can all be found on this quarter-acre property in suburban Baltimore! If you are looking for ways to “fit-it-all-in” on a small plot, this featured site should inspire you. Their yard is so appealing to wildlife that in the summer their front yard is THE destination for watching fireflies. Get out your pencil and paper, or smart phone, and be prepared to take some notes for your own property.
