Garden Water Features Attract Wildlife; Soothe The Soul

Members of the Los Alamos Master Gardeners (LAMG) recommend adding water features to residential gardens to attract wildlife, soothe the soul and personalize the space. A water feature can be as simple as a bird bath rock or as complex as a waterfall. Los Alamos Master Gardners provided the photos in this piece including Denise George, Rosemarie Frederickson, Cathy Ragsdale, Kimberli Tanner and Robert Walker.
