Veranda Magazine Highlights Hollander Pollinator Gardens

8 pollinator-friendly design ideas for home gardens

“Pollinators play an essential role in our gardens,” says landscape architect Melissa Reavis of New York-based Hollander Design. “Without them, we would no longer have flowers, which would mean no fruit. They play a huge role in our food supply, of which 75 percent is pollinated by insects.”

Pollinators are also responsible for ensuring gardens will have more prolific blooming seasons. “When we bring them into our gardens, we get much more biodiversity in our residential spaces—and we benefit from that biodiversity,” says Reavis. “The more insects you have, the more blooms you will have.”
