To get started:
1.	Think locally. Incorporate a diverse mix of native plants suitable for your climate and region.
2.	Plant in patches. Establish flowers and grasses in groups to provide ample forage and make flowers
easily visible to pollinators.
3.	Provide a bounty of blooms. Include plants that flower in different seasons to ensure blooms from
spring through fall.
4.	Give pollinators a drink. Include a water feature to provide a source of clean water.
To maintain:
1.	Leave room for nests. Avoid tilling, applying too much mulch, or using weed cloth to preserve
space for ground nesting.
2.	Limit the use of pesticides. Some pesticides may harm pollinators and their habitat.
Follow all label directions and precautions.
3.	Leave these for the bees. Leave woody materials in place during fall garden maintenance to
provide habitat year-round. Conduct spring cleanup after pollinators emerge.
