Naturescape Manitoba

Naturescape Manitoba is a "how-to" and source book for "people who want to bring back a bit of the natural world to their surroundings, attract more birds and butterflies to their garden, or simply do something different in their yard." It's an exciting new book offering an alternative to conventional gardening approaches and providing readers with information and a wide range of project ideas for native planting, low-maintenance yard care and water conservation. This 200-plus page book features full-colour photographs, original sketches and water-colour paintings, and detailed species information unique to the Prairies Ecozone of Manitoba. If you are interested in any aspect of wildlife or nature, you will find this book both interesting and useful.

Naturescape Manitoba provides the reader with an extensively researched and expert reviewed guide to naturalizing your yard or neighbourhood. It also includes a section of resources that will guide the reader to other sources of information and even supplies that will help them to naturalize their corner of the world.

It includes projects such as building a bird house for wrens to much more complex plans like turning your entire yard into a small forest. These projects provide plans and even layouts for flower gardens at the same time teaching broader concepts about how to bring a little bit of nature into your yard while minimizing the problems and pests.
