How do you get those pictures, I have many of the same plants as you, but I seem to be missing the insects. I've changed my 1.5 acres of property for 21 years and I don't see any insects. Many oaks, buckeye, hickory trees. Many native plants I even have a native prairie in my back yard. How do you get those pictures?
Jane Egan
01:22:22
Thank-you! A wonderful presentation.

Chester, nice area
Shawna Stambaugh

I use a yellow porch light but it must not be an LED because I still get so many insects attracted to the light.
Jennifer Schneller
01:26:34
What about replacing the turf grass species in lawn? Currently mine has calamint, clover, lungwort, plantain, sedges, blackeyed susans, woodland asters and other native wildflowers that just get mowed along with the grass. The secret? Just stop spraying. That’s all I did. And just for the record, I am a landscape architect.
Jeni Filbrun
01:27:10
Wonderful topic! Need to step out, but will finish watching on the recording. Thank you!
Shawna Stambaugh
01:27:58
Jennifer how do you replace the grass, mine has lots of clover and I would love to have it all clover, how do I go about doing that?
Jennifer Schneller
01:29:15
@ Shawna: just don’t spray. The bees will take care of the rest. Clover are Fabaceae (bean family), which means they fix nitrogen in the soil, enrich it, and can spread in some pretty bad disturbed areas if left to their own devices.
Jennifer Schneller
01:30:07
My birds also bring in lots of seeds. I have lots of chickadees, too.
Shawna Stambaugh
01:30:09
I definitely do not spray, can I throw clover seed out there and will it take over more quickly?
Rich Evert
01:30:15
Tyler Arboretum near Chester.
Jennifer Schneller
01:30:27
Yes, you can overseed a lawn with clover seed
Shawna Stambaugh
01:30:40
ok great thanks!
Jennifer Schneller
01:30:57
My local zoning code does not specify species for lawn, only that it be mown to 8 inches tall or less.
Shawna Stambaugh
01:32:01
I live in the country so I don't have to worry about anything, I just have a lot of grass.
Denise Ellsworth
01:35:26
I love the Persian rug analogy!
Mark Gilmore
01:37:00
Re yellow light, LEDs, etc. Far too much on this topic to post here, but bottom line is to favor the red / “warm” end of the electromagnetic visible window. Lots of municipalities boast the change to “white” LEDs - bad. We want to favor lighting closer to 3000 degrees Kelvin. “White” light is actually in the opposite / “daylight” end of the color spectrum, 5000 to 6500 degrees Kelvin, BAD for all nocturnal life-forms. Do internet search for “lighting degrees Kelvin” for a start. See also “dark sky” initiatives.

? he said 20 years ago which really didn’t understand. so he said plant now and then it will be later when what you planted you can see.

I let Goldenrod self-seed in my yard. You’ll see many types of Bees, Birds eating the Caterpillars on the Goldenrod. And in Autumn, lots of seeds for smaller resident birds and migrating birds.

Jennifer Schneller
01:46:54
I love goldenrod! Pollen is very protein rich. The flowers make great tea and honey too. And the stems are good nesting for some native bees.
Jennifer Schneller
01:53:38
Good method to replace lawn with bed (if you are willing to wait one season): Cut a bed edge in the shape/size you want, lay down 4-6 layers of newspaper making sure sheets overlap, cover with 2-3 inches hardwood mulch. Wait 4-6 weeks. Solarization will kill turf, and newsprint will break down as extra organic matter into soil. You can dig through after that to plant bed. No chemicals required.
Catherine Freay
01:53:57
I truly appreciate your presentation! I have read your book Bringing Nature Home. I have been putting your recommendations to work in my own landscape with great success. THANK YOU for making ecological landscaping do-able!
Katie Wean

lasagna layering also called sheet using cardboard which degrades into the soil and attracts worms. then plant on top after a few months

Also, if working with your local USDA for programs, like EQIP or CRP, or have questions for Private Land, your NRCS staff, Service Foresters with ODNR Division of Wildlife, Division of Wildlife Private Lands Biologists, Pheasants Forever Farm BIll Biologists, and Soil and Water Conservation District Staff can help with some of these questions! Reach out, many great local resource professionals out there.
