New to Dothan AL
Hi We have just recently moved to the south from Illinois so I know very little about the soil or plants. We are building a new home and I am interested in a low maintenance perenial, bulb, shrub garden. I like to attract birds and butterflies. I compost and would be interested in how to have a nice lawn and garden without using chemicals that harm the environment. What do you do about these little biting ants and those small squirrels that dig into the ground? Any advice is welcome, I'm so looking forward to having my own dirt again to play in.
