Know Your Garden's Insect Friends and Foes

Insects are virtually everywhere, and it's impossible to keep them out of your garden. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. A wide variety of insect life promotes biodiversity in the wild, and the same is true for your garden.

Most of the insects you encounter in your garden are probably of the beneficial variety. So, when designing your garden, make sure to leave some areas wild and undisturbed. Leave a section of the grass unmowed, build bug boxes, spread mulch, and plant a wide variety of flowering plants, including angelica, buckwheat, dill or fennel, marigolds, and sunflowers.
