Anne Engelking Wellman shared photos – and a video! – of how she rebuilt her garden after it was destroyed by construction. She says,
“We’re in Newark, Delaware and have had a cottage garden for some years which has been shared on Fine Gardening. Two years ago we had to have that garden almost totally destroyed for a septic drainage field revision. We lost a tree, evergreens, roses, part of one pond was damaged, and the soil was completely ruined. By suggesting a change in the configuration of the underground pipes, we were able to save the grape arbor and a holly tree.
I like to record progress with garden photos and videos. After quite a bit of work done by my husband and me to repair the renovation mess, we now have much less lawn and many more flowers to enjoy.”

Anne has picked some wonderful varieties to attract pollinators to her garden. To learn what plants help to attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators – check out these articles:
