Wildlife in the gardenvertical leafy vine artMost Idaho gardens are alive with songbirds and beneficial insects and many are visited by deer, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, voles, and even the occasional snake. Which critters you welcome, which ones you tolerate, and which ones you simply refuse to share space with is a very personal matter. On this page, you’ll find information to help you decide just how “wild” you’d like your garden to be and how to make it more-or less-so.
