What Houzz contributors are saying:
if you have the room, leave fallen tree limbs to decompose on the ground, providing a bug buffet for these voracious insectivores.
3. Keep that fallen log. Most of us love to get out the axe and chainsaw when we spot a dying or fallen tree. However, if a tree in your backyard is dying and must be removed, try to save at least part of it for wildlife. A length of fallen trunk on the ground makes a wonderful wildlife home as well as a playspace and can be attractive in a naturalistic garden. In time it will transform into a new type of habitat.
Even without the ocean view, this vignette would suggest the sea in any geographic location. The low, grayish ground cover, the tufted grasses and the sand-colored pavers do the trick ... as well as the wisely positioned driftwood bench.
