Pollinator Pathways Darien, CT | Landscape Design Case Studies

Pollinator Pathways is spreading with incredibly encouraging speed and enthusiasm throughout New England.  The organization’s mission is to promote pollinator-friendly landscapes throughout geographic areas, to help connect habitats and bridge the gap of development and habitat destruction.  Connecticut is leading the way with many local divisions in Fairfield County, especially in Darien, CT.  Through these grassroots efforts, we’ve been able to connect with new, like-minded clients to help bring their Pollinator Pathway landscape to fruition.  We’ve gathered our favorite Pollinator Pathway Darien landscapes, designed and installed by Green Jay Landscape Design, to help inspire—and hopefully motivate—you to do the same in your landscape!

Bird and Pollinator Sanctuary in Darien, CT

This bird-loving client wanted to devote the entire landscape to a bird sanctuary.  Of course, to attract birds, you must supply what birds eat: berries, caterpillars, and other insects. The best way to achieve a buffet for birds is to plant native – these plants are hosts for pollinators and insects and are an important part of the ecological food chain in many respects.

We designed numerous native pollinator gardens for the different microclimates throughout the property.  A cascading water feature also attracts birds to bathe in and drink from.

Terraced Permaculture Front Yard Garden in Darien, CT

This front yard permaculture garden was too fun to design! Permaculture emphasizes making land more productive while respecting natural ecological systems.  This garden employs fruit-producing trees and shrubs, and as a result needed a fair share of pollinator-attracting perennials for any of the plants to produce berries! We had a blast designing with a mix of native and non-natives to “stack functions” and create habitat for pollinators.  A Pollinator Pathway property no doubt!
