Green Tip: Development makes vast tracts of land inhospitable to animal life each year. Make your yard more wildlife-friendly to help offset these losses by planting native species, especially those that produce nectar and edible fruits, seeds, or leaves (they'll also require less watering). You can keep at least a tenth of the area "natural"-lawn free-to reserve space for animals. Install a birdbath or other water source. And be prepared to fence off your vegetable and flower gardens unless you're willing to share them, too.

Bonus: If spring weather has landscaping on your mind, think about using an old farm trick to guide your tree planting. Plant evergreens on your house's windy side (usually west) and broadleaf varieties on the sunny side (normally south). That way, you're catching the sun in the winter and shade in the summer, and you're screened from harsh winds year round. (These tips brought to you by Page-a-Day calendar.)
