HOCKESSIN, DE, March 1st, 2015 – American Beauties Native Plants is teaming up with Country Gardens magazine and renowned author and landscape designer Scott Calhoun to give away a Wildlife Waystation valued at $7,500. The contest will appear as a full page spread in the spring, summer and fall issues of the magazine and through their social media outlets. The spring issue will be on sale March 10th. “With a readership of 500-600,000 this will surely drive traffic to our IGC’s all year long!” Co-owner of American Beauties, Mark Sellew.
The lucky winner will receive a garden design, consultation and installation with Mr. Calhoun of Zona Gardens, a water feature and native plants, all courtesy of American Beauties. “I am thrilled to be working with Country Gardens magazine. It’s a first-class publication with enormous reach. I couldn’t think of a better way to tell our story about the special relationship between native plants and the wildlife we hold so dear.” Marketing Director of American Beauties Native Plants, Peggy Anne Montgomery.
To build a wildlife waystation you need to provide wildlife with regionally appropriate native plants, a source of clean water, shelter and a place for them to raise their young. All of this can and should be incorporated into a beautiful garden design, that’s where our friend Scott Calhoun comes in. “My goal is to design a wildlife waystation that is a favorite spot in the garden for animals and humans. With color, water, and native plants, I expect the wildlife waystation to become a hub of activity and a focal point.” - Scott Calhoun
“Wildlife habitats are being lost at an alarming rate, just think of the declining numbers of Monarch butterflies. That makes our backyard habitats increasingly important. Everyone can help by planting more natives and building your own wildlife waystations. We’re proud to be working with Scott and Country Gardens magazine to help get this important message out to the public.” Co-owner of American Beauties, Steve Castorani.
