About the Program
DeMaria Building Company's headquarters is located in Novi, Michigan, approximately 30 miles west of Detroit. In 2020, the team transformed a half-acre parcel of turf grass on their property into a landscaped wildflower garden. The site is located in an urban area, providing an important habitat oasis for small wildlife and pollinators.
Practices and Impacts
- During initial project implementation, the team planted native forbs with a variety of blooming times to provide food and shelter for pollinators throughout the growing season.
- The team regularly monitors the presence of insects, birds, and small mammals to assess and improve the health of their native plant habitat.
