A question to gardeners about yard certification.
"My yard is a certified backyard wildlife habitat" - what does it mean? Who certifies it and what is necessary to get it?
Excellent, what this indeed means is simply that the National Wildlife Federation designated your yard as a "Certifed Wildlife Habitat." The previous owner or the party that had it certified were given a small poster or plaque to identify it. There are set conditions that must be in place to have it certified (i.e. water source, native shrubs and trees, etc.).
