There's still time to give your lawn one last trim before the winter, but try to leave a mix of short and long grass to provide homes for as many species as possible. Short grass is good for starlings, blackbirds and song thrushes on the hunt for a tasty treat, whilst long grass provides a cosy winter shelter for many insects #homesfornature

I love this fescue grass in certain areas instead of ordinary lawn. It never has to be mowed, and looks like a meadow of 'rolling sea' green. Requires regular watering, however.

Mexican Thread Grass is a low water use, rapidly growing grass that provides the perfect lush backdrop for your desert landscape. In the fall the soft billowy leaves of this grass turn gold and serve as an excellent food source for finches and seed-eating birds. Mexican Thread Grass can grow even in harsh rocky climates, and are a great addition to any xeriscape yard. wateruseitwisely.com
