PLAN it WILD’s Bird Chowdown Habitat Garden Starter Kit


Available to Westchester & Putnam County residents only at this time.


Bring local songbirds to your outdoors. Designed for the low-maintenance-loving gardener, this 3’X3’ kit includes 10 native plants and all the tools and templates you’ll need to create a stunning wildflower design in about an hour.

Forget about buying bagged bird seed, give the birds what they really want – fresh seed straight from your new habitat garden! Not only that, the native plants in your garden will provide icing on the cake in the form of nectar and by hosting tons of different caterpillars which the birds eat. Chickadees, goldfinches, cardinals, nuthatches, and sparrows will chowdown on a buffet of aster, coneflower, and beardtongue. Prairie dropseed grass provides a source of cover and wild petunia serves as a green mulch, spreading along the ground with flowers that are known to attract hummingbirds and hummingbird moths.

Kit contents: 10 native plant landscape plugs, 6 coir mulch blocks, pre-cut biodegradable weed barrier with 4 biodegradable landscape stakes,  plant garden labels, bulb digger, digital instruction and maintenance cards, and landscape-architect designed 3ft x 3ft color printed plan.

Plant habitat garden kit in a spot that gets full sun (6+ hours of sun a day) and an average amount of water and/ or is a little dry. Ideal to plant this habitat garden kit over a mowed area of grass and replace lawn with habitat.
