William and Karen Freck
1552 Lauren Ashleigh DriveThe Frecks have created a haven for butterflies, birds, and bees. They provide a smorgasbord of plants rich in nectar to attract every kind of butterfly and bee imaginable. In their front yard you will find blooming lantana, rudbeckia, pipe vine, lavender and butterfly bush, just to name a few. Birds, especially finches, enjoy the zinnia, cone flower, and goldenrod. The backyard is abundant in native plants and fruit-bearing shrubs and trees. Mr. Freck built a shelter for Monarch caterpillars which allows them to munch on common milkweed and create their chrysalis without danger of predators. Once the Monarch Butterfly hatches, they are released. There is also a good size vegetable garden, with tomatoes, squash, beans, asparagus and newly planted collard greens. As one walks through this space, it is apparent the Frecks love gardening and providing for pollinators and wildlife.
