"Undesirable" back yard tenants
Skunks... well, not really, as according to the Humane Society for the most part skunks stay out of our way.
Our landscape design for our backyard is what I call "rustic," we let wildflowers bloom even though they give our beds a very much unmanicured look.
On the other hand, we have plenty of different species of birds, bees, butterflies (and yes, mosquitos) and such and have a more Jain-like attitude to those species. I contrast our backyard habitat (which qualifies for the NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat program) to the very manicured lots which have minimal bird activity.
(Note that this is the first time we've seen a skunk. We do have raccoons from time to time. Bats fly around from time to time, but we aren't close enough to a water source to put up a bathouse.)
