Michael A. Gilkey: Butterfly Gardening in Style

The September edition of the Herald-Tribune's Style Magazine included a section on 'green' wedding gifts, and featured butterfly gardens by Sarasota landscape architecture studio Michael A. Gilkey, Inc.

An excerpt: "Butterflies symbolize the cycle of life," says landscape architect Michael Gilkey. "A butterfly garden is a great gift for a new couple starting their lives together." For your newlywed couple, Gilkey will create a butterfly garden that is aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting. But Gilkey stresses there are deeper benefits. "Butterfly habitats are disappearing. The couple's new home can be their home too."
