Lizard Houses

Part of permaculture design is attracting beneficial critters into the garden to do the dirty work for you. One of our favorite creatures to attract are lizards. They love to eat up any sort of nasty bug that wants to eat our garden goodies. Farmer C is in charge of lizard house construction. He builds them primitive little shelters made of rocks and scrap boards so they have a place to bask or hide as needed.

In the morning, there are dozens of lizards zipping around the gardens, hard at work. Here are a couple of prime examples:
