As I'm reading about how to create snags (I took a break to be outside), CNN has a segment called Restoring Nature Build a backyard habitat!

The man interviewed mentioned creating a brush pile, how mowed grass is like a dessert to wildlife*, and the anchors mentioned doing research to see what is native to your area.

*I've used that analogy myself, but now I'm thinking that a dessert is a unique habitat that supports a lot of life...but to the general public, I bet it is still a good analogy.
"If suburbia were landscaped with meadows, prairies, thickets or forests, or combinations of these, then the water would sparkle, fish would be good to eat again, birds would sing and human spirits would soar." ~ Lorrie Otto
