Your Garden

Your garden will determine what kind of wildlife it can attract.

Most wildlife will not be attracted to a garden where insecticides are commonly used and where there’s little grass or plants. Wild animals need trees, hedges and flowering plants for food and shelter. Ponds and compost heaps also provide benefits for wildlife. Ponds attract many kinds of aquatic insects and amphibians and provide water for wildlife. Insects, other invertebrates and hedgehogs will be attracted to compost heaps as they require shelter when they’re inactive. Insects will attract birds and other wildlife to your garden.
