Wildlife Comes First

Places created for wildlife do not need to be hidden away. This front garden served a functional purpose, but now is a welcoming habitat for birds, bees and butterflies and can be watched and enjoyed from the deck.

The grass is still cut to keep the garden looking neat, however all the planting was chosen with insects, bees and butterflies in mind.

There is a small pond that provides a home to frogs, newts and dragonflies and a source of water for birds and insects to drink from.

Log piles hidden in the plants provide habitats and shelter and the fencing was changed so hedgehogs can move freely about the garden.
