Creating a Garden Wildlife Sanctuary

There are lots of things that you can do if you want to create a safe place for nature to thrive in your garden. Here are some ideas that may help…

Feeding the Birds – One of the easiest things that you can do when you are helping wildlife in the garden is to feed the birds. Use a range of different foods and make sure that your bird table is out of reach of cats.

Planting a Tree – Trees provide food, shelter and a home for many different creatures, even one tree can support hundreds of species. If you want a tree that is already grown, then find semi mature trees for sale.

Growing Wildflowers – Native wildflowers are essential for the survival of many species and for pollinating insects. A wildflower patch can attract a range of bees and butterflies to the garden.

Don’t use Pesticides – One of the biggest issues that affects many creatures is the use of chemical pesticides on crops. This is having an impact on the bee population, as well as other pollinators, which is causing a drastic decline in the insect population.

Build a Pond – A pond is a great habitat and even smaller ponds are teeming with life. Create a garden pond and soon you will see many creatures setting up home in and around it.

Put in Housing – Make sure that animals that visit your garden have places to shelter. Bird nesting boxes, bee and bug hotels and hedgehog houses all provide a space for animals to shelter, whether hibernating over the winter or finding a suitable place to raise their young.
