Wildlife Gardens

Wildlife Gardening

With gardens taking up thousands of square miles of the British landscape and wild areas of the countryside disapearing at an alarming rate, wildlife friendly gardening is playing an increasingly critical role in nature conservation. Our background in wildlife conservation gives us a unique insight into how gardening techniques can improve the wildlife in your garden.

 

The main idea of the wildlife friendly garden is to encourage a variety of habitats within the garden and to grow as many different kinds of plant as you can to encourage different pollinators.

Sustainable Gardens

Sustainable gardening looks to create havens for wildlife whilst reducing the gardens carbon footprint. It focuses on encouraging the use of recycled and renewable rescourses, promoting biodiversity and conservation, and takes on an organic approach to gardening

Ideas

Make sure there is something in flower right through the season

Grow a good mixture of flower types,

Grow plants with a long flowering season.

 

Allow areas of lawn to grow long and encourage plants like clover to flower.

In our gardens, we try to follow these simple principles as much as possible:

  • Use non peat based products.
  • Compost garden waste.
  • Use local nurseries that propagate and grow their own plants.
  • Use fertilisers and pesticides sparingly.
