Wildlife Friendly Gardens Part ONE

We at HART believe that everyone can make a difference in supporting the survival of our wildlife. Just a few small steps taken in your own backyard could create a haven for our animal friends and really help them thrive in your area.

Gardens can provide rich habitats for wildlife, in rural or urban areas, because they give lots of places for animals to feed from, places to hide away, places to lay eggs and build nests.

Gardens and parks are vital for all types of wildlife, particularly in more built up areas. Your garden can provide a sanctuary for different types of wildlife to eat, somewhere to hide and to reproduce - make sure that your own garden ticks all these boxes throughout the year and not just in Spring and Summer.

Tip One:

Provide a useful habitat by leaving a wild area in your garden, with long grass and dead wood to attract insects
